German Neonatal Network
The network is focussed on the long-term effects of genetic, clinical and social risk factors, the influence of center specific treatment strategies and the support of randomized clinical trials in VLBW-infants ( very low birth weight below 1500 grams ).
- Start Year
- Funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF grant no: 01ER0805 and 01ER1501).
- Study design
- Population cohort
- Follow Up
- Follow-up of infants is guaranteed by annual mail questionnaires and follow-up examination at 5years of age by a study team. Source data verification is evaluated via annual onsite monitoring. Annual written reports provideinformation on clinical courses of VLBWI to the individual centres in our network.
