Diagnostics accompanying therapy to improve the success of therapeutic hypothermia in perinatal hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy (FKZ 13GW0297C)

OBJECTIVE

  • perinatal asphyxia, i.e. a lack of oxygen and blood circulation before, during or shortly after birth, is one of the most common causes of death among children worldwide
  • early identification of neonates with hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy to predict whether the child will benefit from hypothermic therapy

AIM OF THE PROJECT

Development of a diagnostic test system based on a metabolite panel (biomarker) accompanying therapy to improve the success of therapeutic hypothermia in perinatal hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy

TASKS
