Preterm infants show increased adiponectin levels in first weeks of life

April 17, 2015

In very preterm infants, blood concentrations of adiponectin appear to increase significantly within the first 3 weeks of life, according to recent findings.

In an in-hospital, prospective, longitudinal cohort study, Chatarina Löfqvist, PhD, of The Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital in Sweden, and colleagues evaluated 52 preterm infants born at Skane University Hospital in Sweden. The infants had a gestational age of 26 weeks and birth weight of 889 g and lacked any major congenital abnormalities. The researchers took standardized measurements of the infants’ weight, length and head circumference at birth and weekly thereafter and calculated standard deviation scores (SDS) for these measurements.
