Serotyping of adenoviruses on conjunctival scrapings by PCR and sequence analysis. (1/69)

To detect and identify adenovirus (Ad), we investigated hypervariable regions (HVRs) of Ad by using a combination of PCR and direct sequencing (PCR-sequence) method. Primers for nested PCR to amplify the conserved region in the hexon protein containing HVRs were designed based on hexon gene sequences derived from GenBank. These two primer sets amplified a DNA fragment of 7 HVRs from 16 prototypes of Ad, which were divided into five subgenera, including seven serotypes that are the predominant causative agents of acute conjunctivitis in Japan, and from 31 recent conjunctival scraping specimens from patients with adenoviral conjunctivitis. HVR DNA sequences were determined by means of universal sequence primers. Analysis of the predicted amino acid homology of HVRs among Ad prototypes suggested three regions, HVR4, -5, and -7, to be candidates for the neutralization epitopes. The clinical serotype of specimens was determined by the PCR-sequence method with reference to these three HVRs. The serotype determined according to this method was identical to that obtained by culture isolation and the neutralization test (NT) in all scraping samples, whereas the results of this method did not match PCR and restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis in five samples. It took only three days to detect Ad and to identify the serotype, in contrast to culture isolation-NT, which took at least 2 weeks. These findings indicate that our newly developed PCR-sequence method is applicable for the detection and serotyping of human Ads.  (+info)

Laboratory investigations on viral and Chlamydia trachomatis infections of the eye: Sankara Nethralaya experiences. (2/69)

PURPOSE: To review our experiences on the laboratory investigations of viral and chlamydial conjunctivitis, congenital cataract and acute retinal inflammations seen from 1990 to 1998 at Sankara Nethralaya, Chennai, India. METHODS: Conjunctival swabs/scrapings from 1061 patients with conjunctivitis were investigated. Nested polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) techniques were applied on 74 conjunctival swabs during the 1996 outbreak of acute viral conjunctivitis. The occurrence of Rubella virus in 86 lens aspirates of congenital cataract was investigated. Tests were performed for the association of Herpes simplex virus (HSV), Varicella zoster virus (VZV) and Cytomegalovirus (CMV) with acute retinal inflammation in 32 patients. RESULTS: The causative agents of conjunctivitis were Adenovirus in 13.8%, HSV in 2.2% and C. trachomatis in 20.9% of the patients. Epidemics were due to Adenovirus type 4 in 1991, type 3 in 1992-93 and type 7a in 1996. PCR was 37.9% more sensitive in detecting Adenovirus than virological methods. RFLP identified the conjunctivitis epidemic strain of 1996 as Adenovirus 7a. Rubella virus was isolated from 8.1% of lens aspirates from congenital cataract. Nineteen of the 32 patients with acute retinitis had confirmed virus infections (VZV: 8; HSV: 5; and CMV: 6) and the rapid detection of the virus agent helped institute specific chemotherapy resulting in useful vision in some patients. CONCLUSION: Laboratory investigations for diagnosis of viral and C. trachomatis ocular infections were useful in establishing the aetiology and determining the incidence of causative agents of specific ocular diseases.  (+info)

Molecular evidence of ocular Epstein-Barr virus infection. (3/69)

Ocular manifestations have been attributed to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), largely on the basis of seroepidemiologic data. Two patients who developed conjunctival disease as the presenting feature of EBV infection are reported, each confirmed by in situ hybridization of EBV genome in affected tissue biopsy specimens. Recognition of EBV-induced ocular disease as an initial presentation of clinical EBV infection is important to the practitioner because of the ubiquitous nature of this herpesvirus.  (+info)

Clinical and epidemiological features of acute follicular conjunctivitis with special reference to that caused by herpes simplex virus type 1. (4/69)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: It is reported by the national surveillance of ocular infectious diseases in Japan that 4.3% of cases of epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) diagnosed clinically were caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV). Clinical and virological studies of patients with HSV conjunctivitis were carried out. METHODS: The study population consisted of 478 patients with acute follicular conjunctivitis. Virological analysis was carried out for adenovirus (Ad) and HSV by the cell culture method and fluorescein antibody (FA) method. Polymerase chain reaction for Chlamydia trachomatis was also carried out. RESULTS: From 23 patients, HSV type 1 was isolated but Ad or C trachomatis was not isolated. 87% of cases were unilateral. Most cases showed clinical resolution within 9 days. Early corneal lesions and preauricular lymphadenopathy were less frequent in HSV conjunctivitis than in adenoviral conjunctivitis, especially that due to subgenus D. No case showed a positive result for HSV by the FA method using conjunctival swabs; however, the FA test was positive in all strains isolated by cell culture. CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that it is difficult clinically to differentiate HSV conjunctivitis from adenoviral conjunctivitis in the acute stage, since the clinical features of adenoviral conjunctivitis are similar to those of HSV conjunctivitis. A biological difference may exist between HSV strains causing keratitis and conjunctivitis.  (+info)

No sequence variation in part of the hexon and the fibre genes of adenovirus 8 isolated from patients with conjunctivitis or epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) in Norway during 1989 to 1996. (5/69)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Several local epidemics of keratoconjunctivitis/conjunctivitis caused by adenovirus type 8 (Ad8) occurred in Norway from August 1995 to May 1996. A smaller epidemic occurred in 1992. The Ad8 hexon forms the surface of the virion and contains the hypervariable regions loop I(1) and loop I(2). The fibre mediates the primary contact with cells. Sequence variation in hexon and fibre genes might play an important role in the pathogenicity of adenoviruses. The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic variability at the hexon and fibre genes in 26 strains of Ad8 isolated from 1989 to 1996. METHODS: The genetic variability of 26 strains of Ad8 isolated from 1989 to 1996 was studied by sequencing part of the hexon and fibre genes. The Ad8 sequences were compared with each other and with two Ad8 strains from the EMBL database. In addition, 14 of the 26 isolates were subjected to restriction endonuclease analysis. RESULTS: No significant sequence variation was seen during the six year period. CONCLUSION: The Ad8 strains causing epidemics of keratoconjunctivitis/conjunctivitis in Norway are genetically stable.  (+info)

The antiviral resistance and replication of cidofovir-resistant adenovirus variants in the New Zealand White rabbit ocular model. (6/69)

PURPOSE: To determine the antiviral resistance of three cidofovir (CDV)-resistant variants of adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) and their ability to replicate in the New Zealand White rabbit ocular model. METHODS: Rabbits were inoculated topically in both eyes with the CDV-resistant variants R1, R2, and R3, and the Ad5 parental strain. On day 1, rabbits from each virus inoculation were divided into two topical treatment groups: 0.5% CDV and PBS control. Treatment was administered twice daily in both eyes for 7 days. All eyes were cultured for virus on days 0, 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 14. Using viral outcome parameters, CDV resistance was determined for each virus by comparing each CDV-treated virus group to its respective PBS control, and altered pathogenesis was assessed by comparing viral replication in the PBS control groups of the Ad5 parent and the three resistant variants. RESULTS: Topical 0.5% CDV treatment demonstrated significant antiviral inhibitory activity in the Ad5 parental group (e.g., reduced total Ad5-positive cultures, reduced daily Ad5-positive cultures on days 5, 9, 11, and 14, and duration of ocular shedding), but had no effect on the three CDV-resistant variants. There were no significant differences in pathogenicity between the Ad5 parent and the CDV-resistant variants. CONCLUSIONS: The Ad5 variants R1, R2, and R3 were resistant to topical treatment with 0.5% cidofovir in the rabbit ocular model. However, the acquisition of CDV resistance did not alter the replication of the three Ad5 CDV variants on the rabbit eye.  (+info)

Rapid detection and typing of oculopathogenic strain of subgenus D adenoviruses by fiber-based PCR and restriction enzyme analysis. (7/69)

PURPOSE: To develop a new detection and typing method of oculopathogenic strains of subgenus D adenoviruses directly from conjunctival scrapings by a combination of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and restriction enzyme analysis (REA). METHODS: A new PCR method using primer pairs of AF2/AR2, which are specific for the fiber genes, were developed to amplify 1150-bp products from nine oculopathogenic prototypes of subgenus D adenoviruses. Amplicons were cleaved with three restriction enzymes: DdeI, HinfI, and RsaI. Clinical specimens of 102 conjunctival scrapings were also evaluated by this PCR method. Restriction patterns of prototypes were used for the typing of clinical samples. Detection limit was determined by the PCR amplification of a known amount of purified adenovirus serotype 8 DNA. RESULTS: A novel PCR method based on the fiber genes allowed the amplification of nine oculopathogenic serotypes of subgenus D (Ad8, Ad9, Ad15, Ad17, Ad19, Ad22, Ad28, Ad37, and Ad39). As little as 38.4 fg of adenovirus type 8 could be detected by this method. Positive results were obtained from 48 of 102 samples (47%) by both hexon- and fiber-based PCR, whereas only 29 of 102 (28.4%) yielded positive results by culture isolation/neutralization test (NT). All positive specimens (29 samples) of culture isolation and PCR-RFLP methods showed positive results by our new fiber-based PCR method, and no positive products were detected from other subgenus of adenovirus or nonadenoviral DNA. CONCLUSIONS: A newly developed fiber-based PCR-REA method for the detection and typing of adenoviruses is faster than any former PCR methods. This all-in-1-day detection and typing method will be quite useful to the rapid diagnosis of subgenus D adenovirus infection.  (+info)

Detection of antibodies to a disease-associated herpesvirus of the green turtle, Chelonia mydas. (8/69)

Lung-eye-trachea disease-associated herpesvirus (LETV) is linked with morbidity and mortality in mariculture-reared green turtles, but its prevalence among and impact on wild marine turtle populations is unknown. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed for detection of anti-LETV antibodies and could distinguish LETV-exposed green turtles from those with antibodies to fibropapillomatosis-associated herpesvirus (FPHV). Plasma from two captive-reared green turtles immunized with inactivated LETV served as positive controls. Plasma from 42 healthy captive-reared green turtles and plasma from 30 captive-reared green turtles with experimentally induced fibropapillomatosis (FP) and anti-FPHV antibodies had low ELISA values on LETV antigen. A survey of 19 wild green turtles with and 27 without FP (with and without anti-FPHV antibodies, respectively) identified individuals with antibodies to LETV regardless of their FP status. The seroprevalence of LETV infection was 13%. The presence of antibodies to LETV in plasma samples was confirmed by Western blot and immunohistochemical analyses. These results are the first to suggest that wild Florida green turtles are exposed to LETV or to an antigenically closely related herpesvirus(es) other than FPHV and that FPHV and LETV infections are most likely independent events. This is the first ELISA developed to detect antibodies for a specific herpesvirus infection of marine turtles. The specificity of this ELISA for LETV (ability to distinguish LETV from FPHV) makes it valuable for detecting exposure to this specific herpesvirus and enhances our ability to conduct seroepidemiological studies of these disease-associated agents in marine turtles.  (+info)

Bacterial conjunctivitis is less common than viral conjunctivitis. It is caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Moraxella catarrhalis and Haemophilus influenzae.. These bacteria are members of the normal colonies living on healthy eyes and usually do not cause disease. However, they can proliferate and cause conjunctivitis in certain conditions, such as dry eye, after damage to the eye, or in a weakened immune system. More commonly, though, these bacteria simply cause conjunctivitis when transmitted from an infected person to a non-infected person.. Like viral conjunctivitis, bacterial conjunctivitis is contagious. One or both eyes may be involved and they are also red, irritated and gritty. However, bacterial conjunctivitis usually produces a sticky whitish or yellowish discharge like pus, in contrast to the watery tears of viral conjunctivitis..

Treatment of conjunctivitis is as per the cause. One must avoid self-medication and prefer treatment as per the advice of the doctor. Most cases of conjunctivitis tend to clear up in one to two weeks even without treatment. A large part of the treatment for conjunctivitis is aimed at providing symptomatic relief and decreasing the duration and severity of the condition. Patients who suffer from watering, mild pain, redness, and grittiness of eyes of a short duration may be having viral conjunctivitis. Maintaining good hygiene by frequent hand washing and avoiding sharing of personal items such as handkerchiefs is advisable. Keeping a cold compress over the eyes provides symptomatic relief. Lubricating eye drops may help relieve irritation. If symptoms persist or worsen then a prompt referral to a health care professional is needed.

In cases of bacterial conjunctivitis, a physician may prescribe an antibiotic eye ointment or eye drops containing sodium sulfacetamide (Sulamyd) to be applied daily for seven to 14 days. If, after 72 hours, the condition does not improve, a physician or primary care provider should be notified, because the bacteria involved may be resistant to the antibiotic used or the cause may not be bacterial. For cases of conjunctivitis caused by a gonococcal organism, a physician may prescribe an intramuscular injection of ceftriaxone ...
Conjunctivitis is the term used to describe swelling of the conjunctiva - the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids and the white part of the eye, known as the sclera. There are three forms of conjunctivitis: viral, bacterial and allergic.. Viral conjunctivitis, the most common form of pink eye, is caused by the same virus that causes the common cold. Just as a cold must run its course, so must this form of pink eye. It is also very contagious.. Bacterial conjunctivitis is a highly contagious form of pink eye, caused by bacterial infections. This type of conjunctivitis usually causes a red eye with a lot of pus.. Allergic conjunctivitis is a form of conjunctivitis that is caused by the bodys reaction to an allergen or irritant. It is not contagious. This type of conjunctivitis is usually associated with redness in the white of the eye or inner eyelid.. How do you get pink eye and how do you prevent it? ...
School children, teachers and day care workers are at a particularly high risk for contracting conjunctivitis, commonly called pink eye. The telltale symptom is red eye(s). Although conjunctivitis is a fairly common condition, it is important to be able to differentiate between viral and bacterial conjunctivitis as treatment depends on the type of conjunctivitis contracted.. Pink eye is most commonly caused by the same virus that causes the common cold. Viral conjunctivitis is very contagious and may be spread by contact, a cough or a sneeze. One or both eyes may be affected and symptoms include itchy, watery eyes. Typically pink eye caused by a virus runs its course over several days and, in most cases, no medical treatment is required or indicated. A home remedy of applying a wet washcloth to the eye several times a day can relive symptoms.. On the other hand, bacteria conjunctivitis, also contagious, is more commonly spread by direct contact with infected hands or items that have touched the ...
Signs and Symptoms The two frequently encountered forms of viral conjunctivitis are pharyngoconjunctival fever (PCF) and epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC).1-11 Pharyngoconjunctival fever is characterized by a fever, sore throat, history of recent upper respiratory infection (URI) and follicular conjunctivitis.1,2,4,7,9-11 The condition may be unilateral or bilateral, but classically presents in one eye and is spread to….

In most cases, pink eye is caused by viral or bacterial infections. Bacterial infections tend to affect both eyes and have a lot of thick, green drainage or crusty drainage. In younger children, it is common to have an ear infection simultaneously. Viral conjunctivitis tends to have clear or watery drainage and is often accompanied by a sore throat. Allergic conjunctivitis is caused by an allergen that irritates the eye, and is common in spring or fall and is usually accompanied by other allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching and runny nose. It can also be caused by a scratch on the cornea or irritants entering the eye, such as sand or debris.. ...

Is pink eye contagious? How is it treated?. If the conjuctivitis is caused by an infection (as opposed to an allergy) it can spread quite easily. This is why daycares, pre-schools, and schools tend to jump on the first sign of pink eye. People usually get conjunctivitis by touching something that has touched an infected persons eye-like a towel or a pillowcase (ahem, as in my case), or their hands.. Treatment depends on the cause, which is why its important to get checked out. A Doctor of Optometry is an expert in this department, and an excellent place to go to get you (or your kids) conjunctivitis diagnosed and properly treated. If its a case of viral conjunctivitis, antibiotics wont help. Pink eye caused by a virus will resolve in a few days on its own. If its bacterial conjunctivitis, an antibiotic eye drop or gel will be prescribed. And allergic conjunctivitis requires a different kind of eye drops, or other allergy medicine.. Not everything can be prevented, of course, but certain ...
TREATMENT There is no specific treatment, but sulfonamide therapy helps to prevent secondary infection. Viral Conjunctivitis Blennorrhea is also called inclusion conjunctivitis. It is a venereal infection resulting from nongonorrheal cervicitis and urethritis that can be spread to the eyes during and after intercourse. In the past this form was also spread during swimming and was known as swimming pool conjunctivitis. Adequate chlorination of swimming pools has eliminated this mode of transportation. SYMPTOMS There is usually a copious watery discharge with scanty exudate, occasional fever, and malaise as well as lacrimation, photophobia, sensations of sand or grit in the eye, and burning in the eyelid margins. TREATMENT Isolation techniques, such as separate towels, are advisable. Treat with sulfonamides or tetracycline systemically for 3 weeks. Instill tetracycline drops in oil to supplement the systemic tetracycline. Allergic Conjunctivitis This is commonly and most frequently associated with ...
Mild cases of both bacterial and viral conjunctivitis are self-limiting. For severe bacterial cases of infection an antibiotic ointment is often prescribed. There is no anti-viral treatment for the viral infection. Often the treatment is for symptomatic relief and includes the use of cool compresses and artificial tears, which can be obtained over-the-counter.. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above because they may be indications of more serious eye disease. An ophthalmologist is best trained to diagnose and treat your symptoms.. ...
are more commonly seen with viruses while papillae are seen in bacterial conjunctivitis. There are exceptions to this rule, however, and often a mixed picture with both papillae and follicles can be seen. Clear, mucoid discharge is more indicative of a virus while purulent discharge is associated with bacteria. For herpetic disease, finding periocular vesicles is a key to the diagnosis.. Clear cases of viral conjunctivitis do not require a work-up, but if there is any doubt as to the diagnosis, cultures of ocular discharge are required. Viral disease is treated conservatively with artificial tears and cold compresses. It often takes one to two weeks for symptoms to resolve. If the patient describes loss of vision, he or she should be referred to an ophthalmologist to ensure they have not developed subepithelial corneal infiltrates that require topical steroid therapy. Cases of herpetic conjunctivitis can be treated with vidarabine ointment four to six times per day.. Therapy of bacterial ...
What is sore eyes?. Sore eyes, medically known as conjunctivitis, is a highly contagious infection of the eyes, commonly cause by an adenovirus. There are several serotypes of adenoviruses. The incubation period (from time of exposure to appearance of symptoms) is 5 to 12 days. The conjunctiva (thin lining of upper and lowers eyelids that extends to the rim of eyeballs) becomes irritated, inflamed, red, stinging, with watery discharge, and the eyelids could get stuck to each other following sleep. This usually starts with one eye and spreads to the other eye by eye-to-hand-to-eye contamination. The lymph glands (bodys defense filter) behind the ears could be sore and enlarged in many cases.. How is sore eyes transmitted?. Acute viral conjunctivitis spreads very fast, from one eye to the other of the same person, and to other persons the patient comes near to. It is transferred from one person to another by droplet (air environment in the same room or house), fomites (items touched by the ...

AdenoPlus - a rapid, in-office test that can help detect Adenoviral conjunctivitis using a small tear sample - was created to aid in the diagnosis of pink eye. Adenoviral conjunctivitis is highly contagious and can result in prolonged morbidities even after the primary infection has resolved. Due to the overlap in signs and symptoms with other causes of acute conjunctivitis, healthcare providers often treat all conjunctivitis cases with topical antibiotics, which are ineffective against the viral form of the infection. As a result, this course of treatment can lead many patients to return to school, work, or daycare while still contagious. The AdenoPlus test can be performed by a nurse or technician and provides a result in only ten minutes, making the correct diagnosis available at the time of the office visit rather than relying only on overlapping signs and symptoms or waiting for results from a laboratory. The speed and accuracy of the test results help clinicians make an accurate diagnosis ...

For further examination please consult your ophthalmologist, who can diagnose infectious conjunctivitis by its symptoms and appearance. When examining the eye with a slit lamp, the doctor may find conjunctival redness (the white part of the eye is bloodshot, more in the edges than in the middle) and that pus-like, white or yellow discharge is present. By the way: a slit lamp is an instrument that allows inspecting the eye under high magnification. If the disease lasts for a long time, samples of infected secretions may also be analyzed to identify the infecting organism. Blood is not routinely used in diagnosing eye inflammations.. ...
Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the membrane that lines the inner surface of the eyelid and part of the surface of the eye. Conjunctivitis is characterized by redness, clear or coloured discharge, and sometimes itching. It is more common in children, but can also affect adults.
The conjunctiva is a very thin, transparent membrane that covers the outer surface of your eye as well as the inner surface of your eyelid. Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of this layer caused by a bacterial or viral infection or an allergic reaction to an irritant. It is commonly referred to as pinkeye because the white of your eye (sclera), appears pink and blood shot as a result of the dilation of the arteries in response to the inflammation. If the cause is due to a viral or bacterial infection then one should be very careful not to touch the infected eye and then touch the eye that is not infected as the bacteria/viruses are spread by contact. Allergic conjunctivitis is usually much itchier than infectious conjunctivitis and it commonly occurs with swelling of the eyelid. Applying a cold patch over the eye usually helps reduce swelling and itching. In both form of conjunctivitis there is usually increased tear production. The watering in infectious conjunctivitis is often accompanied ...
May 19, 2011 - Comments (4) , RELATED TICKERS: NBY My favorite small cap pharma pick is getting slammed after announcing Phase II results for its drug NVC-422 for treating eye infections. The study failed to meet its primary endpoint for adenoviral conjunctivitis and has dropped 20% in the past two days. Adenoviral conjuctivitis currently does not have an FDA approved treatment. The company saw encouraging results in the same study against epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC), which is one of the most serious eye infections. A treatment for this disease is highly desired within the ophthalmic community. Despite the unwelcomed results NVC-422 was well tolerated across throughout the study. [more] ...
Corneal subepithelial infiltrates are a known complication of adenoviral conjunctivitis.1 These lesions usually become apparent within 10-14 days after onset of symptoms and in some cases may persist for months or even years after the acute phase of the infection. Although the opacities gradually fade with time, those associated with reduced visual acuity may require a course of topical corticosteroids. However, return of the opacities can be seen with discontinuation of the corticosteroids.2 In cases of prolonged follicular conjunctivitis, equivocal ocular signs, or suspected superimposed infections, specimen culture is an important tool to aid diagnosis.3,4. Although small star-shaped ulcers (herpetic stellates) have been documented as a clinical manifestation seen in herpes simplex eye infections,5 these lesions have been confined to the corneal epithelium. To our knowledge, no such lesions have been documented in the tarsoconjunctiva, either in adenoviral or herpes simplex viral ...

The interaction between clinicians and patients produces a dynamic that can affect both and forms a part of the risk associated with medical practice. The clinician can sometimes become the main agent for the spread of disease by omissions, which usually do not affect the medical personnel or the patients. However, under certain circumstances, members of the medical workforce can become risks for their own health and that of their patients by becoming a vector for disease transmission. In this study, we report on an outbreak of conjunctivitis involving both clinicians and patients. Human adenovirus (Ad) belongs to a family comprising about 100 members that are grouped into six subgenera (A-F) based on several biochemical and molecular criteria. Fifty-one Ad types have been identified as human pathogens, some of which are able to survive under adverse conditions outside of the human body [1,2]. A typical Ad infection includes a 5-12 day incubation period before the onset of symptoms followed by a ...

Prevention includes the use of breast milk and probiotics.[2] A 2012 policy by the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended feeding preterm infants human milk, finding "significant short- and long-term beneficial effects," including reducing the rate of NEC by a factor of two or more.[10] Small amounts of oral feeds of human milk starting as soon as possible, while the infant is being primarily fed intravenously, primes the immature gut to mature and become ready to receive greater intake by mouth.[11] Human milk from a milk bank or donor can be used if mother's milk is unavailable. The gut mucosal cells do not get enough nourishment from arterial blood supply to stay healthy, especially in very premature infants, where the blood supply is limited due to immature development of the capillaries, so nutrients from the lumen of the gut are needed. A Cochrane review in 2014 found that supplementation of probiotics enterally "prevents severe NEC as well as all-cause mortality in preterm ...
