It is rather long, with plenty of charts and graphs, but it all leads to a really incredible conclusion. Premature babies that were at a 100% risk of developing ROP....DID NOT.
None of the infants developed severe ROP or any degree of cerebral intraventricular hemorrhage, nor any evidence of intracranial hypertension as detected by clinical signs or increased ventricular size at ultrasound examinations. One infant (patient 1) had a suspected small thalamic hemorrhage noted on ultrasound on day 1 before the study drug infusion, and this was later confirmed with magnetic resonance imaging at term age. None of the infants developed signs of tonsillar hypertrophy.
