Dr. McElroy Publishes in Journal of Pediatrics

Congratulations to Dr. Steve McElroy (neonatology) for his recent article accepted for publication/published online in the Journal of Pediatrics on Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC).

Necrotizing Enterocolitis: Using Regulatory Science and Drug Development to Improve Outcomes.

Abstract portion:

In this review, the International Neonatal Consortium NEC working group addresses key issues that relate to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of NEC while suggesting a path forward to evaluate the safety and efficacy of each product. Despite years of clinical investigation, additional key data elements are needed to meet the requirements of regulatory agencies and evidence-based medicine.4 These include reliable diagnostic criteria, biomarkers predictive of risk and prognosis, and criteria for the design and conduct of clinical trials with consistent and clinically meaningful outcome measures for therapeutic trials.
