A novel prophylactic for the prevention of ventilator induced lung injury in preterm infants.
Chief Investigator: Dr Jack Darby
Funding Amount: $99,987
Recipient: University of South Australia
Overview: To survive being born too soon, preterm babies sometimes require ventilation or supplemental oxygen to help them breathe. Whilst this will save their lives, it can severely damage their lungs. This project aims to develop and test a novel prophylactic treatment to protect the lungs of preterm babies.
