Value of homocysteine levels, troponin I, and score for neonatal acute physiology and perinatal extension II as early predictors of morbidity
Pediatrics International, 04/30/2012
Usluer H et al. – Elevated mtHcy levels were associated with cardiac troponin I (cTnI), score for neonatal acute physiology and perinatal extension II (SNAPPE–II) values, cord blood gas, and neonatal morbidities. These results suggest that SNAPPE–II may be an early predictor of morbidity after delivery and that elevated mtHcy levels may be an early prenatal biomarker of morbidity in newborns.
