The purpose of the Infant Follow-up Project is to determine the health and neurodevelopmental outcomes of infants at 2 years of age. Follow-up for extremely low birth weight infants is inclusive of surviving infants with birth weights between 401 and 1000 grams (inclusive) OR with gestational ages between 22 weeks, 0 days and 27 weeks, 6 days (inclusive). Follow-up for these infants occurs at 18 - 24 months’ corrected age.
Follow-up for infants enrolled in Vermont Oxford Network clinical trials is specific to infants enrolled in that clinical trial.
