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.
