  Purpose

S100B, a calcium-binding protein, is found predominantly in the central nervous system (CNS) and is increased in CSF and blood after CNS injury. There are two objectives to this study. 1) To complement our previous study, is urine S100B concentration correlated with gestational age in infants born at > 28 weeks gestation during the first week of life? 2) Is the urine concentration of S100B affected by intracranial pathology in this gestational age range? Elevation of urine concentration of S100B may be an indicator that the infant will develop serious intracranial pathology and may allow for early initiation of treatment to potentially decrease morbidity.

Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

Infants born at >28 weeks gestation will be eligible for enrollment in this study. Infants with fetal malformations, chromosomal anomalies, clinically significant sepsis (retractable hypotension, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia), or no urine output for the first 48 hours will be excluded. Infants that meet criteria will be enrolled in this study if the parent(s) sign the consent form. There are no patient safety or adverse event issues as this study is non-invasive and observational only.

Criteria
