Quantification of inflammatory cytokine profiles in three neonatal diseases. [ Time Frame: up to 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
This study will quantify inflammatory cytokine profiles in three neonatal disease states, namely, neonatal sepsis with cardiovascular instability, infants with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia defect, and infants suffering cardiopulmonary failure significant enough to require heart/lung bypass treatment with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

Inflammatory Cytokine Quantification in Infants
Inflammatory Cytokine Quantification in Infants With Documented Sepsis, Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and/or ECMO Therapy

This study proposes to quantify inflammatory cytokine profiles in three neonatal disease states, namely, neonatal sepsis, infants with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia defect, and infants suffering cardiopulmonary failure significant enough to require heart/lung bypass treatment with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

Very small blood samples (500 microliters) will be collected serially in these patients and analyzed with current cytokine array technology. A convenience sample of 60 patients, 20 with each of these diagnoses, will be collected over a 2 year period. These data will provide baseline information for possible therapeutic intervention with agents that enhance or suppress specific mediators, or adjust mediator balance to promote patient healing.
