Further study details as provided by University of Oxford:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Appreciable neurodevelopmental impairment defined as a Bayley III score of <85 in any one of the 3 main domains (cognitive, language and motor domains) [ Time Frame: at 2 years corrected age ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    P ≤0.05 will be the level used to indicate statistical significance.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Blood levels of T4, TSH and TBG on day 7, 14, 28 and 34 weeks corrected age. [ Time Frame: 2 years corrected age ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Neurodevelopment impairment as a composite of death or a Bayley III score of <85 in any of the score's three main subsets domains: cognitive, language and motor composites. [ Time Frame: 2 years corrected age ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Neurodevelopmental impairment assessed as a difference between the iodine supplemented and placebo groups in each of the four subset scores of the Bayley III i.e. receptive communication, expressive communication, fine motor or gross motor. [ Time Frame: 2 years corrected age ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 1100
