Since the 1980s, the long term outcomes of extremely preterm birth, before 28 weeks of gestation, have garnered considerable interest as a result of significant improvements in neonatal care and the consequent increase in survival rates. Compared with birth at full term, extremely preterm birth places infants at increased risk for neurodevelopmental disorders, intellectual impairments and psychiatric sequelae that persist throughout childhood and adolescence.1 There is now increasing interest as to the longer term outcomes for these babies; in particular, whether adverse outcomes persist or increase in adulthood, or whether survivors may outgrow earlier problems.

Funding

The 19-year evaluation of the EPICure cohort was funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) UK (MRC Ref: MR/J01107X/1). Neil Marlow receives a proportion of funding from the Department of Health’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centres funding scheme at University College London Hospital/ University College London.
