  • Monitoring the changes of serum BMP-7 and TGF-β1 is very important for treatment and prognosis assessment of the NRDS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Many experts recommend a "trial of therapy" to clarify both prognosis and quality of life. The key ethical question, then, is not whether to postpone a decision to forego mechanical ventilation. Instead, the key question is how long to wait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
