Wishaw General Hospital recruited 6 babies in one month!

Special congratulations and thank you to the team at Wishaw General Hospital who managed to recruit 6 babies in November 2018 and have thus sextupled their monthly recruitment target. What an achievement. Well done!

Baby-OSCAR reaches the 300th milestone!

Many congratulations to everyone. Baby-OSCAR, the study investigating early targeted treatment of PDA with ibuprofen in extremely preterm babies, recruited its 300th participant. This would not be possible without the strong collaboration of committed neonatologists, skilled echo-cardiographers and amazing nurses working together across the UK.

Particular congratulations to the team at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough who secured this milestone by recruiting twins on 23rd September 2018. Well done team.

We thank all parents for enrolling their babies into the study in support of this important research.

The Royal London recruited their first Baby-OSCAR!
