Dr Caroline Hartley and the rest of the PIPA group have published an article validating the measure of infant nociceptive brain activity used in the Poppi trial. Validation of these approaches is important to ensure that nociceptive brain activity can be interpreted accurately, so effective pain relief measures can be developed for the infant population.
An interview with Dr Rebeccah Slater about the work of the group is also available on the International business times UK website.
The Poppi Trial, led by Dr Eleri Adams and Dr Rebeccah Slater and supported by SSNAP (Support for the Sick Newborn And their Parents), has now been open for 6 months! This trial is running at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, and the Poppi team here have worked incredibly hard to recruit 11 babies so far.
