Research on Low Birth Weight

Reading time: 1 min

The main lines of research are:

  • Analysis of morbidity, mortality and sequelae in newborns for their gestational age (LBWGA) in our setting. The Neonatology Service database, available since 1995, is used.
  • Differential aspects of the longitudinal growth of LBWGA.  Weight, height and cranial circumference, compared to a newborn appropriate for gestational age (AGA).
  • Physiopathology of LBWGA and metabolic and somatic repercussions in the adult.  Metabolic syndrome markers in children and in animal experimentation.
The donations that can be done through this webpage are exclusively for the benefit of Hospital Clínic of Barcelona through Fundació Clínic per a la Recerca Biomèdica and not for BBVA Foundation, entity that collaborates with the project of PortalClínic.
