BPD EBNEO review on early vitamin A supplementation and BPD
Vitamin A Deficiency Maternal Vitamin A deficiency is common in low- and medium-resource settings and is associated with increased infant mortality. This randomized controlled trial assessed whether oral Vitamin A supplementation delivered to neonates within 72 hours of birth could reduce mortality in the first 6 months of age. Although supplementation resulted in short-term improvements in Vitamin A deficiency, no significant difference in mortality was found. While further analysis is necessary, neonatal Vitamin A supplementation is not effective in preventing infant mortality.
