Abstract Objective: Detail adverse neonatal effects in pregnancies treated with indomethacin (I), magnesium sulfate (M), or nifedipine (N). Methods: Women in acute preterm labor with cervical dilatation 1-6cm were randomized to receive one of three first line tocolytic drugs. Results: There were 317 neonates (I=103, M=95, N=119) whose mothers were treated with tocolytic therapy. There was no difference in gestational age at randomization (average 28.6 weeks' gestation) or at delivery (31.6 weeks' gestation, P=0.551), birth weight (P=0.871), or ventilator days (P=0.089) between the three groups. Neonatal morbidity was not different between the three groups; RDS (P=0.086), PDA (P=0.592), sepsis (P=0.590), NEC (P=0.770), IVH (P=0.669), and PVL (P=0.124). Conclusions: There were no statistically significant differences between the three tocolytics as far as composite neonatal morbidity or mortality was concerned.
