PMID:  9835438     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: In this historical cohort study, ELBW infants were not protected against NEC by oral IgG. The present published evidence does not allow recommendation of oral human IgG administration in preterm infants as a prophylactic measure against NEC.
