Clinical Trial Summary

This study is designed to determine whether intratracheal administration of budesonide combined with surfactant, as compared to surfactant alone, will modify ecographic (lung ultrasound score) and biological markers (IL-6 concentration in respiratory secretions) at 7 days of life in preterm infants ≤32 weeks of gestational age (GA).


Clinical Trial Description

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is one of the main morbidities associated with extreme prematurity and, despite the improvement of respiratory care in the latest years, overall incidence is not decreasing. Etiology of BPD is multifactorial and local inflammation plays an important role in it, therfore, local anti-inflammatory drugs could be effective in preventing BPD. Recent randomised trials have shown a lower incidence of BPD/death with the use of a combination of budesonide with surfactat compared to surfactant alone, and further clinical trials are currently ongoing. This is a controlled phase IV, randomised, unicenter clinical trial designed to evaluate the effect of intratracheal administration of budesonide combined with surfactant, as compared to surfactant alone, in BPD in preterm infants ≤32 weeks of GA. Investigators will compare ecographic and biological markers, as well as respiratory outcomes. ;
