Comparison of case classification by probability of “antenatal IAI exposure” with clinical diagnosis of EONS for prediction of short-term adverse neonatal outcomes.


Data presented as n (%) and analyzed by Chi square tests.

Includes newborns with at least one of the following outcomes: IVH grade 3–4, ROP grade 2–4, NEC grade 2–4, BPD and/or death.

*Abbreviations: EONS, early-onset neonatal sepsis; IVH, intraventricular hemorrhage; ROP, retinopathy of prematurity; NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis; BPD, bronhopulmonary dysplasia; CI, confidence interval; OR, odds ratio; NNH, number needed to harm.
