1. Oral ibuprofen may be an option for closing patent ductus arteriosus in premature babies

Oral ibuprofen may be an option for closing patent ductus arteriosus in premature babies Oral ibuprofen may be an option for closing patent ductus arteriosus in premature babies Dissemination Centre Discover Portal NIHR DC Discover Oral ibuprofen may be an option for closing patent ductus arteriosus in premature babies Published on 3 July 2018 doi: A high dose of oral ibuprofen was more likely to close a patent ductus arteriosus in premature babies when compared with standard doses (...) of intravenous ibuprofen or indometacin. Before birth, a baby's lungs aren't needed for breathing. Most blood bypasses the lungs through a large vessel called the ductus arteriosus directly from the pulmonary artery into the aorta to supply the main circulation. Once born, blood flows through the lungs, and the ductus arteriosus usually closes in the first few days. If it doesn't close it is referred to as "patent". This condition is much more common in premature babies and doesn't always need treatment

Ibuprofen for the treatment of patent ductus arteriosus in preterm or low birth weight (or both) infants. BACKGROUND: Indomethacin is used as standard therapy to close a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) but is associated with reduced blood flow to several organs.

15. Acetaminophen versus Ibuprofen in Young Children with Mild Persistent Asthma. (PubMed)

Acetaminophen versus Ibuprofen in Young Children with Mild Persistent Asthma. BACKGROUND: Studies have suggested an association between frequent acetaminophen use and asthma-related complications among children, leading some physicians to recommend that acetaminophen be avoided in children with asthma; however, appropriately designed trials evaluating this association in children are lacking. METHODS: In a multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group trial, we enrolled 300 (...) children (age range, 12 to 59 months) with mild persistent asthma and assigned them to receive either acetaminophen or ibuprofen when needed for the alleviation of fever or pain over the course of 48 weeks. The primary outcome was the number of asthma exacerbations that led to treatment with systemic glucocorticoids. Children in both groups received standardized asthma-controller therapies that were used in a simultaneous, factorially linked trial. RESULTS: Participants received a median of 5.5 doses
