Abstract

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most frequent chronic lung disease in preterm newborn infants.

The aim of this study is to identify genetic variants contributing to BPD development using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology. We prospectively evaluated 378 premature newborn infants with a gestational age
