Positive results of the clinical study NEUROSIS

The clinical study NEUROSIS is an international multicentre clinical study which assessed the impact of inhaled budesonide on bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in preterm infants. It was conducted with the support and cooperation of Chiesi by a European consortium of experienced neonatologists, funded by the European Union, according to its 7th Framework program.

For the first time an inhaled corticosteroid was tested on a population of 850 preterm infants at risk for bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

The treatment with budesonide significantly reduced the frequency of appearance of BDP, with a good safety profile for the infants.

Infants are monitored until the age of 22 months, to assess the long term consequences of budesonide treatment.
