What is NEO-CIRC?

Neo-Circ Consortium


- will focus on the use of the drug dobutamine for the treatment of circulatory failure in the first two days after birth

- sustained low blood pressure and impaired blood flow to organs, during this period, can cause brain injury resulting in poor neurodevelopmental outcomes

- neurodevelopmental disorders are associated with mental, emotional and physical disorders of varying severity

- there is strong evidence that the use of dobutamine will reduce the incidence of these disabilities
