Predicting Weight Using Postmenstrual Age

Objectives: To describe the pattern and variability of body weight with postmenstrual age (PMA) using nonlinear mixed effect modeling (NONMEM) to create a single mathematical function that can be used from prematurity to adulthood. Background: Postmenstrual age has been shown to predict functional properties of humans such as glomerular filtration rate and drug clearance.  Widely used growth […]
