Abstract

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a complex inflammatory necrosis of the neonatal intestine, which is likely to require a multipronged approach for prevention and treatment. Despite identifying and defining NEC as a disease entity several decades back, no major progress has been made toward its early identification, treatment, or prevention. This article reviews the latest research strategies that are currently ongoing for early diagnosis and monitoring and prevention of the disease.
