Summaries for Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Premature Infants

OMIM : 57 The main cause of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in premature infants is a developmental deficiency of pulmonary surfactant. The frequency of RDS is inversely proportional to gestational age. However, not all infants born prematurely develop RDS, suggesting that there may be susceptibility factors. Because multiple factors can contribute to the pathogenesis of RDS specifically in premature infants, the etiology is considered to be multifactorial (summaries by Ramet et al., 2000; Clark and Clark, 2005). Pathogenic germline mutations in several genes involved in surfactant metabolism, including SFTPB (178640) and SFTPC (178620), can cause clinical features of respiratory distress syndrome in term neonates, children, and adults, disorders referred to as 'surfactant metabolism dysfunction' (see, e.g., SMDP1, 265120). Susceptibility to the development of RDS in premature infants may be associated with polymorphisms in surfactant genes, such as surfactant protein A1 (SFTPA1; 178630), SFTPB, and SFTPC (see MOLECULAR GENETICS).

MalaCards based summary : Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Premature Infants, also known as hyaline membrane disease, is related to adult respiratory distress syndrome and pulmonary immaturity, and has symptoms including dyspnea, respiratory distress and apnea. An important gene associated with Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Premature Infants is BRAF (B-Raf Proto-Oncogene, Serine/Threonine Kinase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are HIV Life Cycle and Diseases of metabolism. The drugs Racepinephrine and Epinephrine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, fetal lung and testes, and related phenotypes are respiratory distress and neonatal respiratory distress

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 74 Respiratory distress syndrome in premature infants: A lung disease affecting usually premature newborn infants. It is characterized by deficient gas exchange, diffuse atelectasis, high- permeability lung edema and fibrin-rich alveolar deposits called 'hyaline membranes'.
