Weimer and colleagues conducted a multicenter cohort study of 304 infants with very low birth weight and postnatal cytomegalovirus infection. They found that cytomegalovirus infections were associated with an increased risk for failing results from a hearing screen and bronchopulmonary dysplasia, an increased postnatal age at discharge, and decreased weight for length at discharge compared with control infants without infection.


Chua and colleagues conducted a cohort study of 2 752 612 adolescents and young adults without cancer. They found that daily opioid dosage, concurrent benzodiazepine use, and extended-release or long-acting opioid use were associated with increased overdose risk.
