Nutrition is a key to improving health status and should be seen as the bedrock on which good neonatal care can be delivered. Auxological measures are the most commonly measured nutritionally related outcomes in neonatal care. However, their relationship to longer-term outcomes remains to be determined. In addition, a range of other short- and medium-term outcomes and biomarkers deserve consideration when assessing the effects of nutritional exposures. Nutritional interventions are complex and assessing their effects is not straightforward.

96, 97 In the future, it might be possible to predict later life risks of health and disease phenotype based on epigenetic modifications present at the time of initial hospital discharge. These techniques using samples from preterm babies only identify biomarkers that discriminate the infants at the time of sampling, based on their known phenotype. How these biomarkers may project as predictors of future outcome is difficult to determine, and requires work from both ends, with tandem studies to identify biomarkers in children and adults born preterm, with a range of long-term outcomes.
