Abstract

Recent researches on the possible role of kinins as mediators of circulatory changes in the newborn infant (Melmon and co-workers, 1968) have led us to re-examine the behaviour of kininogen in the newborn during the first hours (24 hrs) of life in relation to a possible condition of distress of the newborn, general distress involving respiratory and circulatory functions.
