OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of a synthetic surfactant (Exosurf Neonatal, Burroughs-Wellcome Co) and a modified bovine surfactant extract (Survanta, Ross Laboratories) in the treatment of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). DESIGN: Multicenter, randomized trial. SETTING: Thirty-eight neonatal intensive care units participating in the Vermont-Oxford Neonatal Network. PATIENTS: Premature infants (n = 1296) weighing 501 to 1500 g with RDS requiring assisted ventilation with 30% oxygen or more were enrolled within 6 hours of birth...
