The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome offers a prevention program, the Period of Purple Crying, which can help parents and other caregivers understand crying in healthy infants and how to handle it. Another method that will help may be the’five S’s’ strategy, which stands for: Shushing Side/stomach positioning Sucking . Swaddling . Swinging gently . If a baby in your care won’t end crying, you may also try the following: Make certain the baby’s fundamental needs are met . Check for signs of illness, want fever or swollen gums. Rock or walk with the baby. Sing or talk to the baby. Offer the baby a pacifier or a noisy toy. Take the baby for a ride in a stroller or strapped right into a young child safety seat in the car.Molecular response was assessed for BCR-ABL by way of RQ-PCR at baseline, monthly for three months, and every three months thereafter. Conventional bone marrow cytogenetic analyses had been performed at baseline and at weeks 6, 12, 18, and 24. Complete blood counts were measured at baseline; at weeks 1, 2, and 4; regular until month 6; and every 3 months until research completion thereafter. End Points The primary efficacy end point was the rate of major molecular response at 12 months, defined as a BCR-ABL transcript degree of 0.1 percent or less in peripheral bloodstream on RQ-PCR assay, as expressed on the International Level.12-16 This corresponds to a reduction of 3 log10 copies or even more in BCR-ABL transcripts, as compared with the standardized baseline established in IRIS.12 Patients who did not undergo RQ-PCR evaluation at 12 weeks were considered to have had no response.
