Direct relationships of estimated birth brain weight(BRW) to birth body weight (BW) ratios (BBR) and of BW< centile for GA(SGA) with blood serum Insulin-like Growth Factor-II(IG2) to blood serum Insulin-like Growth Factor Binding Protein-3 (IB3) ratios (IG2/IB3R), and inverse relations between BW-SDS and birth chest circumference(CC) / BW ratio (i.e., CC through BW; CC/BWR) have been detected by our group in the human newborn(NWB). We evaluated the possibility that CC/BWR could be involved in NWB BBR-IG2/IB3R relationships. NWBs with any among total parenteral nutrition, parenteral nutrition other than dextrose, blood component transfusion, postnatal corticosteroid-, catecholamine- or methylxantine-based treatments, life-threatening disease, diabetes mellitus(DM) or other endocrine diagnosis, malformation, and mother with DM were excluded. 78 included NWBs, all studied before covid-19 pandemic and from conception to study end near sea-level, had complete data for 1) same-day records at one of the first 5 postnatal days(x), 5 days after x(y) and 10 days after x(z) of postnatal age(PNA, unit:day), %O2 in respiratory gases(FiO2; range, x=21-80, y=21-30, z=21-26) and IG2 and IB3 radioimmunoassay(unit=uM/dl), and for 2) gender (SEX), GA(unit:complete week; extremes=28–42), GA<=36 present(PTB, n=46), CC(25th-75th centiles=27-32cm), BW(unit=g; 25th-75th centiles=1926-2942g), and SGA(n=20)(computations; male SEX(n=43), SGA; condition absent=0, condition present=1). BRW (unit=g; 0.037 × head circumference (cm)2.57) and BBR(100 x (BRW/BW)) were calculated according to Lindley - McLennan. SPSS-28 software was used to generate GA-unrelated BBR and CC/BWR standardized residuals(resp. BBRsr and CC/BWRsr)(i.e., Linear regression procedure-Save pushbutton/ Standardized residual checkbox-Continue pushbutton/ regress either BBRsr or CC/BWR on only GA). IG2/IB3R at x-y-z time-points was averaged (i.e., (x+y+z)/3; IG2/IB3RM). IG2/IB3RM normal score according to Van der Waerden(IG2/IB3RM-NS) resulted normally distributed. Spearman rank correlations between the following variable pairs are reported(Rho; significance): BBRsr vs CC/BWRsr(.738; P<.000001), CC/BWR vs IG2/IB3RM(,564; P<.000001), CC/BWR vs FiO2x(.401, P=.0003), FiO2x vs IG2/IB3RM(.451, P<.00005). Partial correlation(pc) coefficient(pcc) of BBRsr pc with outcome IG2/IB3RM-NS in Multiple linear regression (MLR) was significant(t=4.287, P<.00005, pcc=.451) with SEX-GA-BBRsr -FiO2x-PNAx-FiO2x as predictors, but was non-significant with SEX-GA-BBRsr-CC/BWRsr-FiO2x-PNAx-FiO2x as predictors (MLR R2,. 332 /. 440, always significant). CC/BWRsr could be involved in direct relationships between BBRsr and IG2/IB3RM-NS independently of GA and FiO2x in not-life-threatened NWBs.
