Objective Fetal calprotectin levels increase in the early stages of necrotizing enterocolitis. Although the effects of several factors on fetal calprotectin have been studied, the effect of phototherapy is not known. In this study, we analyzed the effect of phototherapy on fetal calprotectin levels.
