Abstract Perinatal brain injury is a major contributor to perinatal morbidity and mortality, and a considerable number of these children will develop long term neurodevelopmental disabilities. Despite the severe clinical and socio-economic significance and the advances in neonatal care over the past twenty years, no therapy yet exists that effectively prevents or ameliorates detrimental neurodevelopmental effects in cases of perinatal/neonatal brain injury. Our objective is to review recent evidence in relation to the pervading hypothesis for targeting time-dependent molecular and cellular repair mechanisms in the developing brain. In addition we review several potential neuroprotective strategies specific to the developing nervous system, with a focus on erythropoietin (Epo) because of its potential role in protection as well as repair.
