1. Myofibrillar protein degradation has been measured by the rate of 3-methylhistidine excretion in premature infants weighing between 635 g and 1295 g. Analyses were made in conjunction with 1--3 day nitrogen balance studies. 2. In 56 balance studies in 36 infants, total muscle protein breakdown varied between 0.70 and 2.58 (mean 1.05) g day-1 kg-1 body(More)
Antibiotic bonded grafts may improve the treatment results of vascular graft infections. The purpose of this study was to determine the antibiotic and antibiotic concentration needed to be effective against Staphylococcus epidermidis-infected vascular grafts. The efficacy of four antibiotics (minocycline, cefazolin, vancomycin, and rifampin) against S.(More)
34 preterm infants with birthweights < 1200 g were randomly assigned to total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or oral (Milk) feeding regimens for the first 2 weeks after birth. Infants in the TPN group were started on a modified Vamin-based glucose amino-acid infusion and Intralipid. The daily amounts of carbohydrate, amino-acids, and fat infusions were(More)
