OBJECTIVE To determine vitamin A and vitamin E status in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants at the time of birth (TB), at the time of full feeding (TFF) and at term postmenstrual age (TT). STUDY DESIGN An observational study was conducted in VLBW infants. Plasma retinol and α-tocopherol levels were measured at TB, TFF and TT. Multivitamin(More)
OBJECTIVE Malabsorption and deficiency of vitamin E are common consequences of chronic cholestasis. The objective of this study was to determine vitamin E status by using plasma vitamin E/total lipid ratio (E/L) in children with cholestasis during supplementation with 20 IU/kg/day and 100 IU/kg/day of oral vitamin E capsule, and 50 IU/kg/day of cold water(More)
Vitamin E and selenium statuses were studied in thalassemic children in comparison with 16 normal controls. Twelve Hb H disease, 46 beta-thal/Hb E and 7 beta-thal major patients had lower plasma vitamin E level than controls but plasma vitamin E/total lipids ratio of Hb H disease subjects was not different from normal. Twelve Hb H disease and 33(More)
BACKGROUND Premature infants are at risk of vitamin A deficiency due to inadequate transplacental transport, inadequate storage and increased tissue utilization. Previous studies reported a significant decrease in serum vitamin A levels in premature infants at birth compared to those of full term infants. OBJECTIVE To determine serial changes of plasma(More)
This preliminary investigation determined the plasma amino acid concentrations in 136 healthy subjects. The subjects were divided into four groups according to their ages: gr 1; 1-3 years, gr 2; 4-11 years, gr 3; 12-19 years and gr 4; 20-45 years. Comparing among the groups, the results showed that in younger children (age 1-3 years) the essential amino(More)
