Absorption of dietary calcium was evaluated with the extrinsic tag approach and stable isotope methodology in growing premature infants. Fractional absorption of a bolus dose of 46Ca was determined on 16 occasions in 13 premature infants (birth weight 1135 +/- 40 g, gestational age 29.5 +/- 0.4 wk, mean +/- SE) and was found to be 84.4 +/- 2.2%. Fractional(More)
Dietary zinc bioavailability was evaluated with the extrinsic tag approach of stable isotope enrichment technology in growing premature infants. The fractional absorption of one dose of 70Zn was determined on 16 occasions in 13 premature infants (birth weight 1135 +/- 40 g, gestational age 29.5 +/- 0.4 wk, mean +/- SE) and was found to be 64.9 +/- 2.7%.

Metoclopramide treatment has been shown to augment milk production by stimulating prolactin secretion in women in whom lactational insufficiency develops after a full-term pregnancy. The effect of metoclopramide therapy in 23 women who were delivered of premature infants (birth weight 1,314 +/- 115 g, gestational age 30.4 +/- 0.7 weeks) and who were having(More)
The total lipid content and fatty acid composition of preterm human colostrum and milk were analyzed from aliquots of 24-h collections of colostrum, transitional milk, and mature milk obtained from 21 women who had delivered premature infants with a mean birth weight of 1,049 +/- 38 g (mean +/- SEM) and a mean gestational age of 29 +/- 0.4 weeks. The total(More)
Every property problem spans three distinct dimensions: number of owners, scope of each owner’s dominion, and asset design. These three basic dimensions can be traced back to Blackstone’s famous encapsulation of property law as the “sole and despotic dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world, in total exclusion of the(More)
