A randomized controlled trial of early dietary supply of long‐chain polyunsaturated fatty acids and mental development in term infants
The effects of dietary docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supply during infancy on later cognitive development of healthy term infants were evaluated in a randomized clinical trial of infant formula milkExpand

Toward optimizing vision and cognition in term infants by dietary docosahexaenoic and arachidonic acid supplementation: a review of randomized controlled trials.
The question of whether a dietary supply of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) imparts advantages to visual or cognitive development in term infants has been debated for manyExpand

A comprehensive mutation analysis of RP2 and RPGR in a North American cohort of families with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa.
X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous degenerative disease of the retina. At least five loci have been mapped for XLRP; of these, RP2 and RP3 account forExpand

Visual acuity and cognitive outcomes at 4 years of age in a double-blind, randomized trial of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid-supplemented infant formula.
BACKGROUND While there is a large body of data on the effects of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation of infant formula on visual and cognitive maturation during infancy, longtermExpand

Dietary essential fatty acid supply and visual acuity development.
The influence of dietary omega-3 fatty acid supply on visual acuity development was evaluated in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants using visual-evoked potential (VEP) and forced-choiceExpand

Retinal development in very-low-birth-weight infants fed diets differing in omega-3 fatty acids.
Full-field electroretinograms (ERGs) were obtained from very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) neonates to determine whether omega-3 (omega-3) fatty acids are essential for normal human retinal development.Expand

The DIAMOND (DHA Intake And Measurement Of Neural Development) Study: a double-masked, randomized controlled clinical trial of the maturation of infant visual acuity as a function of the dietary
BACKGROUND The range of human milk docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) concentrations worldwide is much broader than the range explored in randomized clinical trials to date. OBJECTIVE The primary objectiveExpand

Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography measures of outer segment layer progression in patients with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa.
IMPORTANCE Determining the annual rate of change in the width of the inner segment ellipsoid zone (EZ; ie, inner/outer segment border) in the context of short-term variability should allow us toExpand

Relationship between tissue levels of S-adenosylmethionine, S-adenylhomocysteine, and transmethylation reactions.
The concentrations of S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet), S-adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy), and various methyltransferases were determined in the cerebrum, cerebellum, and liver of rats during developmentExpand

Visual maturation of term infants fed long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid-supplemented or control formula for 12 mo.
BACKGROUND Several studies found a benefit of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCP) supplementation for visual or mental development, but others found no benefit. Likely contributors toExpand
