Antioxidants (Vitamin E and G [VE, VC]), uric acid (UA), bilirubin (Bili), sulfhydryl groups (SH) work synergistically and thus HM may have advantages over FF in protecting babies from oxygen toxicity. We measured (day 0, 3, 7, 14, 21) plasma protein fluorescence ratio (PF) as an index of free radical damage, the various antioxidants, and, using a new(More)
