A controlled clinical trial was conducted to compare the effect of four different interventions on hyperbilirubinemia in 125 full-term breast-fed infants. Of 1685 term infants who met the inclusion criteria, 126 (7.4%) had a serum bilirubin concentration > or = 291 mumol/L (17 mg/dL). When the bilirubin reached this level, babies were assigned at random to(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare postnatal growth and nutritional deficits after the implementation of two different nutritional strategies in two consecutives periods of time. METHODS An early and aggressive nutritional regimen was used in a cohort of 117 very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. Amino acids were administered at the rate of 1.5 g/kg/day along with 5.6(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of Sn-mesoporphyrin (SnMP), a potent inhibitor of bilirubin production, in: a) moderating the need for phototherapy (PT) in full-term breastfed infants with plasma bilirubin concentrations (PBC) of >/=256.5 micromol/L and </=307.8 micromol/L (>/=15 mg/dL and </=18 mg/dL, respectively) that were reached between >/=48 and(More)
