Dietary protein energy supplementation of pregnant Asian mothers at Sorrento, Birmingham. II: Selective during third trimester only.
Unselective dietary protein energy supplementation of Asian mothers at Sorrento Maternity Hospital did not enhance intrauterine growth. The effect of selective supplementation was therefore studied.Expand

Diet-related reference values for plasma amino acids in newborns measured by reversed-phase HPLC.
We have measured by reversed-phase HPLC concentrations of amino acids in plasma in groups of 80 normal appropriate-weight term babies fed from birth either a casein formula (WhiteCap SMA, n = 26), aExpand

ANTHROPOMETRIC AND BIOCHEMICAL CHANGES DURING PREGNANCY IN ASIAN AND EUROPEAN MOTHERS HAVING LIGHT FOR GESTATIONAL AGE BABIES
An assessment of nutritional status using anthropometric and biochemical measurements was made during pregnancy in 8 European and 15 Asian women who produced babies which were light for gestationalExpand

ANTHROPOMETRIC AND BIOCHEMICAL CHANGES DURING PREGNANCY IN ASIAN AND EUROPEAN MOTHERS HAVING WELL GROWN BABIES
At this hospital, about a third of all mothers are Asian. Although generally they have smaller and lighter babies, many Asian mothers achieve similar standards of intrauterine growth to the EuropeanExpand

Dietary protein energy supplementation of pregnant Asian mothers at Sorrento, Birmingham. I: Unselective during second and third trimesters.
At Sorrento Maternity Hospital Asian mothers whose babies had grown poorly in utero had anthropometric and biochemical evidence suggesting an inadequate nutritional state. To test this hypothesisExpand

Diet and faecal flora in the newborn: lactoferrin.
The faecal flora of breast fed babies differs from that of bottle fed babies. We have shown that the use of a whey predominant formula rather than a casein predominant one induced a faecal floraExpand

Lactoferrin and Iron Absorption in Newborn Infants
ABSTRACT. Results from experiments in this laboratory using 59Fe suggest that bovine lactoferrin (Lf) has no effect on iron absorption in rats. A study was therefore carried out in newborn infants toExpand

Diet and faecal flora in the newborn: casein and whey proteins.
Despite the extensive modifications of cows' milk to make an infant formula resemble human breast milk, we showed in a previous study that the faecal flora of breast fed babies still differsExpand
