Thirty infants were randomly assigned to receive either 3 mL of MVI-Pediatric supplement (PAR3 group, parenterally fed) or 2 mL (PAR2 group, parenterally fed). For the first week, 100% received total parenteral nutrition (TPN), 50% by the second, and less than 33% by the third. Eighteen control infants received enteral feeds of infant formula.

BACKGROUND Carbon monoxide (CO) has been detected within anaesthesia breathing systems. One potential source in this setting is exhaled endogenous CO. We hypothesized that CO is re-breathed during low-flow anaesthesia (LFA) in infants and children. METHODS Twenty children (age 2 months-7 yr) undergoing general anaesthesia were evaluated in a prospective(More)
The purpose of the present study was to monitor the vitamin status of 14 low-birth-weight (LBW) infants (< 1,750 g birth weight) at 2 weeks and an additional four infants at 3 weeks who were receiving an enteral formula providing 247 micrograms/100 kcal thiamine, 617 micrograms/100 kcal riboflavin, 37 micrograms/100 kcal folate, and 0.55 micrograms/100 kcal(More)
The hydrolysis of chylomicrons enriched in long-chain n-3 fatty acids by cardiac lipoprotein lipase was studied. In 60 min, 24.8% of the triacylglycerol fatty acids were released as free fatty acids. The fatty acids were hydrolyzed at different rates. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid, 22:6n-3) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid, 20:5n-3) were released at rates(More)
The murine B-cell lymphoma 38C13 model was used to study the radiobiological effect of 13ll-monoclonal antibody (MAB) therapy com pared with dose equivalent external beam irradiation. Continuous expo nentially decreasing low dose rate (LDR) -y-irradiation, and multiply fractionated (MF) \-irradiation were compared with dose equivalent I31IMAH. The relative(More)
