To determine whether serum prealbumin would be useful in identifying adequacy of protein and calorie intake in premature infants, 17 infants between 26 and 33 weeks gestational age were studied throughout hospitalization. Serial anthropometric measurements, nutritional intake, and serum prealbumin concentrations were correlated. When mean intake of calories(More)
MAC/HC has been a useful anthropometric measure of malnutrition in older infants. Since standards have not been established for term or preterm neonates, we measured MAC/HC on day 3 of life in 104 term and 100 preterm infants (EGA 37.5-43 and 26-37 wks). A strong correlation between increasing gestational age and MAC/HC was found defining a standard curve(More)
Of 170 sickle cell patients 2-12 years old, 22% had height and/or weight <5%ile. Growth and nutrition studies were done on 20 growth-retarded patients (GR) and 20 growth-normal patients (GN) matched for age, sex, hemoglobin disorder, and hematologic values. Selected tests were done on 10 control patients (C). Bone age was delayed in 5/16 GR and 5/12 GN.(More)
Prealbumin (PA) and retinol-binding protein (RBP), hepatically synthesized transport proteins for vitamin A, are useful markers of nutritional protein/calorie adequacy. To confirm the fetal liver as the source of PA synthesis, we determined PA levels in 9 cord arterial and/or venous sera samples and in paired maternal sera at birth.Prealbumin and RBP(More)
The influence of NEC on growth and gastrointestinal (GI) function, was determined at 1 year of age in 9 premature infants (Mean±SD birthweight=1.45±.33 kg and gestational age=31.4±3 wks.) who had radiologically confirmed NEC. Seven of these infants were treated medically and 2 required surgery, (1 for prox. jejunal resection; 1 for post NEC colonic(More)
