Low plasma zinc concentrations have been reported in approximately 30% of young infants with cystic fibrosis identified by newborn screening. The objective of this study was to examine zinc homeostasis in this population by application of stable isotope methodology. Fifteen infants with cystic fibrosis (9 male, 6 female; 7 breast-fed, 8 formula-fed) were studied at a mean (±SD) age of 1.8 ± 0.7 mo. On d 1, 70Zn was administered intravenously, and 67Zn was quantitatively administered with all… CONTINUE READING
