A prospective, randomized, double-blind trial of the nutritional effects of branched chain modified amino acid solutions was undertaken in 23 surgical patients within 24 hours of the onset of major general surgery, polytrauma, or sepsis. The effects were evaluated in the absence of abnormalities of oxygen transport and perfusion in an isocaloric/isonitrogenous setting where the major difference between the groups was the amount of branched chain amino acids received. Both groups received… CONTINUE READING
