The N-glycine constant infusion method was used to study protein turnover in normal adults and perioperative patients. The protein turnover rate (Q), synthetic rate (S) and catabolic rate (C) were derived according to Picou's two-pool system model, and the "end-product averaging technique" showed the 15N-glycine constant infusion method to be reliable, with a reproducibility of +/-5.1%. This measurement can be repeated after a short period, so it should be useful for surgical nutrition study… CONTINUE READING
