The docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) status of preterm infants (less than 32 wk gestation) was measured as the molar percent of DHA in individual red blood cell phospholipids: 1) in cord venous blood immediately following delivery, 2) after infants were receiving greater than 60 kcal X kg X day of energy from oral-gastric feedings, and 3) at a mean of 7 wk later. Infants on full feeding received either preterm human milk or formula. The DHA concentration of all phospholipid classes declined between… CONTINUE READING
