VLBW fed banked HBM are at risk from P depletion with hypercalciuria and high plasma 1.25 OHD concentration. The aim of this study was to deter mine the dose of P required to reduce urinary Ca (UCa) excretion. In addition, its effects on serum immunoreactive parathyroid hormon (iPTH) was also controlled.
