Efficacy of a synthetic dipeptide mixture as the source of amino acids for total parenteral nutrition in a subhuman primate (baboon). Plasma concentration, metabolic clearance, and urinary excretion of a series of dipeptides.


To assess the efficacy and safety of oligopeptides as substrates for total parenteral nutrition, we investigated the effects of intravenous infusion of a synthetic dipeptide mixture, as compared with a corresponding amino acid mixture, on a range of parameters of nutrition, metabolism, and organ function in baboons. In all respects the two periods of total… (More)
