It might be related to protein-energy malnutrition which is a common feature of cystic fibrosis or to some specific defects in fatty acid metabolism. To avoid the deleterious effects of protein-energy malnutrition, this study assesses the plasma phospholipid fatty acid pattern in well nourished young cystic fibrosis subjects. Sixteen cystic fibrosis subjects aged 6.6–20.0 years were… CONTINUE READING
