BACKGROUND The last trimester of pregnancy is a period of rapid accretion of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, both in the central nervous system and the body as a whole. Human milk contains these fatty acids, whereas some preterm infant formulas do not. Infants fed formulas without these fatty acids have lower plasma and erythrocyte concentrations than infants fed human milk. Preclinical and clinical studies have demonstrated that single-cell sources (algal and fungal) of long-chain… CONTINUE READING
