STUDY DESIGN Six pregnant sheep (134.5 2.3 days after conception) were infused for 12 hours overnight with an amino acid solution. Uterine and umbilical blood flows were measured with the ethanol steady-state diffusion technique before (control) and during (experimental) infusion. Plasma amino acid… CONTINUE READING
