BACKGROUND We have previously reported that medium-chain triglyceride (MCT)-containing lipid emulsions, contrary to long-chain triglyceride (LCT) emulsions, activate human neutrophils. This activation might result from functional alterations in cellular membranes induced by MCT. Membrane fluidity is such a feature with known clinical implications and can be assessed by fluorescence polarization measurements. This study was performed to investigate whether exposure to various emulsions… CONTINUE READING
