ABSTRACT: This study assessed the liver vitamin A concentrations at birth in a group of very low birth weight neonates (n = 25) (<1500 g birth weight, <32 wk gestation), dying within 24 h of birth, prior to possiblechanges in vitamin A status induced by postnatal intervention. Serum concentrations of vitamin A and retinol-binding protein were also measured in 16 of these neonates. The mean (± SD) liver vitamin A concentration was 30.0 ± 12.9 Mg/g (range 2.0-49.0 μg/g)- The mean (± SD) serum… CONTINUE READING
