Light exposure and multivitamins are contributing factors to the generation of peroxides in solutions of parenteral nutrition. This article verifies if peroxides infused with parenteral nutrition are of biological significance in neonates. The mechanisms responsible for the generation of peroxides in total parenteral nutrition solutions are reviewed. The consequences of infused peroxides on an index of oxidant stress and on levels of a central antioxidant are evaluated in an animal model. The… CONTINUE READING
