Plasma vitamin K1 and proteins induced by vitamin K absence (PIVKA) were assayed simultaneously 1–4 days and 29–35 days after delivery in three groups of infants: breast-fed not receiving vitamin K at birth (n=12), bottle-fed without vitamin K administration at birth (n=7) and breast-fed receiving 1 mg vitamin K1 administered by intramuscular injection at birth (n=13). The bottle-fed infants had a significantly higher vitamin K1 plasma level than breast-fed infants who did not receive vitamin… CONTINUE READING
