According to animal studies myoinositol decreases surfactant phosphatidylglycerol and increases phosphatidylinositol. In the present study lung effluent phospholipids and serum myoinositol were analyzed in respiratory distress syndrome (RDS, 19 cases), in other lung disease (6 cases) and in 22 newborn with no lung disease. In addition, myoinositol was studied in amniotic fluid and in serum from umbilical vessels and from maternal vein (15 healthy newborn). There was a significant correlation… CONTINUE READING
