Role of nucleosides and nucleotide mixture in intestinal mucosal growth under total parenteral nutrition.

Abstract

The preventive effect of a mixture of nucleosides and a nucleotide (OG-VI) on total parenteral nutrition (TPN)-associated gut mucosal atrophy was investigated. Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into two groups. The TPN group (n = 11) received a standard TPN diet (250 kcal and 1.78 g nitrogen.kg-1.day-1) for 6 days; the TPN + OG-VI group (n = 10… (More)
