Clinical studies show that docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) supplemented formula improve visual function in preterm infants, however improved fatty acid status is known only for plasma and red blood cells (RBC) since target organs cannot be sampled from humans. Baboons were randomized to one of four groups: Term breast-fed (B); Term formula-fed (T−); Preterm formula-fed (P−); and Preterm DHA/ARA-supplemented formula-fed (P+). The P+ contained 0.61 ± 0.03% DHA and 1.21 ± 0… CONTINUE READING
