Net nitrogen retention (NNR) and rates of whole-body protein turnover (Q), synthesis, and breakdown (B) were measured in 24 intravenously fed premature infants, birthweight less than 1600 g, at the end of the first week of life. Four regimes were used: Amigenglucose +/- Intralipid; Vamin-glucose +/- Intralipid. Mean protein intake was 2.7 g/kg/day. Mean energy intakes were 68 to 98 kcal/kg/day. Vamin was a better protein source (p less than 0.01), evidence by a higher NNR; 72 +/- 2%, cf. 56… CONTINUE READING
