Stable isotope methods are increasingly used in paediatrics for clinical diagnosis and research due to marked improvements in analytical technologies and better availability of suitable tracers. The safety of stable isotopes is of major importance for use in children. Large amounts of deuterium well above the doses applied under clinical conditions may induce adverse effects. In contrast, heavier stable isotopes such as 13C, 15N or 18O do not induce adverse effects even at the highest… CONTINUE READING
