This study was designed to reevaluate the kinetics of vitamin A losses in the plastic intravenous infusion system used clinically in premature infants and to attempt to establish an improved method of delivery that would avoid significant and unpredictable losses. The losses of retinol, retinyl acetate, and retinyl palmitate were assessed in the presence of various concentrations of the emulsifier Tween 20. For a period of more than 24 h and at a concentration of 0.0085% Tween 20, retinol and… CONTINUE READING
