A safe and efficacious preventive strategy in the high-risk surgical neonate: cycled total parenteral nutrition.

Hepatic dysfunction in patients reliant on total parenteral nutrition (TPN) may benefit from cycled TPN. A concern for neonatal hypoglycemia has limited the use of cycled TPN in neonates less than 1 w...

Role of heat shock protein and cytokine expression as markers of clinical outcomes in Glutamine-supplemented parenteral nutrition in surgical ICU patients.

Nutrients, such as glutamine (GLN), have been shown to effect levels of a family of protective proteins termed heat shock proteins (HSPs) in experimental and clinical critical illness. HSPs are believ...
