Effectiveness of Multicomponent Lipid Emulsion in Preterm Infants Requiring Parenteral Nutrition

2016-01-26 16:08:24 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of a multicomponent lipid emulsion containing 30% soybean oil, 30% medium-chain triglycerides, 25% olive oil, and 15% fish oil with a conventional pure soybean oil lipid emulsion on the incidence of neonatal cholestasis, infant growth, infant morbidity and the biochemical assessment of liver enzymes.


Intravenous lipid emulsions are the major sources of non-protein energy and provision of required essential fatty acids.

The reference lipid emulsion, widely used for many years, is prepared from soybean oil, which is rich in omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and phytosterols that contribute to hepatotoxicity and their metabolites result in pro-inflammatory eicosanoid production.

Existing evidence strongly supports a pathogenetic role of inflammation and oxidative stress on parenteral nutrition associated liver disease.

Subsequent development of lipid emulsions has focused on reducing the amount of soybean oil and replacing it with other oils.Moreover the omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil are metabolized to anti-inflammatory eicosanoids which can prevent inflammatory responses.

A novel multicomponent lipid emulsion may prevent liver injury, improve growth and decrease morbidity in preterm infants.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conditions characterized by abnormal lipid deposition due to disturbance in lipid metabolism, such as hereditary diseases involving lysosomal enzymes required for lipid breakdown. They are classified either by the enzyme defect or by the type of lipid involved.

Protein components on the surface of LIPOPROTEINS. They form a layer surrounding the hydrophobic lipid core. There are several classes of apolipoproteins with each playing a different role in lipid transport and LIPID METABOLISM. These proteins are synthesized mainly in the LIVER and the INTESTINES.

A family of vertebrate and insect lipid droplet associated proteins. They consist of a conserved N-terminal PAT domain (an alpha-helical region of about 110 amino acids), an 11-mer repeat region, and lipid-binding hydrophobic regions or 4-helix bundles near their C-termini. Perilipins transiently or constitutively localize to LIPID DROPLETS in ADIPOCYTES and FOAM CELLS, especially in regions adjacent to the PLASMA MEMBRANE and ENDOPLASMIC RECTICULUM. They are critical for lipid droplet synthesis and homeostasis as well as the regulation of lipid metabolism. Genetic variations in perilipins are associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS; OBESITY; and DIABETES MELLITUS.

Proteins that are covalently-linked to lipid molecules or hydrophobic molecules such as those that contain prenyl groups. The lipid moieties aid in the association of the proteins with CELL MEMBRANES.

Lipid A is the biologically active component of lipopolysaccharides. It shows strong endotoxic activity and exhibits immunogenic properties.
