Study Comparing the Safety and Tolerance of SMOFlipid 20% in Long-Term Treatment With Parenteral Nutrition

The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerance of SMOFlipid 20% in comparison to a standard lipid emulsion Intralipid 20% in patients requiring long-term parenteral nutritio...

Intralipid Versus SMOFlipid in HPN Patients

This study will randomize all patients who are new to the Mayo Clinic HPN team to either standard lipid emulsion (Intralipid) or SMOFLipid.

Effects of Lipid Emulsion on the Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Properties of Metoprolol.

The aim of this study is to investigate whether intravenous lipid emulsion is effective in attenuating the clinical effects of a cardioactive drug, exemplified by the beta-blocking agent m...

SMOFlipid and Incidence of BPD in Preterm Infants

Despite many advances in neonatal care in the recent years, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) continues to be the major cause of chronic lung morbidity in infants. The pathogenesis of BPD i...

Digestion of Biopolymer Based Lipid Emulsions

In this randomized, double blind, unbalanced three way crossover trial, four lipid emulsions will be assessed on three study days. The lipid emulsions (LEs) have been engineered so that th...

Intravenous lipid emulsion to treat suspected cocaine toxicosis in a dog.

A 6-month-old puppy was treated for suspected cocaine toxicosis. Supportive care was initiated but clinical signs worsened and treatment with intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) was instituted. Clinical ...

Morbidity Outcomes of Very Low Birth Weight Neonates Receiving Parenteral Nutrition with Fish Oil Enriched Lipid Emulsion or Lipid Emulsion with Soybean Oil: An Observational Study.

Intralipid (Fresenius Kabi) was the most commonly used lipid emulsion in parenteral nutrition (PN), with a 100% soybean oil composition, a low vitamin E content, and a ω-6: ω-3 ratio of 7:1. A recen...

Re-elevation of serum amlodipine level after lipid emulsion therapy in an overdose case.

Amlodipine overdose is common; however, the dose and timing of intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) therapy as a management strategy remain debatable.

Effect of Intravenous Lipid Emulsion on Clozapine Acute Toxicity in Rats.

Many studies have been reported the efficacy of intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) as an antidote on acute lipophilic drug toxicity. Clozapine, highly lipophilic dibenzodiazepine neuroleptics, is an imp...

Growth in Infants and Children With Intestinal Failure-associated Liver Disease Treated With Intravenous Fish Oil.

Infants with intestinal failure (IF) and IF-associated liver disease (IFALD) are at risk for poor somatic growth because of increased metabolic demands, inadequate intake, intestinal malabsorption, ch...

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.

Immunoglobulin preparations used in intravenous infusion, containing primarily IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. They are used to treat a variety of diseases associated with decreased or abnormal immunoglobulin levels including pediatric AIDS; primary HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; SCID; CYTOMEGALOVIRUS infections in transplant recipients, LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC; Kawasaki syndrome, infection in neonates, and IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA.
