Phase 1 Intravenous Citrulline for the Prevention of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Preterm Infants

Premature infants are at risk for developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). L-citrulline may decrease that risk, but we do not know the safety or dose of this drug for use in premature ...

Plasma Citrulline Concentration in Tropical Enteropathy

Citrulline is an amino acid produced in the intestine and in the liver, but the liver does not contribute significantly to circulating citrulline concentrations. The intestine is thus the ...

Implementation of a Tool on Alimentary Empowerment in New-born Baby

The alimentation of the premature newborn children is one of main thing concerning of nurses and pediatricians in neonatology. The absence of common tool of evaluation of the children entr...

Effect of L-Citrulline on Vascular Function

The objective of this project is to determine the importance of peripheral vascular function on gait performance in older adults.

Immuno Nutrition by L-citrulline for Critically Ill Patients

The main objective of this study is to demonstrate that the only administration of L-citrulline, can improve immune functions in critically ill patients at high risk of nosocomial infectio...

Educational animation about home care with premature newborn infants.

to elaborate and validate animation on the care of premature newborn infants at home.

Prematurity reduces citrulline-arginine-nitric oxide production and precedes the onset of necrotizing enterocolitis in piglets.

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is associated with low plasma arginine and vascular dysfunction. It is not clear whether low intestinal citrulline production, the precursor for arginine synthesis, occ...

Development in the first year of life of newborns born prematurely - preliminary report.

Introduction: Premature babies account for almost 7% of all newborns and the number of extremely premature infants is increasing. In the European Parliament the problem of premature birth was identifi...

Prolonged furosemide exposure and risk of abnormal newborn hearing screen in premature infants.

At very high doses, furosemide is linked to ototoxicity in adults, but little is known about the risk of hearing loss in premature infants exposed to furosemide.

International working group identifies need for newborn screening for mucopolysaccharidosis type I but states that existing hurdles must be overcome.

Mucopolysaccharidosis type I is a lysosomal storage disorder that can result in significant disease burden, disability and premature death, if left untreated. The aim of this review was to elaborate o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.

A condition of the newborn marked by DYSPNEA with CYANOSIS, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, mostly frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.

A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.

A urea cycle enzyme that catalyzes the formation of orthophosphate and L-citrulline (CITRULLINE) from CARBAMOYL PHOSPHATE and L-ornithine (ORNITHINE). Deficiency of this enzyme may be transmitted as an X-linked trait. EC 2.1.3.3.

Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
