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 ...

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...

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...

Accumulation of citrulline by microbial arginine metabolism during the alcoholic fermentation of soy sauce.

Citrulline, the major precursor of ethyl carbamate in soy sauce, is an intermediate catabolite of arginine produced by bacteria present in soy sauce moromi mash. Pediococcus acidilactici is responsibl...

Differences in Temperature Changes in Premature Infants During Invasive Procedures in Incubators and Radiant Warmers.

Premature infants tend to lose heat quickly. This loss can be aggravated when they have received an invasive procedure involving a venous puncture. This research uses crossover design by conducting 2 ...

Rehabilitation of sucking and swallowing alterations in premature newborn at the neonatal intensive care unit.

Over the last 20 years, 640 premature newborns with alterations in suction-deglution have been taken care of in the neonatal intensive care unit at the Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez, us...

Prematurity disrupts glomeruli development while prematurity and hyperglycemia lead to altered nephron maturation and increased oxidative stress in newborn baboons.

Premature birth occurs when nephrogenesis is incomplete and has been linked to increased renal pathologies in the adult. Metabolic factors complicating preterm birth may have additional consequences f...

Experience of correcting endothelial dysfunction in children-residents of radioactively contaminated areas by nitric oxide potential donator citrulline.

to determine the effectiveness of citrulline use for correcting endothelial dysfunction in children resi dents of radioactively contaminated areas.

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 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.

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.

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).
