Background and aims:
Old patients seldom reach energy requirements. The effects of an oleic-acid rich formula on energy intake and appetite were studied.
Methods: Recently admitted geriatric patients (n=71), likely to stay more than 1 week were randomised to receive a fat emulsion (Calogen, intervention group (IG)) or to standard care (control group (CG)). Thirty ml of the emulsion were given 3 times daily, i.e. 420 kcal, and was distributed at the regular medication rounds. Food intake and self-rated appetite were registered 2-3 days after admission and on day 8 or the day prior to discharge. Nutritional risk screening (NRS) 2002 and serum lipids and fatty acid profiles were analysed.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This prospective observational study seeks to demonstrate the ability to meet nutritional needs of a calorically dense enteral formula in critically ill patients.
To assess the frequency and nature of adverse events in infants fed a free amino acid based infant formula.
In this study, the investigators will vary the proportions of high- and low-energy-dense foods served to preschool children at all meals and snacks during three 5-day periods. In the three...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of high sn-2 palmitic acid based infant formula on intestinal parameters in term formula fed infants.
The purpose of this randomized controlled study using a crossover design is to investigate the main effect of portion size and food type (low-energy dense vs. high-energy dense) on caloric...
Dietary oleic acid may prevent pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) by reducing hyperinsulinaemia which can otherwise promote DNA damage and tumour growth. Results from previous epidemiological stud...
Once assumed only to be a waste product of anaerobe glycolytic activity, lactate is now recognized as an energy source in skeletal muscles. While lactate metabolism has been extensively studied in viv...
(Kakadu plum) is a native Australian fruit. Industrial processing of fruits into puree generates seeds as a by-product, which are generally discarded. The aim of our present study was to process the ...
The bioavailability of ivermectin is modulated by lipid-based formulations and membrane efflux transporters such as Breast Cancer Resistance Protein and P-glycoprotein (BCRP and P-gp). We have investi...
The purpose of this Clinical Practice Guideline is to provide an approach for optimal nutritional support in the postinjury period for those injured in combat. Indications and contraindications for en...
A colorless, syrupy, strongly acidic liquid that can form detergents with oleic acid.
An unsaturated fatty acid that is the most widely distributed and abundant fatty acid in nature. It is used commercially in the preparation of oleates and lotions, and as a pharmaceutical solvent. (Stedman, 26th ed)
An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from excessive intake of nutrients. Generally, overnutrition generates an energy imbalance between food consumption and energy expenditure leading to disorders such as OBESITY.
Fats containing one or more double bonds, as from oleic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid.
An analytical transmission electron microscopy method using an electron microscope fitted with an energy filtering lens. The method is based on the principle that some of the ELECTRONS passing through the specimen will lose energy when they ionize inner shell electrons of the atoms in the specimen. The amount of energy loss is dependent upon the element. Analysis of the energy loss spectrum (ELECTRON ENERGY-LOSS SPECTROSCOPY) reveals the elemental composition of a specimen. It is used analytically and quantitatively to determine which, how much of, and where specific ELEMENTS are in a sample. For example, it is used for elemental mapping of PHOSPHORUS to trace the strands of NUCLEIC ACIDS in nucleoprotein complexes.
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
