The aim of the study is to determine mechanisms leading to glutathione deficiency in low birth weight newborn babies. Compared to full term neonates, depletion in this population may be due to a decreased synthesis rate or to an enhanced utilization or a combination of both mechanisms.The protocol is constituted of two steps. The objective of the first step is to quantify the blood concentration of glutathione in the artery and the vein of umbilical cord in full term newborn babies. Objectives of the second step are to determine if the glutathione synthesis rate, measured in vitro, is lower in erythrocytes collected from umbilical cord blood of low weight newborn babies compared to full term newborn babies. In this case, the next objective will be to determine if the adjunction of an excess of cysteine in vitro can restore the glutathione synthesis rate in these cells.

The overall purpose of this research is to test whether adding a supplement to the feeding of extremely low birth weight infant (infants weighing less than 2 pound 2 oz at birth) will help...
To investigate the relationship of birth weight and childhood blood pressure.
This trial is a collaborative study between 5 sites worldwide. A total of 600 research subjects will be enrolled. We will investigate the validity of using 5D Limb Volume software to impro...
Two groups of preterm infants with birth weight equal to or less than 1500 grams will be studied. One group will receive the standard care and the other will receive standard care plus mat...
The management of children with low birth weight is not the same in countries with different resources. The authors assessed the association of birth weight with blood pressure and nutritional status ...
The association between birth weight and later life outcomes is of considerable interest in life-course epidemiology. Research often relies on self-reported measures of birth weight, and its validity ...
Fetal metabolism may be changed by the exposure to maternal factors, and the route to obesity may already set in utero. Cord blood metabolites might predict growth patterns and later obesity. We aimed...
Objective To investigate the obesogenic influence of maternal prepregnancy body mass index (BMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) on infant weight at birth and 12 months postpartum in an Australian...
Babies with a birth weight of less than 2500 grams, irrespective of the period of their gestation are termed as Low Birth Weight (LBW) babies. Despite consistent efforts to improve the quality of mate...
An infant having a birth weight of 2500 gm. (5.5 lb.) or less but INFANT, VERY LOW BIRTH WEIGHT is available for infants having a birth weight of 1500 grams (3.3 lb.) or less.
The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
An infant whose weight at birth is less than 1000 grams (2.2 lbs), regardless of gestational age.

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
