Lipids for parenteral nutrition in neonates
Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition & Metabolic Care, 02/11/2011
Deshpande G et al. – Since the first soybean oil–based lipid emulsions were introduced 50 years ago, progress has been made in understanding the composition, dose and clinical effects of parenteral lipids in neonatal patients. However there is a paucity of data in terms of definitive head–to–head trials of different novel lipid emulsions evaluating short–term as well as long–term clinically important outcomes including neurodevelopment.
