Neonates with congenital/acquired gastrointestinal disorders are at high risk for Parenteral Nutrition Associated Cholestasis (PNAC). Besides enteral nutrition, standard therapies to prevent and treat PNAC have been limited and marginal. Recently, the dose and composition of standard intravenous fat emulsions have implicated in the development and progression of PNAC. In this study, neonates with congenital/acquired gastrointestinal disorders will be ... Read More

This study aims to analyse the effect of two total parenteral nutrition diets with lipid emulsions of different compositions on the incidence of nosocomial infection in critical patients. One diet will contain an MCT/LCT emulsion concentrated to 20% (50:50 ratio) and the other will comprise an MCT/LCT/fish oil emulsion (50:40:10 ratio). The secondary objective of this study is to analyse mortality in hospital and up to 6 months of discharge. Read More

A randomized, parallel-group, pilot study comparing the effect of the early addition of intravenous protein to enteral feeding as tolerated versus enteral feedings as tolerated alone immediately post traumatic injury. Primary: To determine that early and adequate nutritional support will improve protein economy in the first week post -injury as measured by nitrogen balance. We hypothesize that an improvement in nitrogen balance with early maximized protein ... Read More
