Recent progress in parenteral nutrition has contributed to improve vital prognosis and to reduce morbidity in patients with severe intestinal failure. Currently, home parenteral nutrition is the only alternative to prolonged hospitalization for those patients. However, long-term parenteral nutrition can result in complications especially in bone, such as osteopenia or osteomalacia, then increasing the risk of fractures. Children are especially at risk ...

The antioxidant system of very low birth weight infants is immature. This immaturity is implicated in the pathogenesis of diseases such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia or retinopathy. The main source of oxidant is oxygen, and parenteral nutrition is contaminated with oxidant. Photoprotection decreases the oxidant load infused with parenteral nutrition. In a preliminary study, photoprotection reduced the frequency of pulmonary bronchodysplasia, increased the ... Read More
