End-stage renal disease is often accompanied by malnutrition due to less appetite, metabolic changes or both. Human immunodeficiency virus-infection may exacerbate the state of malnutrition. In a pilot study, we recruit both HIV invected and non-infected patients on hemodialysis. Non-HIV patients will be randomized to peroral supplemental nutrition or no peroral supplemental nutrition. All HIV patients will receive peroral supplemental nutrition. The ... Read More

Parenteral nutrition (PN) is part of supportive care in oncology Pediatric when the patient's nutritional status justifies it and enteral is impossible. In the literature, hepatotoxicity, cholestasis type, standard emulsions of soy oil-based (type Médialipide®) is described in the context of a long-term PN especially in premature infants. It results in an increase in gammaGT. The most recent use of lipid emulsions containing Omega 3 (Smoflipid), was studied ... Read More
