Parenteral Nutrition (PN) provides life sustaining support where gastrointestinal nutrition is inadequate due to disease or prematurity. Intravenous lipid emulsions (IVLEs) form a staple part of PN. Whilst the physical stability of IVLE's is relatively well known and quantified, chemical stability is an area where little testing has occurred. We report a new sensitive method for the monitoring of selected triglycerides present within two IVLEs and the detection and quantification of the peroxidation product 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE) using HPLC with in-line UV and charged aerosol detection (CAD)...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Systemic inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), resulting in depletion of lean body mass (LBM) and muscle mass. Both frequent exacerbation of COPD and low LBM are associated with poor prognosis. This study aimed to evaluate whether supplementation of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) prevents depletion of LBM and muscle mass in hospitalized patients with exacerbation of COPD. METHODS: This was a prospective randomized controlled trial, conducted between November 2014 and October 2017...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Malnutrition is highly prevalent in chronic liver disease (CLD) due to alterations in nutrient utilization, malabsorption and poor intake. Low serum concentrations of branched chain amino acids (BCAA) in the presence of elevated aromatic acid concentrations is commonly observed in adult and children with liver cirrhosis and is associated with malnutrition and other adverse patient outcomes. The efficacy of BCAA supplementation has not been well established in adults and children with CLD...

Diarrhoea therapies in general include a number of approaches (depending on local practise and the cause of the diarrhoea) aimed at: (i) removing the cause (e.g. lactose in the diet); (ii) treating the cause of infection if present (e.g. antibiotics); (iii) reducing the effect of the cause (e.g. adsorbent); (iv) depressing gastric motility and secretions (e.g. various drugs); (v) probiotic bacteria with perhaps prebiotic energy sources and most importantly of all (vi) rehydration using rehydration salt solutions (oral rehydration therapy, ORT, using oral rehydration solutions, ORS)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Abdominal obesity is associated with adverse health implications. However, the assessment of abdominal adiposity is either indirect, like in the case of waist circumference measurement, or difficult in daily clinical practice, like in the case of using reference methods such as computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, etc. The aim of the current study was to develop and validate, using DXA as reference method, two easy and simple to use protocols, that estimate abdominal fat mass percentage (%AFM) in Greek females and males respectively, based on simple anthropometric measurements...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Albumin and C reactive protein (CRP) concentrations are associated with the loss of lean body mass in the elderly. However, it remains to be ascertained whether these parameters are associated with pre-sarcopenia of chronic renal failure adult's patients undergoing replacement therapy. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of pre-sarcopenia and it association with serum albumin and CRP concentrations in adult patients. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted enrolling hemodialysis patients...

Intestinal failure associated liver disease (IFALD) is frequent problem encountered when managing patients receiving parenteral nutrition (PN). Its occurrence is often multifactorial and modification of these factors is vital for the management of such hepatic dysfunction. The use of novel lipid preparations can form part of this management strategy. We present a case whereby such modification of contributing factors, including lipid preparations, led to improvements in IFALD and reversal of hepatic fibrosis...

BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammation is a process sustained by the augmentation of circulating cytokines level and C-reactive protein (CRP). Adipocytes and adipose tissue infiltration with inflammatory cells, are an important source of adipokines production, and their expansion due to overnutrition is responsible for increased in inflammation. The reduction of body fat following both controlled diets or gastric surgery can be favorable in the reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines. METHODS: A systematic literature search performed using PubMed, Google Scholar and Cochrane Library database screened for clinical and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) using the combination of the following keywords: "weight loss, inflammation," "restricted diet, anti-inflammatory effect...
