Mucositis is one of the most significant toxicities in cancer patients undergoing cytotoxic treatment. It can have a negative impact on both quality of life and health economics. Severe oral mucositis can contribute to hospitalization, need for narcotic analgesics, total parentral nutrition, suboptimal delivery of anti-neoplastic treatment, and morbidity and mortality. Palifermin, a recombinant derivative of human keratinocyte growth factor, is the first active agent approved by the FDA for the prevention of severe oral mucositis in patients undergoing haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT)...

So we aimed to prove the positive effect of adding intravenous phosphorus to total parentral nutrition (TPN) on calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (PO4) metabolism ofpreterm neonates by measuring bone mineral content (BMC) using DEXA scan. A case-control study was conducted in NICU of Obstetric and Gynecology Hospital of Ain Shams University which is a tertiary care unit in Cairo. Thirty preterm infants were prospectively enrolled in the study divided into 2 groups; 15 preterm infants received TPN with phosphorus supplementation (group 1) and 15 preterm received TPN without phosphorus supplementation (group 2)...

He required total parentral nutrition for 10 days and eventually recovered with oral metronidazole.

Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy is simply a plastic tube, placed in the stomach and passed through both the wall of the stomach and abdomen with the aid of a gastroscope, therefore avoiding the need for a laparotomy to form a gastrostomy. Egeberg proposed surgical gastrostomy in 1837. This was not carried out successfully until 1876 by Verneuil. The procedure, however, requires laparotomy and anaesthesia with its associated risks. The first gastrostomy without the need for a laparotomy is reported to have been performed in 1979 by Gauderer and Ponsky at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, USA...
