BACKGROUND/AIMS: Early detection and treatment of protein-energy malnutrition have great clinical significance in patients with liver disease. The aim of study was to evaluate the nutritional status and determine the prevalence of malnutrition in acute and chronic viral hepatitis in Chinese patients, especially in cirrhosis patients. METHODOLOGY: A total of 315 patients were enrolled in this project, 20 patients with acute viral hepatitis, 142 patients with chronic viral hepatitis and 153 patients with posthepatitic liver cirrhosis...

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a frequent complication of premature newborns, particularly very low birth-weight babies (< 1500 g). Undoubtedly multiple mechanisms contribute to the adverse outcomes associated with BPD but oxidative stress is one causative factor. In this issue of Free Radical Biology & Medicine, Lavoie et al describe the increased peroxide generation when the multivitamin solution used for nutritional support, total perenteral nutrition (TPN), is exposed to ambient light. Since the premature newborn has limited antioxidant capacity, this increased oxidative burden from the TPN becomes increasingly significant...

Biochemical function and biological significance of Cu, Zn and Cr are reviewed briefly. During a longterm perenteral nutrition a depletion of the organism of copper and zinc is to be expected. Therefore, in parenteral nutrition, an early substitution of zinc seems to be usefull. Up to now a similar recommendation for copper cannot be given. As many infusion solutions are contaminated with chromium, there is no need to substitute this element in parenteral nutrition.

Exclusive parenteral nutrition and mixed feeding provided by the infusion of a solution of amino-acids, glucose and trace elements by a drip method, result in changes in biological and hormonal balance which have been compared with balance in the child on normal oral feeding. The 24-hour cortisol cycle tends to be attenuated. Blood glucose and, above all, blood insulin levels show major variations. Plasma free fatty acid levels, stable in exclusive parenteral nutrition, in general vary with mixed nutrition...
