Abstract

Plasma amino acids were measured in eight very low birth weight infants (≤ 1000 gm) before and after infusion of parenteral alimentations with Freamine III. Significant elevation in serum threonine, valine, isoleucine, methionine, serine, proline, glycine and omithine was noted after twenty four hours of infusion. On the other hand, significant decreases in taurine and tyrosine levels were noted. Our study suggests that current solution is not optimal for premature neonates and the amount of protein administered during the first week in infants weighing ≤ 1000 gm should be decreased from the recommended 2.5-3.0 gm/kg/day.
