Maternal and neonatal plasma transthyretin (prealbumin) concentrations and birth weight of newborn infants



Maternal and neonatal plasma transthyretin (prealbumin) concentrations and birth weight of newborn infants



Biology of the Neonate 68(1): 10-14



This study examined whether or not fetal birth weight of full-term neonates has any relationship with the acute protein nutrition status of the mother. Protein nutrition status was assessed by measuring plasma transthyretin (prealbumin) concentrations. Plasma transthyretin concentrations from the cord blood of 20 neonates (10.9+or-0.5 mg/100 ml) were lower (P<0.000000001) compared with respective maternal concentrations (17.8+or-0.8).
