Albumin, prealbumin and transferrin values in plasma in the evaluation of energy-protein nutritional state of infants with very low birth weight



Albumin, prealbumin and transferrin values in plasma in the evaluation of energy-protein nutritional state of infants with very low birth weight



Anales Espanoles de Pediatria 43(2): 120-123



During the first 17 weeks of life anthropometric dimensions were estimated, mean protein intake was calculated and plasma albumin, prealbumin and transferrin were estimated weekly for 32 infants of very low birth weight (790 to 1500 g and gestational age 26 to 33 weeks old).
