Omegaven

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Omegaven is a fatty acid emulsion produced by Fresenius Kabi. It is used for total parenteral nutrition (feeding directly into a venous catheter), e.g. in short bowel syndrome. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

It has gained popularity in children in preference to the more commonly used Intralipid after case reports that it reduced the risk of liver damage.[1]

A recent study indicated that the use of Omegaven may be an appropriate intervention strategy for newborns with a very low birth weight, gastrochisis, and jejunal atresia.[2]

It is currently undergoing a clinical trial at National Taiwan University Hospital.[3]

Although the use of Omegaven in children in the United States is experimental, the use of it in adults in Europe is less controversial.[4] In European studies, Omegaven has been associated with a reduction in psoriasis, when contrasted to administration of omega-6 fatty acid Lipoven.[5] Omegaven has also been associated with reduced mortality and antibiotic use during hospital stays.[6]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
