The intravenous lipid emulsion (LIP) is a source of oxidants which may stimulate inflammation. Co-administration of parenteral multivitamins (MVP) with LIP prevents lipid peroxidation in light exposed TPN. We hypothesised that this modality of TPN administration affects systemic inflammation, which may be modulated by exposure to oxygen. Premature infants were allocated to 3 TPN regimens; AA: MVP co-administered with amino acid/dextrose exposed to ambient light, LIP provided separately (n=9); LE: MVP co-administered with light-exposed LIP (n=9); LP: MVP co-administered with light-protected LIP (n=8). In LE and LP, amino acid/dextrose was provided separately. Upon reaching full TPN, infants were sampled for IL-6 and IL-8 in plasma and the redox potential of glutathione in whole blood (E, mV). Data were compared (ANOVA) in infants exposed to low (<0.25) vs high (>/=0.25) FiO2. Patients (mean +/-SD: birth weight 797+/-172 g; gestational age 26+/-1 wk) had similar clinical characteristics in TPN groups. Cytokine levels correlated positively (p<0.01) with FiO2 and E. High FiO2 stimulated an increase (p<0.01) in cytokines in AA, while these markers remained unaffected by oxygen in the LE and LP groups. The choice of a TPN admixture may have important consequences on the systemic inflammatory response triggered by an oxidant stress. (200/200) ABBREVIATIONS::
