Parenteral multivitamins (MVP) are linked to the generation of peroxides, which cause oxidant injury in lungs associated with alveolar remodelling linked to lung disease of prematurity. This study was to investigate the relationship between alveolar development and lung oxidant-antioxidant status as modulated by the mode of administration of multivitamins with total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Four groups of guinea pig pups received parenteral nutrition differing by 1) mode of MVP admixture: with amino acid solution (AA-MVP) or lipid emulsion (LIP-MVP); 2) light exposure: TPN exposed (LE) or shielded from light (LP). After 2 or 4 days of TPN, vitamins C and E, 8-isoprostaneF2alpha and alveolarization index were determined in lungs and GSSG/GSH in lungs and blood. Exposure to light and the mode of MVP admixture did not influence vitamin E and isoprostane levels. Blood glutathione redox potential was more oxidized in LE and LIP-MVP groups after 4-day infusions, whereas lung redox potential was more reduced in LE groups. LP and LIP-MVP had a beneficial effect, with higher number of alveoli. Globally, results indicate that in this model, alveolarization and modifications in lung redox potential are two independent events induced by light exposed TPN.
