About this title


This volume highlights the clinical implications of findings on the biochemistry, metabolism, and physiological functions of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs). Experts examine the role of LCPUFAs in mediating brain and retinal development, immunomodulation, and other physiological processes and explore the relationship between essential fatty acid balance and cystic fibrosis, behaviour problems, chronic diseases, atopic dermatitis, gynaecological and reproductive disorders, and distrubances of lipoprotein metabolism. Full consideration is given to the intake, digestion, absorption, and metabolism of LCPUFAs in newborn infants and the special problems of premature infants and infants with peroxisomal disorders. The book also addresses practical issues concerning sources and uses of dietary LCPUFAs, particularly in relation to infant feeding.
