    BACKGROUND: At discharge from neonatal units, many preterm infants are vulnerable to preprandial hypoglycemia due to insufficient liver glucose production. In most preterm infants, hepatic glucose-6-phosphatase activity (the terminal step of liver glucose production) remains abnormally low...

    Obesity is a major risk factor for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Adipose tissue is now considered to be an active endocrine organ that secretes various adipokines such as adiponectin, leptin, resist in, tumour necrosis factor-α, and interleukin-6. Recent studies have shown that...

    Treatment with activated protein C has been shown to reduce mortality in adult patients with severe sepsis but also to increase risk of bleeding. In patients with predisposition to bleeding, as in preterm infants, the inactivated form of protein C could serve as a safe therapeutic option. We...
