The response of blood glucose, ketones, and plasma nonesterified fatty acids to fasting and epinephrine injection in infants and children

, : The response of blood glucose, ketones, and plasma nonesterified fatty acids to fasting and epinephrine injection in infants and children. Journal of Pediatrics 59: 836-847

The children studied were 181 in the age groups 16 to 36 h, 2 to 6 days, 1 week to 6 months, 7 months to 4 years and 4 to 12 years. Fasting was for 24 h in all groups except the youngest infants, who had fasted from birth. Infants under 36 h and children over 4 years had significantly lower levels of ketones in the blood after a fast than had children of intermediate ages. The highest level was in the third group.

Results of tests showed that all 4 species grew well on alkaline soil, soil with a high salt content and soil poor in NPK. The most important factor affecting their growth was the m.c. of the soil. The m.c. suitable for growth was 1.0-1.5% for H....

These lesions represent a unique class of oxidative DNA lesions in that they are repaired by the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway but...
