CEU Course Description

Nutritional supplementation with polyunsaturated fatty acids is important in preterm infants’ neurodevelopment, but it is not known if the omega-6 / omega-3 ratio affects this process.  This CEU course investigates the effects of a balanced contribution of arachidonic acid in very preterm newborns fed with formula milk.

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Explain why very-low-birth-weight and very preterm infants are particularly vulnerable to LCPUFAs deficiency.
  2. Investigate which fatty acids are required for the formation of non-myelinated cell membranes in the central nervous system.
  3. Examine in which tissue arachidonic acid is one of the most abundant fatty acids.
  4. Elucidate which LCPUFA in breast milk is the most biologically important.
  5. Identify the time period when long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids are transferred from mother to fetus.
  6. Provide the ratio of AA to DHA in human milk.
