Intragastric Infusions Amino acids and glucose have also been infused, to excess, into the ovine fetal stomach and enteral uptake rates measured. 99 We found GI uptake of amino acids to average 45% of normal umbilical amino acid uptake and GI uptake of glucose to average 42% of normal umbilical glucose uptake. 4 mg/min for glucose were observed.

Those studies that have found only minor developmental or no differences between growth-retarded and appropriately grown newborns have usually been those with a more liberal definition of growth retardation. 6 It is, in fact, the severity and duration of insult that determines subsequent handicap. ll In a recent study, Harvey et al. 7 followed head size in utero, by serial ultrasound measurements and determined the gestation at which head growth began to lag behind normal curves. Slowing of head growth before 26 weeks gestation was found to be associated with lower scores in perceptual performance, motor skills, and general cognitive index, when the children were tested at 5 years of age.
