    Sammanfattning : A large amount of non-protein nitrogen, in the form of urea and ammonium, is present in human breastmilk; however its physiological role in the infant is as yet not fully understood. It has been hypothesized that an insufficient enteric metabolism of urea could play a role in the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Sudden infant death syndrome : A medico-legal study of related cardiovascular, toxilogical and genetic findings

    Författare :Petra Råsten Almqvist; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cardiovascular malformation; Cotinine; Heart weight; mtDNA; Myocarditis; Nicotine; SIDS;

    Sammanfattning : The present medico-legal investigation of the deaths of infants less than one year of age was designed to enhance our understanding of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Special emphasis was placed on the significance of cardiovascular pathology (including heart weight, malformations and myocarditis); exposure to nicotine; and mutations and/or polymorphisms in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).
