Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evidence for immunoregulatory effect of lipid emulsion products. [ Time Frame: 1-5 days after treatment provided ]

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: November 2008
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: SMOFlipid Drug: lipid emulsion for TPN
1-2 g lipid emulsion /kgBW-day, for consecutive 5 days
Other Name: SMOFlipid 20%
Active Comparator: Lipovenoes MCT Drug: lipid emulsion for TPN
1-2 g lipid emulsion /kgBW-day, for consecutive 5 days
Other Name: SMOFlipid 20%

Detailed Description:
The comparison of two lipid emulsion product will be performed. Patients who plan to accept gastrectomy will be consider for trial and signed content will be obtained. If the patient needs total parenteral nutrition (TPN) treatment after surgery for at least 5 days and meets all criteria, then he/she will be enrolled and randomized to ether of the groups, SMOFlipid or Lipovenoes MCT. During the treatment period, efficacy variables and safety variables will be measured. Life quality evaluation will also be performed through questionnaires collection.
