Omegaven IV lipid emulsion administration for infants with life threatening parenteral nutrition associated liver disease
Drug: Omegaven IV lipid emulsion
For infants meeting inclusion criteria and whose guardians consent to participation, Omegaven will be initiated at the dose of 0.5gram/kg/day and is infused over 24 hours for 1-2 days and then advanced to 1 gram/kg/day. Omegaven will be infused intravenously through a central or peripheral catheter alone or in conjunction with parenteral nutrition.
Other Name: Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- Reduction of direct serum bilirubin level (mg/dL) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months from the completion of the study. ]For effectiveness endpoint, the allowable minimum time interval between serial direct bilirubin measurements that will determine reversal of cholestasis is 2 consecutive measurements of direct bilirubin < or = to 2mg/dL obtained at least 2 weeks apart.
- Essential fatty acid profile [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days from therapy completion ]Previous studies have found no association between Omegaven administration and essential fatty acid deficiency. Due to theoretical concern for developing fatty acid deficiency with low dose Omegaven administration, these levels will be followed during Omegaven therapy.
