Population Were study patients pediatric age groups between newborn to 17 years old?
Did study patients have intestinal resection prior to TPN given?
Did study patients have documented bacterial infection after TPN started?
Did study patients have documented impaired mucosal immunity after TPN started?
Study Intervention Did at least one study group received Intravenous (IV-TPN?
Did study group received IV-TPN more than10 days?
