Abstract

The status of 22:6n-3 and 20:4n-6 at birth in term infants is one of the major determinants of postnatal changes in these fatty acids. This finding indicates that research is required to characterize environmental, genetic, or both factors, which, in addition to maternal diet, could influence fatty acid status at birth.
