Abstract

Abstract Plasma choline concentrations were measured in humans, rats, and rabbits within the first few hours of life, before any food was ingested. Neonatal animals and humans had markedly elevated plasma choline levels compared to adult animals or humans. Possible mechanisms responsible for this elevation are discussed and possible consequences for brain function, lung function, and growth are presented.
