Abstract

These results indicate that PAB may not be a sensitive marker for evaluating the adequacy of nutrition support in critically ill patients with inflammation. Only change in CRP was able to significantly predict changes in PAB, suggesting that an improvement in inflammation, rather than nutrient intake, was responsible for the increases in PAB levels.
