Abstract

Thymidine Activity (TA) was measured by the effect of serum upon incorporation of 3H-thymidine into human lectin-activated lymphocytes in 54 newborns: 32 full-term, 11 pre-term and 11 with intra-uterine growth retardation (IGR). Capillary blood was collected at 0-6 hours, with routine samplings. TA values were lower in preterm (0.476±0.079 U/ml) than in IGR (0.910±0.118 U/ml, p
