Mayo Clinic researchers are studying methods of PN that can reduce the risk of complications and improve the quality of life of people who need intravenous feeding. Specific areas of interest include the effects of PN on liver disease and bone mineral density, and the ethics of long-term intravenous feeding.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on PN on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
