Mayo Clinic researchers are studying methods of total parenteral nutrition that can reduce the risk of complications and improve the quality of life for people who need intravenous feeding. Specific areas of interest include the effects of TPN 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 enteral nutrition on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
