The effect of the quality of feeding on serum lipoprotein levels was studied in 30 premature infants (mean gestational age 31.7 +/- 2.0 weeks, birth weight 1568 +/- 238 g). The neonates were classified into three groups fed with breast milk and two different formulae with low and high lipid contents. No significant differences in the serum triglyceride, total cholesterol, VLDL-, LDL-, and HDL-cholesterol values were found after six week's feeding of various lipid and protein intake.
