After Symposium 2000, Giovanni Medeiros from Brazil was convinced of the need to have MSUD total parenteral nutrition (TPN) available for the children with MSUD in Brazil. Obtaining this IV solution when an MSUD child is hospitalized is often difficult in the United States and has been nearly impossible in many other countries. Giovanni was determined to find a ready source of the MSUD IV solution to use in TPN for MSUD. MSUD TPN is used to quickly lower the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) in sick children who cannot take their formula by mouth.
