Omegaven (fish oil triglycerides) is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, white, homogenous emulsion for intravenous infusion as a supply of calories in patients with PNAC. Each mL of Omegaven contains 0.1 g of fish oil, 0.012 g egg phospholipids, 0.025 g glycerin, 0.15 to 0.3 mg dl-alpha-tocopherol, 0.3 mg sodium oleate, water for injection, and sodium hydroxide for pH adjustment (pH 6 to 9). The phosphate content is 0.015 mmol/mL.

OMEGAVEN is injected into a vein (intravenous) by a healthcare provider and is administered daily over 8 to 24 hours.

Patients treated with OMEGAVEN achieved age-appropriate weight.

Were there any differences in how well the drug worked in clinical trials among sex, race and age?
