Abstract

Vitamin K-dependent clotting factors (FII, FVII, FX) and PT and TT were studied prospectively in 113 healthy newborns during the first 6 weeks of life. No vitamin K prophylaxis was given. Infants were divided into three groups: breast fed, formula fed or combination. The method of nutrition could not be found to influence the coagulation status.
