Baylor University Medical Centre has applied for a European patent for a fatty acid. According to the applicant, a seven-carbon fatty acid, n-heptanoic acid, has been identified as a good energy source for patients suffering from inherited metabolic disorders or acquired metabolic derangements, especially defects in long-chain fatty acid metabolism. A seven-carbon fatty acid can also be provided in a nutritional supplement for patients who need an increase in the energy production derived from fatty acid metabolism.
