Fecal Calprotectin: Validation as a Noninvasive Measure of Bowel Inflammation in Childhood Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Background Calprotectin is an abundant neutrophil protein, which is extremely stable in feces. This study aimed to validate fecal calprotectin as a marker of bowel inflammation against invasiveExpand
Fecal Calprotectin as a Measure of Disease Activity in Childhood Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Background Calprotectin is an abundant neutrophil protein that is extremely stable in feces. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of fecal calprotectin as a noninvasive measure ofExpand
Effect of zinc supplementation on the dietary intake, rate of weight gain, and energy cost of tissue deposition in children recovering from severe malnutrition.
Children recovering from severe malnutrition on a milk based diet have low plasma zinc concentrations: children recovering on a soya based diet have much lower plasma zinc concentrations, lower ratesExpand
Hyperzincaemia and hypercalprotectinaemia: a new disorder of zinc metabolism
BACKGROUND Calprotectin (complex of S100A8 and S100A9) is the major calcium and zinc-binding protein of phagocytes. We report a new syndrome with recurrent infections, inflammation, andExpand
Dietary fiber in weaning cereals: a study of the effect on stool characteristics and absorption of energy, nitrogen, and minerals in healthy infants.
We evaluated the effect of increased dietary fiber (DF) content in weaning cereals based on wheat/soy (8.0 and 1.8% DF) and wheat/milk (5.3 and 2.0% DF) in healthy, formula-fed infants 7-17 weeksExpand
Relationship of trace element deficiencies to malnutrition
Perusal of most medical textbooks shows that childhood malnutrition in the tropics has been consistently ascribed to feeding a diet deficient in either protein or energy, or some combination of theExpand
Calprotectin‐Mediated Zinc Chelation as a Biostatic Mechanism in Host Defence
The S‐100 Ca2+ binding protein, calprotectin, isolated from neutrophil lysates, has been reported to exhibit zinc reversible biostatic activity in vitro. We verified these findings with C. albicansExpand
ZINC AND IMMUNOCOMPETENCE IN PROTEIN-ENERGY MALNUTRITION
Malnourished children have thymic atrophy which is reversed by zinc supplementation. To see if their defect in cell-mediated immunity was also associated with zinc deficiency ten children wereExpand

Thirty-four malnourished children were rehabilitated on either a cow's milk or a soya protein based formula diet. The soya diet contained 25% less zinc than the cow's milk diet and 1.33 mmol/l phyticExpand
Dietary treatment of severe malnutrition in adults.
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of two diets, differing primarily in protein content, on the nutritional rehabilitation of severely malnourished adults. The study took place in theExpand
