We studied the effect of iron supplementation on the iron status of mothers and on biochemical iron status and clinical and anthropometric measures in their infants. The subjects were 197 pregnant women selected at 28 wk +/- 21 d of gestation at a mother-and-child health center in Niamey, Niger. Ninety-nine women received 100 mg elemental Fe/d throughout(More)
Introduction: Since 1996, Niger has officially adopted the universal dietary salt iodization program (UDSI). Objective: It is a before‐after trial study conducted to determine the impact of UDSI program in Tiguey 16 years after. Subjects and methods: The study was centered on 371 volunteers whose thyroid gland was palpated and urinary iodine concentration(More)
BACKGROUND Both malnutrition and malaria affect drug disposition and are frequent among children in the tropics. We assessed their respective influence on quinine distribution. METHODS Forty children were divided into 4 groups: children with normal nutritional status without (group 1) or with (group 2) cerebral malaria, and malnourished children without(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the impact of spiruline on nutritional rehabilitation. DATA SOURCES Systematic search in medical and scientific databases (Medline, Cochrane, Embase) and other specific databases (PhD theses, reports...). METHODS We selected studies in which spiruline was used as supplementation in malnourished patients, irrespective of the form(More)
Introduction: Universal dietary salt iodization (UDSI) was implemented in Niger in 1996. However, since 2000 there was a slowdown in progress against iodine deficiency. Objective: The objective was to assess iodine nutritional status of infants and their lactating mothers living in Dosso, the state capital of a severe iodine deficiency region in Niger.(More)
Universal dietary salt iodisation (UDSI) programme was implemented in Niger in 1996. However, since 2000, there has been a slowdown in progress against iodine deficiency. The aim of our study was to assess the iodine status among pregnant women in a context where national controls are not effective at ensuring universal availability of adequately iodised(More)
The present work reports the clinical and laboratory findings in two endemic areas in Niger: Tiguey-Tallawal and Belley-Koira. The goitrous subjects (n = 293), mainly children and adolescents, have clinical evidence of euthyroidism but with biological criteria of hypothyroidism in 25% of cases as shown by the decrease of the total serum T4 and the increase(More)
An evaluation of iron status was carried out on 364 Nigerian pregnant women from Niamey at delivery and in cord blood from their newborns. Anemia, defined as a low hematocrit value, was observed in 46% of pregnant women. Iron deficiency, recognized by a combination of, at least, 2 abnormal values in the 3 independent indicators measured (serum ferritin(More)
The relationship between iron status and degree of infection by Schistosoma haematobium was studied in 174 schoolchildren from Niger in an area endemic for urinary schistosomiasis. Iron deficiency was defined by a combination of three reliable indicators: a low serum ferritin level combined with a low transferrin saturation, a high erythrocyte(More)
