Nutritional status and some iron metabolism parameters of acute phase response (APR) positive and APR-negative AIDS patients were studied. Twenty-nine AIDS patients were submitted to 24h food intake recall, anthropometry, and albumin, C-reactive protein (CRP), hemoglobin, ferritin, and total iron binding capacity (TIBC) measurements. Infection plus serum CRP > 7 mg/dl were criteria for APR presence. Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) was ascertained by body mass index (BMI) lower than 18.5 kg/m2… Expand
