Abstract Sepsis is defined as the dysregulated host response to an infection resulting in life-threatening organ dysfunction. The metabolic demand from inefficiencies in anaerobic metabolism, mitochondrial and cellular dysfunction, increased cellular turnover, and free-radical damage result in the increased focus of micronutrients in sepsis as they play a pivotal role in these processes. In the present review, we will evaluate the potential role of micronutrients in sepsis, specifically… Expand
Micronutrients in Sepsis and COVID-19: A Narrative Review on What We Have Learned and What We Want to Know in Future Trials
TLDR
This topic is addressed, including the recent advancement in the study of vitamin D and protocols based on vitamin C and other micronutrients, to explore an update in the setting of sepsis, gain some new insights applicable to COVID-19 patients, and contribute to a pathophysiological definition of the potential role of micronsutrients.

TLDR
Intravenous administration of vitamin C, thiamine, and hydrocortisone administration did not significantly improve the inpatient all-cause mortality among patients with septic shock. Expand
Blood thiamine (vitamin B1 ), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and cortisol concentrations in healthy and ill neonatal foals
TLDR
A potential association exists between illness in foals and lower blood concentrations of thiamine and ascorbic acid during hospitalization, and a larger population of foals is needed to examine the clinical impact of low vitamin concentrations, if any, on morbidity and mortality. Expand
Potential Effects of Melatonin and Micronutrients on Mitochondrial Dysfunction during a Cytokine Storm Typical of Oxidative/Inflammatory Diseases
TLDR
The main findings related to the powerful effects of melatonin and some micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), which may be useful (alone or in combination) as therapeutic agents in the treatment of several examples of oxidative/inflammatory pathologies, including sepsis, as well as cardiovascular, renal, neurodegenerative, and metabolic disorders are summarized. Expand
Efficacy of vitamin C in patients with sepsis: A updated meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 10 studies comparing the effect of vitamin C versus non-vitamin C infusion in patients with sepsis found no difference in the duration of vasopressor usage and the length of ICU or hospital stay. Expand
A Mechanistic Link Between Selenium and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
TLDR
It is found that oxidative stress is a characteristic feature of CO VID-19 disease, which is linked with the immunopathological disorder observed in individuals with severe COVID-19, and selenium deficiency is found to be associated with the severity of COVID -19 disease. Expand
A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

TLDR
In conclusion, intravenous selenium supplementation could not be suggested for routine use and was not found to be benefit for sepsis patients with reduced duration of vasopressor therapy, staying time in intensive care unit and hospital, and incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia. Expand
A Presentation on the COVID-19 Pandemic: Diet as an Adjunctive Therapy for Critical Ill Patients
TLDR
Recommendations in this paper help to improve the nutrition management among the critical ill patients based on the individual’s nutritional screening, metabolism, nutritional choices and approaches to healthy nutritious diets to boost up their immunity. Expand

  • 2020
TLDR
Thiamine intake is negatively correlated with HPV infection, and intake of an appropriate amount of thiamine can prevent HPV infection. Expand

Alterations in vitamin D status and anti-microbial peptide levels in patients in the intensive care unit with sepsis
TLDR
An association between critical illness and lower 25(OH)D and DBP levels in critically ill patients as compared to healthy controls is demonstrated and a positive association between vitamin D status and plasma LL-37 is established, which suggests that systemicLL-37 levels may be regulated by vitamin Dstatus. Expand
The effect of thiamine deficiency on inflammation, oxidative stress and cellular migration in an experimental model of sepsis
TLDR
TD was associated with greater bacterial clearance, oxidative stress and inflammatory response changes, and was associated in the CLP with TD chow group with significantly higher levels of TNF-α and MCP-1 concentrations. Expand
Attenuation of sepsis-induced organ injury in mice by vitamin C.
TLDR
VitC sufficiency or parenteral infusion of VitC, following induction of sepsis, normalized physiological functions that attenuated the development of MODS in sepsIs, and VitC deficient Gulo(-/-) mice were more susceptible to sepsic MODS. Expand
Metabolic resuscitation in sepsis: a necessary step beyond the hemodynamic?
TLDR
The protective effects of thiamine on mitochondrial function may justify supplementation in septic patients at risk of deficiency, and metabolic resuscitation may probably be a safe and effective strategy in the treatment of septic shock in the future. Expand
Vitamin C fails to protect amino acids and lipids from oxidation during acute inflammation.
TLDR
The observations suggest that ascorbate plays a previously unappreciated role in host defense mechanisms against invading pathogens but that the vitamin does not protect amino acids and lipids from oxidative damage during acute inflammation. Expand
Thiamine supplementation in the critically ill
TLDR
Thiamine deficiency should be suspected in different clinical scenarios such as severe sepsis, burns, unexplained heart failure or lactic acidosis, neurological disorder in patients with previous history of alcoholism, starvation, chronic malnutrition, long-term parenteral feeding, hyperemesis gravidarum, or bariatric surgery.

Antioxidant Vitamins and Trace Elements in Critical Illness.

TLDR
It remains unclear whether supplementation of antioxidant micronutrients has any clinical benefit in critically ill patients as some studies show clear benefits, whereas others demonstrate neutral outcomes and even harm. Expand
Effect of 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 in experimental sepsis
TLDR
A positive modulating effect of 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 supplementation on sepsis-induced coagulation disturbances in the coecal ligation and puncture model is suggested and no significant differences between vitamin D and placebo-treated rats with regards to liver function are found. Expand
Randomized controlled trial of calcitriol in severe sepsis.
TLDR
Calcitriol administration did not increase plasma cathelicidin protein levels in critically ill patients with sepsis and had mixed effects on other immunomodulatory markers. Expand
Ascorbate-dependent vasopressor synthesis: a rationale for vitamin C administration in severe sepsis and septic shock?
TLDR
It is conceivable that administration of ascorbate to septic patients with hypovitaminosis C could improve endogenous vasopressor synthesis and thus ameliorate the requirement for exogenously administered vasopressors. Expand
