BACKGROUND Acute phase proteins (APPs) are associated with malaria-induced hyporetinemia (serum retinol <0.70 micromol/L); however, the degree of the association is not well documented. OBJECTIVE The association between malaria-induced hyporetinemia and APPs was assessed. DESIGN In a cross-sectional study, 90 children with serum retinol concentrations from <0.35 to >1.05 micromol/L were selected from children in a clinical trial of vitamin A supplementation. Serum was collected before… CONTINUE READING
