OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between vitamin A deficiency (VAD), vitamin E deficiency (VED) and infectious diseases. PATIENTS AND METHODS We chose 684 cases of healthy children age 5 months-12 years from our hospital, measured their VA, VE from vein under the light proof condition with high-pressure liquid chromatography. Thereafter, the children who get the acute respiratory tract infection (ARI) or diarrhea two weeks later were registered. RESULTS After the two weeks trial (N… Expand
Vitamin A deficiency is associated with severe Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia in children.
It is important to watch and supplement vitamin A in M. pneumoniae infection patients and vitamin A deficiency is associated with sMPP and more likely present in the younger s MPP samples. Expand
Vitamin E deficiency in South Asian population and the therapeutic use of alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) for correction of anemia
Several studies on patients with various types of inherited hemolytic anemias, chronic renal disease, premature low birth infants and apparently healthy humans have shown that vitamin E might be therapeutically effective in the prevention and/ or treatment of anemia in these subjects. Expand
Nutritional assessment of children with Wilson’s disease: single center experience
In Wilson’s disease assessment of growth, detailed anthropometric measurements as well as vitamin, trace elements and electrolytes should be closely monitored. Expand
Role of Vitamin A in the Immune System
To better understand the relationship between nutrition and the immune system, the authors review recent literature about VitA in immunity research and briefly introduce the clinical application of VitA as a therapeutic effect in the treatment of several infectious diseases. Expand
Therapeutic vitamin delivery: Chemical and physical methods with future directions
Of particular interest is the potential for transdermal delivery of certain vitamins, which is an approach that may provide advantages in some populations, but that still requires considerable additional research and clinical validation. Expand
Use of statistical software for experimental design
Instrumental analysis (chromatography) of vitamin E was optimized and trend analysis showed a tendency towards the corner points of highest possible temperature and shortest possible saponification time. Expand


Increased risk of respiratory disease and diarrhea in children with preexisting mild vitamin A deficiency.
The risk of respiratory disease and diarrhea were more closely associated with vitamin A status than with general nutritional status, and may explain much of the excess mortality recently reported for mildly vitamin A-deficient children. Expand
Co-assessment of iron, vitamin A and growth status to investigate anemia in preschool children in suburb Chongqing, China
Vitamin A and iron deficiency are still public health problems in some localities of China and public health interventions in anemia control should be used to eliminate deficiencies of vitamin A, iron, and other micronutrients by deliberate supplementation. Expand
Abnormal T-cell subset proportions in vitamin-A-deficient children
Vitamin-A-deficient children have underlying immune abnormalities in T-cell subsets and these abnormalities are reversible with vitamin A supplementation, according to a randomised, double-masked, placebo-controlled clinical trial among children in West Java, Indonesia. Expand
Oral Absorbable Fat-soluble Vitamin Formulation in Pediatric Patients With Cholestasis
High rates of FSV deficiency were found in pediatric patients with chronic cholestasis under present follow-up and OAFSV supplementation is safe and potentially effective in Pediatrics. Expand
Fat-Soluble Antioxidant Vitamins, Iron Overload and Chronic Malnutrition in β-Thalassemia Major
This study shows that children with β-thalas-semia major are in a state of oxidative stress of hyperfer-ritinemia with deprived antioxidant vitamins (A and E) and poor growth status suggesting a possible need for reduction in iron overload and additional antioxidant supplementation. Expand
Effects of vitamin D3 and vitamin E on prednisolone-induced alterations of phagocyte function.
It is suggested that vitamin D3 and α-tocopherol can prevent immunosuppressive effects of prednisolone through elevating the efficacy of oxygen-dependent mechanisms of phagocytosis and increasing the functional activity ofphagocytic cells. Expand

In VA-deficient rats, antibody responses following immunization with capsular polysaccharide or protein antigens were very low, whereas responses to lipopolysaccharides were normal, and in all cases of low antibody response, retinol treatment before immunization restored antibody production to control levels.

Dietary supplementation with vitamin E modulates avian intestinal immunity.
The results illustrate the potential for some levels of dietary vitamin E supplementation to act as an immunomodulator of total and antigen-specific IgA antibody. Expand
Measurement of vitamin E in serum and plasma by high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection.
This work describes a method for the quantitation of vitamin E in small volumes (less than or equal to 50 microliters) of serum or plasma without the need for extraction or concentration of the sample. Expand
Prophylactic role of α-lipoic acid and vitamin E against zinc oxide nanoparticles induced metabolic and immune disorders in rat's liver.
Either α-lip or vit E proved to be hepatoprotective agents against ZnO-NPs toxicity because they ameliorated metabolic and immune disorders related to liver damage and modulated the previous measured parameters. Expand
