The combined effects of protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) and infection on thymic function evaluated by specific plasma thymulin activity were studied in Senegalese children: 29 hospitalized in Dakar for severe malnutrition and various diseases; 9 infected without sign of severe PEM, living in Dakar; 13 apparently healthy, uninfected, living in Dakar; and 7 apparently healthy, uninfected, living in Paris. Most of the free-living children in Dakar suffered from mild to moderate PEM. The specific… CONTINUE READING
