Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It has been established that there is a strict and cyclical relationship between infection, immune function and nutritional status with changes in one influencing the other two. Impairment of immune function can occur even in healthy subjects in apparently good nutritional status as a consequence of some nutrient deficiencies. The impact of trace elements and vitamins on immune function are briefly reviewed.
