  1. Impact of vitamin a supplementation on hematological indicators of iron metabolism and protein status in children.

    Article - En anglais

    A randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled, clinical trial of 236 preschool children, age 3-6, in West Java, Indonesia, was carried out to assess the impact of vitamin A supplementation on hematological indicators of iron metabolism and nutritional status.

    Clinically normal children (n=118) were matched by age and sex with xerophthalmic children (n=118) and randomized to receive oral vitamin A, 60,000 mug retinol equivalent, or placebo, creating a total of four study groups.

    Vitamin A supplementation was associated with a large increase (14.9+-15.6 mug/L) in plasma ferritin (p<0.0001), a moderate increase (30+-34 mg/L) in plasma transthyretin (p<0.0001).
