  1. Fulltext. A new approach to combatting iodine deficiency in developing countries : the controlled release of iodine in water by a silicone elastomer.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    Four hundred million people or more may be exposed to iodine deficiency worldwide, in developing countries in particular.

    Because of the practical problems with existing methods for the large-scale prevention of iodine deficiency, the authors developed a new approach to collective prophylaxis.

    Methods

    This approach relies on the controlled diffusion of iodine into water from a silicone elastomer.

    Silicone matrices installed in a bore well released iodine at a rate sufficient to permit the daily per capita intake of a least 100 mug of iodine, the amount recommended by the World Health Organization.
