Zinc and iron supplementation and malaria, diarrhea, and respiratory
infections in children in the peruvian Amazon.
Richard SA, Zavaleta N, Caulfield LE, Black RE, Witzig RS, Shankar AH
Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2006 Jul ; 75(1): 126-32
Iron and zinc deficiencies are common in developing countries and
supplementation is one way of reversing these deficiencies.
The objective of this randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial was
to identify the effect of daily supplementation with iron, zinc, and
iron plus zinc on the morbidity experience of 855 children 0.5-15 years
of age in Peru.
In older children (more than five years of age), iron supplementation
increased morbidity due to Plasmodium vivax and diarrhea.
In younger children, iron combined with zinc provided protection
against P.
Iron and zinc deficiencies should be remedied, and combined
supplementation may be a good option, particularly in younger children
in P.
vivax malaria-endemic areas, although local endemicity and
species-specific prevalence should be considered carefully when
designing any supplementation program involving iron in a
malaria-endemic area
