Abstract

Three studies measured effects of zinc repletion on growth and cognition of 6-9 year-old children. The first two involved urban and rural low-income Chinese children. The third was done on low income Mexican-Americans. Zinc repletion, given with other potentially limiting micronutrients for 10 weeks improved growth and cognition. The third study also measured immune functions. Zinc given with micronutrients increased IL-2 production and decreased IL-10 production by cultured peripheral blood mononuclear lymphocytes following phytohemaglutinin stimulation. Micronutrients alone had no apparent effect.
