Relations between iron status, immunity and resistance to infections


, : Relations between iron status, immunity and resistance to infections. Cahiers de Nutrition et de Dietetique 27(3): 153-160

The relation between iron status and immunity plus resistance against infections is reviewed. There seems to be a change in bactericidal activity in neutrophils so that humoral immune response is less affected in persons deficient in Fe. The role of the amount of transferrin bound Fe available for T-cells and alteration of interleukin 2 production has been proposed as the mechanism involved.
