Effect of different iron regimens on the course of Plasmodium berghei malaria in young rats



Effect of different iron regimens on the course of Plasmodium berghei malaria in young rats



Revista de Patologia Tropical 30(1): 43-60



Clinical and experimental evidence suggests that iron-deficient hosts are less susceptible to severe malaria and that iron supplementation aggravates infection. Weaning Wistar rats were fed on standard diets with different iron concentrations: 20mg/kg (group 1; n=24), 50 mg/kg (group 2; n=24) and 100 mg/kg (group 3; n=12).
