Summary

Zinc and vitamin d deficiency are associated with a state of inflammation/atherosclerosis.

There are studies demonstrating an association between vitamin d deficiency and respiratory illnesses.

Both zinc and vitamin d are associated with oxidative stress and inflammation.

Description

Both vit. d and zinc share anti inflammatory and anti oxidative actions. vit. d deficiency is associated with an increase in serum levels of proinflammatory cytokines and decreased levels of anti inflammatory cytokines.

there are reports concerning the association of vit. d deficiency with infections.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
