The effect of selenium and zinc on CD4(+) count and opportunistic infections in HIV/AIDS patients: a randomized double blind trial.

Acta Clin Belg 2020 Jun 19;75(3):170-176. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

: We assessed the effect of selenium and zinc supplementation on CD4 cell count and the risk of developing opportunistic infections.: In a double blind clinical trial, 146 HIV(+) patients receiving combination antiretroviral therapy with CD4(+) >200/cubic millimeter were screened for comorbidities and opportunistic infections, and randomized to receive daily selenium (200 µg), zinc (50 mg) or placebo for 6 months, before a 3-month follow-up period. CD4 cell counts were measured in the 3, 6 and 9 months. The serum selenium and zinc were measured in the 6 month. The incidence of opportunistic infection was assessed monthly for 6 months and at the end of the 9 month.: The final incidence of supplement deficiency for placebo, zinc and selenium were 46.7%, 44.7% and 50.0%, respectively. Overall compliance with supplementation was 99.42%. Although the changes from baseline were not statistically significant, zinc supplementation was significantly associated with reduced risk of opportunistic infections.: Development of the opportunistic infections after zinc supplementation significantly decreased; however, significant improvement in CD4 count was not observed in this group.

For an evaluation of cardiopulmonary manifestations in typhoid in Iran, we studied 65 patients with positive blood or bone marrow culture for Salmonella typhi during a 2-year period. Cardiac complications were seen in 4.6% (myocarditis, pericarditis, pulmonary emboli) and pulmonary complications in 6.2%.

Inadvertent rubella vaccination of pregnant women: evaluation of possible transplacental infection with rubella vaccine.

Vaccine 2006 Apr 17;24(17):3558-63. Epub 2006 Feb 17.

School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, and Infectious Disease Department, Imam Khomeini Hospital, Tehran, Iran.

During mass campaign for measles/rubella vaccination on December 2003 in Iran, many pregnant women have vaccinated mistakenly. These women were grouped to susceptible and immune against rubella before vaccination by the status of IgG avidity response to rubella vaccine, then susceptible women were followed up to delivery time and their neonates were followed up to one year. In five neonates that were born from susceptible women, rubella-specific IgM has detected in cord blood sera, but they have not shown signs compatible to congenital rubella syndrome.
