Calculated daily dietary intakes of tryptophan and niacin were analyzed by statistical correlation with 24-hr urinary excretions of nine metabolites of tryptophan. The metabolites were: 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and indoleacetic acid derived through the "indole pathway:" anthranilic...
Nutritional liver injury was studied in 14 patients with protein-calorie malnutrition which included 4 children and 10 adults. Hepatomegaly was present in six patients. Liver function tests were normal in all. Light microscopic studies of liver biopsies revealed only mild and nonspecific...
Lactose tolerance tests were performed on 34 healthy subjects from 9 families of African. Asian, or Latin American origin. Eleven (72%) of the adults and 4 (25%) of the children were found to be lactose intolerant or lactose non-digesters (blood glucose rise < 25 mg/100 ml). All children under 5...

It is clear from the above that all questions regarding host defense mechanisms cannot be answered now. What is clear, however, is that a beginning has been made. For example, phagocytes in leukocytes from children with PCM do not appear to engulf or kill bacteria as well as leukocytes collected...
Data are presented from several studies concerning the effect of varying protein intake on urinary calcium excretion, A markedly positive correlation was found between protein ingestion and calciuria. Although the response was not linear, varying protein intake from 0 g to 90 g N per day results...
Measurements were made of triglyceride concentrations in the liver, serum, and serum lipoproteins in malnourished Jamaican children with fatty liver. The fasting serum triglyceride concentrations of the patients, before treatment, were highly variable, ranging from 55.6 to 353 mg/l00 ml. The...
