Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Trace elements are involved in enzymatic activities, immunological reactions, physiological mechanisms and carcinogenesis. Deficiency in some trace elements, such as iron and iodine, is still an important health problem, especially in developing countries. Some groups of individuals are more likely to develop trace element deficiency. The role of trace elements deficiency is suspected in various clinical situations and is now confirmed by well designed supplementation studies. Although toxicity of trace elements with clinical manifestations is rare, it has been observed that manganese toxicity may occur in patients receiving parenteral nutrition. Recent data about trace elements deficiency and toxicity are indicated in this review.
