    This study was conducted in order to test the usefulness of measuring the concentrations of selected serum proteins and acute phase reactants in assessing the nutritional status of children with undue susceptibility to acute infections. The concentrations of serum proteins were determined by an immunodiffusion technique in 28 children with undue susceptibility to infections and were compared with those in healthy children. The patients were grouped according to the clinical pattern, i.e. into children with mainly upper respiratory tract infections, with frequent middle ear infections and with lower respiratory tract infections. The total group and all three subgroups of patients had not only significantly lower (p less than 0.001 or p less than 0.01) mean serum levels of albumin and retinol-binding protein, but also of the acute phase reactants alpha 2-macroglobulin and ceruloplasmin (p less than 0.01) than the controls. No differences were observed between the patients and the controls in respect of the acute phase reactant orosomucoid. This study indicates that the concentrations of albumin and RBP along with selected acute phase reactants are rapidly influenced by altered nutritional status in children with undue susceptibility to acute infections.

    Foodborne illness is a major public health problem in the United States and globally. Both the developed and developing countries suffer the consequences of foodborne illness, but to varying degrees. Recent U.S. estimates indicate that some 76 million illnesses and 5,000 deaths are attributed annually to foodborne illness. Among all illnesses attributed to foodborne causes, 30% are caused by bacteria, 3% by parasites, and 67% by viruses (Mead et al. 1999 ). The incidence of foodborne illness in developing countries is less well-understood than in the U.S. Estimates issued by the World Health Organization (WHO)3 that diarrheal disease caused by the consumption of contaminated food or water is the third leading cause of death in the developing countries. Estimates for 1998 indicate that 2.2 million deaths are attributable to diarrheal disease, of which 1.8 million occur in children less than 5 y of age. Overall, it is estimated that 1.5 billion cases of diarrheal disease occur annually in children under 5 y of age (WHO 1999 ). The rates of foodborne illness and their causative agents vary between the developed and developing countries. Although many of the bacterial pathogens responsible for foodborne illness in the U.S. are also common in developing countries, there is a major difference in the relative importance of the bacterial pathogens in different locations.
