Zinc Deficiency And Stnf-Rii Are Associated With Worse Covid-19 Outcomes.

Publication date: Dec 01, 2023

Zinc (Zn) is known for its substantial involvement in immune response as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Zinc plasma levels’ clinical significance at COVID diagnosis is not yet fully established. We assessed the association between Zn deficiency, gut integrity, inflammation, and COVID-19 outcomes. A prospective observational cohort in which plasma zinc (Zn), soluble tumor necrosis factor alpha receptor II (sTNF-RII) intestinal fatty-acid binding protein (IFABP; marker of intestinal integrity), and zonulin levels (intestinal permeability) were collected from participants during the acute phase of a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis. Zinc was modeled as continuous and binary, categorized as Zn deficiency (Zn
