Özet

The depression of the immune system in chronic uremia is a well-known phenomenon but the role of serum zinc (Zn) levels on both cell-mediated and humoral immunity is still controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Zn supplementation on the immune system and on antibody response to multivalent influenza vaccine (MIV) in hemodialysis patients (HP).
