Tinley, Christopher G., Withers, Nicholas J., Sheldon, Christopher D., Quinn, Anthony G. and Jackson, Alan A. (2008) Zinc therapy for night blindness in cystic fibrosis Journal of Cystic Fibrosis, 7, (4), pp. 333-335. (doi:10.1016/j.jcf.2007.11.005).

Record type: Article


This is the first report of a supplemented CF patient presenting with clinical vitamin A deficiency to be successfully treated with zinc therapy alone. Therefore in addition to retinol supplementation, normalizing serum zinc levels may be important in maintaining the vitamin A status of CF patients. The interactions and synergistic effects between the two micronutrients are discussed.
