A Study of Immunoglobulins Suggests Not There have been a number of clinical surveys of the possible prophylactic efTect of ascorbic acid in common ooids, but results of a slUdy of the relationship between ascorbic acid and immunoglobulin levels do not support the hypothesis. Blood ~mples collected from 8 healthy men during a year in the A ntarclic showCd a direct reh.lionship between blood ascorbic acid levels and serum IgG and IsM t itres. the immunological Significance of this being uncertain. However. the specific immunoglobulin (JgG) levels were affected more than nonspec.i!ic IgM levels. wh ich is the reverse of what would beexpected to suppon a prophylactic effect against acute infections. and the regression lines orlhe ascorbic acid-immunoglobulin relationships were well within the normal ranges of IgG and IgM. There is no evidence that healthy subjects with immunoglobulin lilTes at the upper end of lhe normal range have </p><p>greater res istance to acute infections. Further investigation of these relationships is suggested. </p><p>Vallance. s., Rrilish Mcdic&gt;tl Journal 2: 437 {1 3 Aug 1977) </p><p>INPHARMA 17th September. 1917 plO </p><p> /ColorImageDict &gt; /JPEG2000ColorACSImageDict &gt; /JPEG2000ColorImageDict &gt; /AntiAliasGrayImages false /CropGrayImages true /GrayImageMinResolution 150 /GrayImageMinResolutionPolicy /Warning /DownsampleGrayImages true /GrayImageDownsampleType /Bicubic /GrayImageResolution 150 /GrayImageDepth -1 /GrayImageMinDownsampleDepth 2 /GrayImageDownsampleThreshold 1.50000 /EncodeGrayImages true /GrayImageFilter /DCTEncode /AutoFilterGrayImages true /GrayImageAutoFilterStrategy /JPEG /GrayACSImageDict &gt; /GrayImageDict &gt; /JPEG2000GrayACSImageDict &gt; /JPEG2000GrayImageDict &gt; /AntiAliasMonoImages false /CropMonoImages true /MonoImageMinResolution 599 /MonoImageMinResolutionPolicy /Warning /DownsampleMonoImages true /MonoImageDownsampleType /Bicubic /MonoImageResolution 600 /MonoImageDepth -1 /MonoImageDownsampleThreshold 1.50000 /EncodeMonoImages true /MonoImageFilter /CCITTFaxEncode /MonoImageDict &gt; /AllowPSXObjects false /CheckCompliance [ /PDFA1B:2005 ] /PDFX1aCheck false /PDFX3Check false /PDFXCompliantPDFOnly false /PDFXNoTrimBoxError true /PDFXTrimBoxToMediaBoxOffset [ 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 ] /PDFXSetBleedBoxToMediaBox true /PDFXBleedBoxToTrimBoxOffset [ 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 ] /PDFXOutputIntentProfile (sRGB IEC61966-2.1) /PDFXOutputConditionIdentifier () /PDFXOutputCondition () /PDFXRegistryName () /PDFXTrapped /False</p><p> /CreateJDFFile false /Description &gt;&gt;&gt; setdistillerparams&gt; setpagedevice</p></li></ul>
