Nutritional Immunology

Nutrition is critical to immune defense and resistance to pathogens, with consequences that affect the health, welfare, and reproductive success of individual organisms, and also has profound ecological and evolutionary implications. In humans, under-nutrition or under-nourished, notably of protein, is a major contributor to mortality and morbidity due to infectious diseases, particularly in the developing world. Likewise, over-nutrition and its associated metabolic disorders may impair immune function, increase susceptibility to infectious disease, and disrupt the relationship with symbiotic and commensal microbiota.

The Nutritional Immunology investigates the role of dietary components and their interactions with other environmental factors and genes in age-associated changes of the immune and inflammatory responses. Various researches are going on to look on to determine the molecular mechanisms by which nutrients modulate immune cell functions. Methods are being developed to use the immune response as a biologically meaningful index in determining specific dietary requirements and reverse and/or delay the onset of these immunologic and age-related changes by appropriate dietary modifications.

The new era of research approach is to: 1) Study molecular and cellular mechanisms of age and nutrition-induced changes in immune and inflammatory responses.

2). Determine the efficacy of food components such as micronutrients and phytochemicals in the prevention of infectious, autoimmune and chronic diseases in animal models, clinical trials and observational studies in developed and less developed countries.

3) Determine the efficacy of food components including total calories, lipids, micronutrients such as vitamin E, and zinc, as well as flavonoids such as those in green tea and wolfberry, and pre- and pro-biotics on improving the immune function and/or dampening the inflammatory responses using cell culture, animal models, and clinical trials

4) Investigate the impact of nutrition during fetal life on long-life resistance to immune and inflammatory diseases.

5) Determine the life-long impact of obesity and reducing caloric intake on immune response and resistance to infection.
