About the cover

The study on beneficial effects of maternal vitamin A supplementation on some infants’ malaria-related morbidities in rural communities in Ebonyi State, Southeastern Nigeria was carried out between August 2010 and November, 2011. One hundred and fifty two (152) malaria parasitaemic pregnant women whose pregnancies had matured up to the 6 th months were randomized into supplemented and placebo groups, with each group consisting of 76 women. Ten thousand international units (1U) of vitamin A was administered to the supplemented group three times per week while the placebo group received the vitamin A soft gels drained off its active ingredients thrice weekly. The two groups were followed up until they delivered their babies. On delivery of the babies, 200, 000 1U of vitamin A was administered within 8 weeks to the supplemented group. This regimen was cautiously repeated after every three month until the end of the study.
