Dietary Reference Intakes for Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Arsenic, Boron, Chromium, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Nickel, Silicon, Vanadium, and Zinc
may include transporter proteins that provide homeostatic regulation of zinc intake and cellular processing.
Information on the relationship of oxidative stress to zinc status; zinc is used therapeutically for treatment of some medical problems, but how this relates to daily dietary zinc intake is not clear.
Effectiveness and potential toxicity of zinc as a dietary supplement; on which systems should zinc’s potential effectiveness be based, and which systems become dysfunctional with excessive zinc intake.
The role of zinc and the immune system, particularly those related to T-cell function at marginal status.
Quantitative data on human zinc homeostasis under a wide range of dietary conditions and at all ages using recent advances in zinc stable isotope methodology; quantification of what happens to zinc homeostasis as zinc intakes and absorption are increased and decreased beyond the range typically seen until recently; these metabolic studies need to be long-term.
