Despite the lack of studies with the new coronavirus, it is known that adequate ' 'serum levels of micronutrients are essential for the organic response to infectious diseases. ' 'Thus, we aim to review the effects of vitamin A, D, iron, zinc, or folate deficiency on the ' 'prognosis of patients with respiratory infections with manifestations similar to COVID-19 and ' 'discuss about supplementation of the nutrients analyzed in this review. METHODS: The search ' 'was conducted in the databases PubMed, Lilacs, and SciELO, including observational studies ' 'published between 2010-2020, with results for individuals with respiratory tract infections ' 'with manifestations similar to COVID-19. RESULTS: Six articles met the inclusion criteria, ' 'all of which were related to deficiencies of vitamins A and D. In general, vitamin A ' 'deficiency was associated with cough, fever, and greater total respiratory resistance. ' 'Regarding vitamin D, the lack of this nutrient led to higher rates of ICU admission, the need ' 'for mechanical ventilation, and mortality. Evidence linking specific relationships between ' 'nutritional deficiencies and COVID-19 remain lacking due to the small number of studies and ' 'heterogeneities in population subgroups. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, deficiencies of vitamins ' 'A and D seem to negatively affect the prognosis of respiratory tract infections. ' 'Supplementation of these nutrients for prevention or treatment of patients diagnosed with ' 'COVID-19 should respect serum levels, nutritional status and housing conditions (e.g.,endemic ' 'location) of individuals.</jats:p>', 'DOI': '10.1590/scielopreprints.839', 'type': 'posted-content', 'created': {'date-parts': [[2020, 6, 24]], 'date-time': '2020-06-24T19:29:12Z', 'timestamp': 1593026952000}, 'source': 'Crossref', 'is-referenced-by-count': 2, 'title': 'Vitamin A and D deficiencies in the prognosis of respiratory tract infections: A systematic ' 'review with perspectives for COVID-19 and a critical analysis on supplementation', 'prefix': '10.1590', 'author': [ { 'ORCID': 'http://orcid.org/0000-0003-1087-1320', 'authenticated-orcid': False, 'given': 'Maria Izabel Siqueira de', 'family': 'Andrade', 'sequence': 'first', 'affiliation': []}, { 'ORCID': 'http://orcid.org/0000-0002-2728-0431', 'authenticated-orcid': False, 'given': 'Patrícia Fortes Cavalcanti de', 'family': 'Macêdo', 'sequence': 'additional', 'affiliation': []}, { 'ORCID': 'http://orcid.org/0000-0002-5904-8557', 'authenticated-orcid': False, 'given': 'Tafnes Laís Pereira Santos de', 'family': 'Oliveira', 'sequence': 'additional', 'affiliation': []}, { 'ORCID': 'http://orcid.org/0000-0002-5185-1636', 'authenticated-orcid': False, 'given': 'Niedja Maria da Silva', 'family': 'Lima', 'sequence': 'additional', 'affiliation': []}, { 'ORCID': 'http://orcid.org/0000-0002-3817-2073', 'authenticated-orcid': False, 'given': 'Isabella da Costa', 'family': 'Ribeiro', 'sequence': 'additional', 'affiliation': []}, { 'ORCID': 'http://orcid.org/0000-0002-2920-2373', 'authenticated-orcid': False, 'given': 'Thayná Menezes', 'family': 'Santos', 'sequence': 'additional', 'affiliation': []}], 'member': '530', 'container-title': [], 'original-title': [], 'deposited': { 'date-parts': [[2022, 1, 20]], 'date-time': '2022-01-20T19:21:01Z', 'timestamp': 1642706461000}, 'score': 1, 'resource': { 'primary': { 'URL': 'https://preprints.scielo.org/index.php/scielo/preprint/view/839/version/913'}}, 'subtitle': [], 'short-title': [], 'issued': {'date-parts': [[2020, 6, 28]]}, 'references-count': 0, 'URL': 'http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/SciELOPreprints.839', 'relation': {}, 'subject': [], 'published': {'date-parts': [[2020, 6, 28]]}, 'subtype': 'preprint'}
