EON introduces “DINI Axis”

or Anti-Infection Nutrition in Nutritional Immunotherapy

Strengthening Nutritional Status

Many countries are now facing a ‘double-burden’ of undernutrition in children and obesity in adults. Malnutrition can increase risk of infectious diseases, increase the severity of an infection, and impair the response to treatment. In addition, infectious diseases can increase malnutrition. Given the prevalence of infectious
diseases and the spread of drug resistant pathogens, innovative  approaches to decreasing morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases and delaying the spread of drug resistance
are needed to address the global burden of disease. Strengthening nutritional status may provide such an approach.

EON's Contribution: DINI Axis

EON’s scientists are constantly working in India to conduct field studies of infections and nutritional status in context of recent COVID-19 outbreak, worldwide. EON’s work focuses on understanding the role of nutritional status as a risk-factor for community acquired infections (CAI). A combination of cross-sectional field studies, longitudinal studies and qualitative field work is being used to characterize the role of nutritional status in susceptibility to CAI and its prevention.

Immunity plays major role in combating infections and prevention of its respiratory manifestations to reduce morbidity rate.

EON research team is taking special effort to use the Diet-Immunity-Nutrition-Infection Axis (DINI Axis) to workout the most scientific formulations in the field of Nutritional Immunotherapy.
