Every aspect of immune function is dependent on a proper supply and balance of nutrients. Severe malnutrition significantly alters immune response, but even subclinical deficits may impair response and increase risk of infection. Combined stressors reduce the ability of soldiers to resist pathogens, increase their susceptibility to biological warfare agents, and reduce the effectiveness of vaccines intended to protect them. This book examines the impact of various stressors and the role of dietary nutrients, nutritional supplements, and newer biotechnology methods in maintaining immune function of military personnel in the field. Stressors that impact immune function include compromised nutrition status, intense exercise, and stress (both physical and psychological).

The first part of this book is the committee's summary and evaluation of research by Army scientists on immune status of special forces troops, responses to the Army's questions, conclusions, and recommendations. The remainder contains papers by workshop speakers under such broad topics as, what is known about immune function, assessment techniques, the effect of nutrition, and the interactions and impact on health of varied stresses encountered by military personnel.
