Data shown are the 5th, 50th, and 95th percentiles for all individuals in the age-sex groups shown. C. Ross eral randomized controlled studies conducted in various regions of the developing world; several meta-analyses of these data were published [see (50,51) for reviews]. In brief, vitamin A provided either in high-dose form (60–120 mg retinol) at 4- to 6-mo intervals, or weekly at a level similar to the RDA proved effective in reducing all-cause mortality by ~23%. Now that a consensus has been reached that vitamin A is an effective means of reducing mortality, research has shifted to studies designed to compare the effectiveness of various modes of delivering vitamin A, and to multimicronutrient supplementation in at-risk populations.
