The aim of the present study is to evaluate of the impact of immunonutrition on parameters of oxidative stress and inflammation in patients with cystic fibrosis and malnutrition. In the 30 patients with cystic fibrosis and long-term enteral nutrition support for malnutrition the effect of standard and immunonutrion sipping on oxidative stress and inflammatory activity parameters was compared. Malonyldialdehyde (MDA) as parameter of oxidative stress and serum amyloid A (SAA), interleukin 1 and 6, hsCRP, IgM, IgA, IgG as parameters of inflammatory activity were examined. Immunonutrition decreased SAA to 17.6 mg/L comparing to 25.6 mg/L when standard nutrition was given (p = 0.014). MDA was 0.66 µM on standard and 0.96 µM on immunonutrition support (p<0.01). The significant negative correlation was recorded between MDA and SAA, hs-CRP, interleukin 6, IgA and IgG. In conclusion, the application of immunonutrition in patients with cystic fibrosis and malnutrition is associated with drop of SAA but with the rise of MDA.
