About the thesis
This thesis is part of the MANGO study that aimed to investigate the response to treatment of children with SAM given a reduced RUTF dose compared to children given the standard RUTF dose.

The results presented in this thesis cover the main outcomes of the trial namely the anthropometric and programmatic outcomes and the secondary outcomes related to body composition and vitamin A and iron status.

Additionally, changes occurring in the body composition and vitamin A and iron status of children during treatment were studied.
