Meanwhile, we have continued to study the relationship between taste and zinc, always comparing the clinical results with those of the tests conducted on rats. 22 CREATION OF ZINC DEFICIENT RATS Feeding young rats immediately after weaning period with zinc deficient feeds results in suspension of growth, loss of hair and exanthemata similar to human acrodermatitis enteropathica. Since zinc deficient rats are easily infected, it is necessary to feed each of them in a separate environmental control apparatus (EBAC-S) (Kishi 1984; Hasegawa 1986).

Farnell et al. (1985) showed in animal a 112 % increase of cerebral calcium content 12 days after intracranial injection of a single, lethal, dose of soluble aluminium salt. At an advanced stage of the aluminium encephalopathy, animals had a average brain tissue calcium concentration that exceeded by 275 % the control values. Furthermore these authors found that the increase in whole brain tissue calcium content was associated with alterations in the eletrical properties of neurons, suggesting that part of the measured increase in total brain calcium may be associated with increased intracellular calcium ions.

Since diagnosis ex juvantibus is the only measure we have at present, oral administration of zinc should be adopted as the first choice treatment for cases of idiopathic taste disorder. OLFACTION AND ZINC Olfaction functions through olfactory cells in the olfactory epithelium between the nasal septum and the superior nasal concha. Olfactory cells are a variation of nerve cells. 6 days (Moulton 1975) in the case of a mouse. At the end of the life span, the basal cell is changed into a new olfactory cell which replaces the old one.
