Ferroptosis in infection, inflammation, and immunity.
The Journal of Experimental Medicine; Chen X, Kang R et. al.

May 13th, 2021 - Ferroptosis is a type of regulated necrosis that is triggered by a combination of iron toxicity, lipid peroxidation, and plasma membrane damage. The upstream inducers of ferroptosis can be divided into two categories (biological versus chemical) a...

Hard as Iron: A Case of Delayed Presentation of Severe Iron Toxicity With Diagnostic an...
Pediatric Emergency Care; Rickner SS, Feng SY

Apr 28th, 2021 - Cases of severe iron toxicity have become increasingly rare; most cases are intentional ingestions by late adolescents and adults who present within 12 hours of ingestion. We present a case of an adolescent girl with metabolic acidosis, hypoglycem...

Population genetic structure and association mapping for iron toxicity tolerance in rice.
PloS One; Pawar S, Pandit E et. al.

Mar 2nd, 2021 - Iron (Fe) toxicity is a major abiotic stress which severely reduces rice yield in many countries of the world. Genetic variation for this stress tolerance exists in rice germplasms. Mapping of gene(s)/QTL controlling the stress tolerance and trans...

Novel mutations in ATP13A2 associated with mixed neurological presentations and iron to...
Brain Research; Kırımtay K, Temizci B et. al.

Oct 23rd, 2020 - Kufor-Rakeb Syndrome (KRS) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by Parkinsonism, pyramidal signs, dementia, and supranuclear gaze palsy. KRS is caused by mutations in ATP13A2producing a transmembrane protein responsible for the regulati...

Potential amelioration of waterborne iron toxicity in channel catfish (Ictalurus puncta...
Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety; Yadav AK, Sinha AK et. al.

Sep 27th, 2020 - Iron overload in water is a problem in many areas of the world, which could exert toxic effects on fish. To achieve maximum growth and overall fitness, iron induced toxicity must be alleviated. Therefore, this research was undertaken to investigat...

Observational Study of Deferiprone (Ferriprox®) in the Treatment of Superficial Siderosis

Sep 23rd, 2019 - First described over 100 years ago, superficial siderosis is a rare neurodegenerative disease caused by iron toxicity in the CNS due to chronic subarachnoid bleeding. Iron from red blood cells in the subarachnoid space is preferentially taken up b...

Denosumab Versus Zoledronic Acid in Thalassemia-Induced Osteoporosis

May 31st, 2018 - Despite the significant improvements in the therapeutic management of beta thalassemia major (BTM) over the past few decades, osteoporosis is still a common finding, even in optimally treated patients. The relationships between bone mineral densit...

Changes in Pituitary Iron and Volume With Deferasirox

Jun 20th, 2011 - Despite continuing advances in iron chelation therapy, iron toxicity of endocrine glands, particularly the pituitary gland, remains common in patients with transfusion dependent anemias. We would like to establish accurate population norms of pitu...

Combined Chelation Treatment With Deferiprone and Deferoxamine in Thalassemia Major

Jun 24th, 2005 - Thalassemia Major (TM) is a hereditary anemia resulting from a single gene defect that results in abnormal red cell production. The survival of affected individuals is dependent upon lifelong blood transfusions. Unfortunately, this causes total bo...

NRTIs: New Frontier in AMD

May 25th, 2017 - Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) or their derivatives could one day be used to prevent or treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to Jayakrishna Ambati, MD, of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. NRTIs...

Will We Make Artificial Blood Soon? (STAT)

Feb 27th, 2017 - Researchers have sought a blood substitute for over 150 years, and they've all failed. Now, one candidate has demonstrated promising early results, while another nears clinical trials again, reported STAT. ErythroMer encloses hemoglobin in a synth...

Study challenges previous notions about RBC disposal
HT Staff

Jul 19th, 2016 - Red blood cells A new study contradicts previous beliefs about how the body disposes of red blood cells (RBCs) and recycles their iron. The work suggests the accumulation and removal of aged or damaged RBCs largely takes place in the liver rather.

Excess Iron May Boost Adult Height

Aug 21st, 2013 - Action Points Patients with hemochromatosis were taller on average than those in a reference population. The deviation in height did not correlate with the type of HFE mutation, serum ferritin level, liver enzyme elevation, liver fibrosis, or clin...
