Brain Iron Toxicity and Neurodegeneration - A 7T MRI Study
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04992975

Sep 29th, 2022 - This study aims to determine whether high resolution MRI at 7T and Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM) can demonstrate a specific pattern of iron overload in strategically important areas of brain as a sensitive marker of pathological Alzhei...

Preoperative Monoferric for Abdominal Surgery
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05258825

Sep 22nd, 2022 - The Food and Drug Administration approved drug Monoferric has a unique structure that allows for a slow, sustained release and bioavailability without free iron toxicity. Efficacy studies demonstrated a faster change in hemoglobin concentration fr...

Kidney International; Fan X, Zhang X et. al.

Aug 26th, 2022 - Hemopexin, a heme scavenging protein, accumulates in the kidneys during acute kidney injury (AKI). However, the function of this accumulated hemopexin in the kidney is unclear. In both the cisplatin-induced and the unilateral kidney ischemia-reper...

Iron Supplement to Improve Iron Status Following Bariatric Surgery
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02404012

Aug 5th, 2022 - Objectives: To determine the most effective oral iron supplementation regimen for repletion of iron deficiency in patients who have had gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy. In iron deficient patients, two supplement regimens will be compared: Fer...

Indices of iron homeostasis in asymptomatic subjects with HFE mutations and moderate fe...
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bcmd.2022.102689
Blood Cells, Molecules & Diseases; Infanti L, Leitner G et. al.

Jul 6th, 2022 - We analysed iron biomarkers and their relationships in 30 subjects with HFE mutations and moderate hyperferritinaemia undergoing iron removal at our blood donation centre. Body mass index (BMI) and liver enzymes were assessed. Serum iron (SI), fer...

The Iron Content of Ferritin in Serum and Urine of Children With High Serum Ferritin Levels
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03777904

Apr 5th, 2022 - A serum ferritin level can reflect the total body iron content, thus a very low serum ferritin is commonly used as an indicator of iron deficiency and a very high serum ferritin is commonly used as a marker of iron overload. Ferritin is a shell of...

Red Blood Cell - IMProving trAnsfusions for Chronically Transfused Recipients
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05255445

Mar 21st, 2022 - Sickle cell disease (SCD) and thalassemia are genetic disorders inducing anemia of differing pathophysiology. A primary therapy for preventing certain SCD complications (e.g., stroke) and for thalassemia major is regular red blood cell (RBC) trans...

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.
