The Safety of a High-Dose, Rapid Infusion of Iron Sucrose

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Iron sucrose infusion is an iron replacement used to treat iron deficiency anemia (not enough iron in the body to make hemoglobin). Iron is a mineral that the body needs to produce hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. When the body does not get enough iron, it cannot produce enough hemoglobin and you become anemic.

The research study is looking at the side effects of using a higher dose and faster rate of iron sucrose infusion than what is used in standard of care. The purpose of this study is to see if infusion with 500 mg of iron sucrose over a one hour time period can be done safely. If this can be done safely, it may reduce the total number of infusions required and the time for each infusion. This may be less costly and less burdensome to patients.

A Trial Comparing Ferumoxytol With Iron Sucrose for the Treatment of Iron Deficiency Anemia

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) ferumoxytol compared to IV iron sucrose for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA).

Trial Comparing the Safety of Two Different Intravenous Iron Formulations

The purpose of this trial is to compare the safety profile using equal doses of intravenous iron dextran versus iron sucrose. The researchers hypothesize that significantly more patients ...

Intravenous Iron Sucrose for Treatment of Iron Deficiency Anemia in Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a common complication of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), yet the effectiveness of oral iron supplementation is limited. Intravenous iron sucrose is an effec...

Intravenous Iron Sucrose for Children With Iron Deficiency Anemia.

Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is the most common nutritional deficiency in children. Most children with IDA are treated with oral iron preparations. However, intravenous (IV) iron is an alternative for...

Two novel mutations in TMPRSS6 associated with iron-refractory iron deficiency anemia in a mother and child.

In an iron deficient child, oral iron repeatedly failed to improve the condition. Whole exome sequencing identified one previously reported plus two novel mutation in the TMPRSS6 gene, with no mutatio...

The role of preoperative iron deficiency in colorectal cancer patients: prevalence and treatment.

In preoperative blood management of colorectal cancer patients, intravenous iron therapy is increasingly used to treat anaemia and prevent red blood cell transfusions. However, while iron deficiency i...

Iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women.

Screening for iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in all pregnant women is recommended. IDA is a prevalent cause of nutritional deficiency anemia, and oral iron is the first line of treatment. Other treatmen...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.

Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value. The erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased.

A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its rate of degradation is increased in the presence of IRON.

A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its RNA binding ability and its aconitate hydrolase activity are dependent upon availability of IRON.

Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. Hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake, diminished iron absorption, or excessive iron loss. It can also be caused by infections or other diseases, therapeutic drugs, lead poisoning, and other conditions. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Miale, Laboratory Medicine: Hematology, 6th ed, p393)
