Iron Sucrose In The Treatment of Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS): The Safety of Three Dose Regimens as Evaluated by Clinical Assessments
Non-randomized open label Phase II clinical trial in which subjects meeting criteria for RLS were assigned to 1 of three treatment cohorts. The first cohort received one 500 mg IV iron sucrose infusion in 500 mL normal sterile saline (NSS) administered over four hours. The second cohort received two 500 mg IV iron sucrose infusions in 500mL of NSS administered over four to six hours on two separate dates, separated by two to seven days. The third cohort received two 500 mg IV iron sucrose infusions in at least 500 mL of NSS over six hours within 30 hours of the start of the first infusion. Cohorts were enrolled and treated subsequently.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Restless Legs Syndrome
A disorder characterized by aching or burning sensations in the lower and rarely the upper extremities that occur prior to sleep or may awaken the patient from sleep. Complying with an irresistible urge to move the affected limbs brings temporary relief. Sleep may become disrupted, resulting in excessive daytime hypersomnolence. This condition may be associated with UREMIA; DIABETES MELLITUS; and rheumatoid arthritis. Restless Legs Syndrome differs from NOCTURNAL MYOCLONUS SYNDROME in that in the latter condition the individual does not report adverse sensory stimuli and it is primarily a sleep-associated movement disorder. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p387; Schweiz Rundsch Med Prax 1997 Apr 30;86(18):732-736)
An excessive accumulation of iron in the body due to a greater than normal absorption of iron from the gastrointestinal tract or from parenteral injection. This may arise from idiopathic hemochromatosis, excessive iron intake, chronic alcoholism, certain types of refractory anemia, or transfusional hemosiderosis. (From Churchill's Illustrated Medical Dictionary, 1989)
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.
Sucrose present in the diet. It is added to food and drinks as a sweetener.
Iron Regulatory Protein 2
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.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the bioequivalence of the test product Hospira Iron Sucrose 20 mg/mL (Hospira, Inc.) to the reference product Venofer® 20 mg/mL following...
To determine the effects of high-dose infusions of iron on Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) symptoms and brain concentrations of iron.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether, in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, restless legs syndrome (RLS) can be caused by pinched and damaged foot nerves called neuromas.
This is a open-label, prospective study comparing intravenous (IV) iron supplementation to standard care in anemic patents undergoing peritoneal dialysis.
The primary objective of this trial is to assess the long-term safety and efficacy of XP13512 taken once daily for the treatment of patients suffering from Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS).
OBJECTIVE: Pregnancy is a risk factor for transient restless legs syndrome, which usually recovers during the postdelivery period. The goal of the present survey is to investigate whether restless leg...
Pain in the legs belongs to the five most frequent regional pain symptoms. Restless legs syndrome (RLS) presents a particular differential diagnosis for pain in the legs, which is characterized by a n...
We report a patient affected by restless legs syndrome as the presenting symptom of multiple myeloma, a hematologic malignancy characterized by clonal proliferation of plasma cells in the bone marrow...
Emerging clinical data indicate that dopaminergic agonists used to treat restless legs syndrome may be associated with dopamine dysregulation syndrome, particularly pathological gambling. We report a...
PURPOSE: Restless legs syndrome (RLS), a debilitating sleep disorder that is frequently reported by CKD patients on dialysis, may be more common in whites than in non-whites. Iro...
