C. difficile needs iron, but not too much: Insights into maintaining it 'just right'

(American Society for Microbiology) Those bacteria that require iron walk a tightrope. Iron is essential for their growth, but too much iron can damage DNA and enzymes through oxidation. Therefore, ba...

Pharmaceutical Research: Impact of Solubilizing Additives on Supersaturation and Membrane Transport of Drugs

Type: Original PaperPurposeMany enabling formulations give rise to supersaturated solutions wherein the solute possesses higher thermodynamic activity gradients than the solute in a saturated soluti...

C. difficile needs iron, but too much is hazardous

Those bacteria that require iron walk a tightrope. Iron is essential for their growth, but too much iron can damage DNA and enzymes through oxidation. Therefore, bacteria have machinery to maintain th...

Iron homeostasis in host defence and inflammation

Mammalian hosts have evolved a range of mechanisms that limit the ability of microorganisms to obtain iron and therefore to survive. Here, the authors describe the role of iron in infection and how ir...

Iron deficiency and cardiovascular disease

Iron deficiency is very common worldwide, and has detrimental effects in individuals with cardiovascular disease. Correction of iron deficiency via intravenous iron supplementation results in symptoma...

FDA OK's Novartis' oral iron chelator Jadenu

Chronic iron overload also can occur in patients with non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia syndromes (NTDT) due to increased iron absorption in the stomach and intestines.

Why excess iron can be dangerous

Iron is a most versatile element. It is essential to many of the enzymes that are the engines for life, and in mammals is also used to carry oxygen on hemoglobin in blood. Remember Popeye and his spin...

Better Than Oral Iron for Preop Anemia? IV Iron, Maybe

A Rare Case of Low-Solute Hyponatremia in a Nonalcoholic Person.

Low-solute hyponatremia is a relatively uncommon entity of euvolemic hyponatremia. Classic cases were described in alcoholics as beer potomania, which is characterized by hyponatremia in the setting o...

Iron-Deficiency Anemia.

Iron-deficiency anemia is the most common form of anemia in the world. This article reviews the global nature of the disease, iron homeostasis in normal and iron-deficient states, clinical findings, t...

Reassessment of Iron Biomarkers for Prediction of Dialysis Iron Overload: An MRI Study.

Iron overload among hemodialysis patients was previously considered rare but is now an increasingly recognized clinical situation. We analyzed correlations between iron biomarkers and the liver iron c...

Protein-like Copolymers as Encapsulating Agents for Small Molecule Solutes.

We describe the utilization of protein-like copolymers (PLCs) as encapsulating agents for small molecule solutes. We perform Monte Carlo simulations on systems containing PLCs and model solute molecul...

Iron clad: iron homeostasis and the diagnosis of hereditary iron overload.

Iron is an ubiquitous metal of vital importance to the normal physiologic processes of many organisms. Over the last 2 decades, the discovery of mutations in genes leading to hereditary disorders of i...
