Hemochromatosis: pathophysiology, evaluation and management of hepatic iron overload with a focus on MRI.

Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is an autosomal recessive disorder that occurs in approximately 1 in 200-250 individuals. Mutations in the HFE gene leads to excess iron absorption. Excess iron in the form of non-transferrin bound iron (NTBI) causes injury and is readily up-taken by cardiomyocytes, pancreatic islet cells and hepatocytes. Symptoms greatly vary among patients and include fatigue, abdominal pain, arthralgias, impotence, decreased libido, diabetes and heart failure. Untreated hemochromatosis can...

Small molecule inhibitors of NFkB reverse iron overload and hepcidin deregulation in a zebrafish model for Hereditary Hemochromatosis Type 3.

Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is one of the most common genetic disorders in Caucasian populations, with no viable therapeutic options except phlebotomy. We describe a zebrafish model of human HH (HH) created by targeted mutagenesis of the gene encoding Transferrin receptor 2 (tfr2). TFR2 mutations in humans lead to HH Type 3, a rare but severe form of the disease. The tfr2 mutant model in zebrafish recapitulates the defining features of HH3; iron overload and suppression of hepcidin, the iron regulatory ...

Iron overload cardiomyopathy: from diagnosis to management.

Iron overload cardiomyopathy (IOC) is an important predictor of prognosis in a significant number of patients with hereditary hemochromatosis and hematologic diseases. Its prevalence is increasing because of improved treatment strategies, which significantly improve life expectancy. We will review diagnosis, treatment, and recent findings in the field.

Role of T1 mapping as a complementary tool to T2* for non-invasive cardiac iron overload assessment.

Iron overload-related heart failure is the principal cause of death in transfusion dependent patients, including those with Thalassemia Major. Linking cardiac siderosis measured by T2* to therapy improves outcomes. T1 mapping can also measure iron; preliminary data suggests it may have higher sensitivity for iron, particularly for early overload (the conventional cut-point for no iron by T2* is 20ms, but this is believed insensitive). We compared T1 mapping to T2* in cardiac iron overload.

Transferrin and Transferrin Receptors Update.

In vertebrates, transferrin (Tf) safely delivers iron through circulation to cells. Tf-bound iron is incorporated through Tf receptor (TfR) 1-mediated endocytosis. TfR1 can mediate cellular uptake of both Tf and H-ferritin, an iron storage protein. New World arenaviruses, which cause hemorrhagic fever, and Plasmodium vivax use TfR1 for entry into host cells. Human TfR2, another receptor for Tf, is predominantly expressed in hepatocytes and erythroid precursors, and holo-Tf dramatically upregulates its expre...

TIMP3 deficiency exacerbates iron-overload mediated cardiomyopathy and liver disease.

Chronic iron-overload results in heart and liver diseases and is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with genetic hemochromatosis and secondary iron-overload. We investigated the role of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP3) in iron-overload mediated tissue injury by subjecting male mice lacking Timp3 ( Timp3-/-) and wildtype (WT) mice to 12 weeks of chronic iron-overload. While iron-overload in the WT group developed diastolic dysfunction, iron-overloaded Timp3-/- mice showed wo...

Increased Sympathovagal Imbalance Evaluated by Heart Rate Variability is Associated with Decreased Cardiac-T2* and LV Function in Transfusion-Dependent Thalassemia Patients.

Early detection of iron overload cardiomyopathy is an important strategy in decreasing the mortality rate of patients with transfusion dependent thalassemia (TDT).  Although cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) T2* is effective in detecting cardiac iron deposition, it is costly and not generally available.  We investigated whether heart rate variability (HRV) can be used as a screening method of iron overload cardiomyopathy in TDT patients.  HRV, evaluated by 24-hour Holter monitoring, non-transferrin bound ...

Liver Iron Quantification with MR Imaging: A Primer for Radiologists.

Iron overload is a systemic disorder and is either primary (genetic) or secondary (exogenous iron administration). Primary iron overload is most commonly associated with hereditary hemochromatosis and secondary iron overload with ineffective erythropoiesis (predominantly caused by β-thalassemia major and sickle cell disease) that requires long-term transfusion therapy, leading to transfusional hemosiderosis. Iron overload may lead to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, in addition to cardiac and ...

Increased intracellular iron in mouse primary hepatocytes in vitro causes activation of the Akt pathway but decreases its response to insulin.

An iron-overloaded state has been reported to be associated with insulin resistance. On the other hand, conditions such as classical hemochromatosis (where iron overload occurs primarily in the liver) have been reported to be associated with increased insulin sensitivity. The reasons for these contradictory findings are unclear. In this context, the effects of increased intracellular iron per se on insulin signaling in hepatocytes are not known.

Effects of intracellular iron overload on cell death and identification of potent cell death inhibitors.

Iron overload causes many diseases, while the underlying etiologies of these diseases are unclear. Cell death processes including apoptosis, necroptosis, cyclophilin D-(CypD)-dependent necrosis and a recently described additional form of regulated cell death called ferroptosis, are dependent on iron or iron-dependent reactive oxygen species (ROS). However, whether the accumulation of intracellular iron itself induces ferroptosis or other forms of cell death is largely elusive. In present study, we study the...

Predicting factors for liver iron overload at the first magnetic resonance in children with thalassaemia major.

Transfusion dependency determines iron overload in thalassaemia major, with devastating complications. Significant liver iron overload has been observed from early childhood and we aimed to evaluate factors that could predict liver iron overload at the first magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Peroxiredoxin 5 prevents iron overload-induced neuronal death by inhibiting mitochondrial fragmentation and endoplasmic reticulum stress in mouse hippocampal HT-22 cells.

Iron is an essential element for neuronal as well as cellular functions. However, Iron overload has been known to cause neuronal toxicity through mitochondrial fission, dysregulation of Ca, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. Nevertheless, the precise mechanisms of iron-induced oxidative stress and mitochondria- and ER-related iron toxicity in neuronal cells are not fully understood. In this study, we demonstrated that iron overload induces ROS production earlier...

Clinical consequences of iron overload in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes: the case for iron chelation therapy.

Patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are at increased risk of iron overload due to ineffective erythropoiesis and chronic transfusion therapy. The clinical consequences of iron overload include cardiac and/or hepatic failure, endocrinopathies, and infection risk. Areas covered: Iron chelation therapy (ICT) can help remove excess iron and ultimately reduce the clinical consequences of iron overload. The authors reviewed recent (last five years) English-language articles from PubMed on the topic of i...

Reversal of end-stage heart failure in juvenile hemochromatosis with iron chelation therapy: a case report.

Juvenile hemochromatosis is the most severe form of iron overloading phenotype. Although rare, it should be suspected in patients who present with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, diabetes mellitus, or cardiomyopathy without a clear cause.

- 174 G>C IL-6 polymorphism and primary iron overload in male patients.

Primary iron overload (IO) is commonly associated with mutations in the hereditary hemochromatosis gene (HFE). Nonetheless, other genetic variants may influence the development of IO beyond HFE mutations. There is a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at - 174 G>C of the interleukin (IL)-6 gene which might be associated with primary IO. Our aim was to study the association between the SNP - 174 G>C gene promoter of IL-6 and primary IO in middle-aged male patients. We studied 37 men with primary IO diag...

Low-molecular-mass iron in healthy blood plasma is not predominately ferric citrate.

Blood contains a poorly characterized pool of labile iron called non-transferrin-bound iron (NTBI). In patients with iron-overload diseases such as hemochromatosis, NTBI accumulates in the liver, heart, and other organs. This material is probably nonproteinaceous and low molecular mass (LMM). However, the number, concentration, mass, and chemical composition of NTBI species remain unknown despite decades of effort. Here, solutions of plasma from humans, pigs, horses, and mice were passed through a 10 kDa cu...

Iron-Overload triggers ADAM-17 mediated inflammation in Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis.

Severe alcoholic hepatitis (SAH) is associated with iron accumulation in hepatocytes/macrophages. This possibly correlates with inflammation and stress but the exact mechanism still remains obscure. To understand the role of iron and the mechanisms of systemic iron-overload, a transcriptomic study of liver and Peripheral Blood -Mononuclear-Cells (PBMCs) was undertaken in SAH patients, with and without hepatic iron-overload. Our results show that iron-overload in hepatocytes/macrophages is due to an increase...

Chronic iron overload induces vascular dysfunction in resistance pulmonary arteries associated with right ventricular remodeling in rats.

Although iron excess is toxic to the cardiovascular system and even that pulmonary hypertension has been reported, the role of iron overload per se remains to be clarified. This study aimed to test the effects of chronic iron-overload in rats on the morphophysiology of resistance pulmonary arteries (RPA) and right ventricle (RV) remodeling. Rats were injected with saline or iron-dextran (10, 100 and 200 mg/kg/day i.p.) for 28 days. Our results indicated increased circulating iron with significant lung dep...

Improvement of chronic hepatitis B by iron chelation therapy in a patient with iron overload: A case report.

This report describes seroconversion of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) in a patient with marked iron overload caused by chronic hepatitis B (CHB) after receiving iron chelation therapy and discusses the role of iron chelation therapy in CHB.

Iron overload impact on P-ATPases.

Iron is a chemical element that is active in the fundamental physiological processes for human life, but its burden can be toxic to the body, mainly because of the stimulation of membrane lipid peroxidation. For this reason, the action of iron on many ATPases has been studied, especially on P-ATPases, such as the Na+,K+-ATPase and the Ca2+-ATPase. On the Fe2+-ATPase activity, the free iron acts as an activator, decreasing the intracellular Fe2+ and playing a protection role for the cell. On the Ca2+-ATPase ...

Can myocardial remodeling be a useful surrogate predictor of myocardial iron load? A 3D echocardiographic multicentric study.

The relationship between myocardial iron load and eccentric myocardial remodeling remains an under-investigated area; it was thought that remodeling is rather linked to fibrosis. This study aims to determine whether or not measures of remodeling can be used as predictors of myocardial iron. For this purpose, 60 patients with thalassemia were studied with 3D echocardiography and myocardial relaxometry (T2*) by Cardiac MRI. 3D derived sphericity index was significantly higher in patients with myocardial iron ...

MFe adipose tissue macrophages compensate for tissue iron pertubations in mice.

Resident adipose tissue macrophages (ATMs) play multiple roles to maintain tissue homeostasis, such as removing excess FFAs and regulation of extracellular matrix. The phagocytic nature and oxidative resiliency of macrophages not only allows them to function as innate immune cells but also to respond to specific tissue needs, such as iron homeostasis. MFe ATMs are a subtype of resident ATMs that we recently identified to have twice the intracellular iron content as other ATMs and elevated expression of iron...

Labile iron pool as a parameter to monitor iron overload and oxidative stress status in β-thalassemic erythrocytes.

Labile iron pool (LIP) is intracellular non-protein bound iron that can generate oxygen radicals via the Fenton reaction resulting in oxidative cell damage. Therefore, quantitative measurement of LIP will be helpful for detecting and monitoring the toxic iron status in iron overloaded patients. This study demonstrated LIP level and its correlation to oxidative stress status in β-thalassemic erythrocytes.

Burkholderia pseudomallei modulates host iron homeostasis to facilitate iron availability and intracellular survival.

The control over iron homeostasis is critical in host-pathogen-interaction. Iron plays not only multiple roles for bacterial growth and pathogenicity, but also for modulation of innate immune responses. Hepcidin is a key regulator of host iron metabolism triggering degradation of the iron exporter ferroportin. Although iron overload in humans is known to increase susceptibility to Burkholderia pseudomallei, it is unclear how the pathogen competes with the host for the metal during infection. This study aime...

Minocycline attenuates brain injury and iron overload after intracerebral hemorrhage in aged female rats.

Brain iron overload is involved in brain injury after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). There is evidence that systemic administration of minocycline reduces brain iron level and improves neurological outcome in experimental models of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke. However, there is evidence in cerebral ischemia that minocycline is not protective in aged female animals. Since most ICH research has used male models, this study was designed to provide an overall view of ICH-induced iron deposits at different ...
