Polyglucoferron Compared to i.v. Ferric Carboxymaltose and Oral Iron Substitution in Preoperative Treatment of Iron Deficiency Anaemia in Patients

2019-09-17 02:47:24 | BioPortfolio


Patients with IDA and for whom fast replenishment of iron stores is necessary, e.g. if its not appropriated to postpone surgery, will be identified within 28 to 42 days before surgery. Patients will be randomised to receive either Polyglucoferron intravenously (i.v.), Ferric Carboxymaltose i.v. or oral iron substitution with Ferrous sulfate.


Randomised, active-controlled, open-labelled, parallel group, multicentre study to demonstrate superiority of Polyglucoferron i.v. compared to oral iron substitution for the treatment of iron deficient anaemic patients who need fast replenishment of iron stores as judged by the treating physician, e.g. if it is not appropriate to postpone surgery, before elective non-cardiac surgery and superiority of Polyglucoferron i.v. vs Ferric Carboxymaltose in short term safety monitoring.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The reaction of potassium ferrocyanide with ferric iron to yield a dark blue precipitate at the sites of the ferric iron. Used to determine ferric iron in tissues, particularly in the diagnosis of disorders of iron metabolism.

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.

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 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)

A compound formed by the combination of hemoglobin and oxygen. It is a complex in which the oxygen is bound directly to the iron without causing a change from the ferrous to the ferric state.
