Despite its known prevalence in IBD, a recent study conducted with Prof. Cacoub (unpublished) on the national health insurance database showed that iron deficiency was an under-diagnosed and under-treated co-morbidity. In chronic diseases including IBD, Transferrin Saturation Factor is only performed in approximately 10% of cases, whereas it is recommended in inflammatory situations including IBD patients (HAS 2011).
The objective of this study is therefore to obtain updated French data on the prevalence of iron deficiency in patients with IBD by applying the recommendations of ECCO and French Health High Authority (determination of ferritinemia and Transferrin Saturation Factor)

Military personnel face intense physical and cognitive demands. Diminished iron status affects physiologic responses to these challenges. Both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies in...
This study aims to investigate a possible effect of iron status on temporary build-up of non-transferrin bound iron (NTBI) in healthy volunteers upon iron supplementation.
Iron deficiency is a common problem in the world and more so in the developing countries with a prevalence of 64 % (using WHO cut-off values of Hb
In recent years, considerable progress has been made in the detection and treatment of iron deficiency. The results are also relevant for many specialist areas and, in particular, for patients with ch...
Iron is an essential micronutrient for oxygen transport, cellular energy metabolism, and many enzymatic reactions. Complex physiological processes have evolved for iron acquisition to meet metabolic ...
Clinical observations in inflammatory bowel disease patients and experimental studies in rodents suggest that iron in the intestinal lumen derived from iron-rich food or oral iron supplementation coul...
Iron is essential for survival of most organisms. All organisms have thus developed mechanisms to sense, acquire and sequester iron. In s, iron uptake and sequestration are regulated by HIF-1. We prev...
Background Systemic iron status has been implicated in atherosclerosis and thrombosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of genetically determined iron status on carotid intima-media...
Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.
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.
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 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.
