Lactoferrin Efficacy Versus Ferrous Sulfate in Treatment of Patients With Iron Deficiency Anemia

2020-02-17 18:20:57 | BioPortfolio


Lactoferrin (Lf) is a mammalian cationic iron binding glycoprotein belonging to the transferrin family which was discovered 70 years ago, and isolated simultaneously from human and bovine milks in 1960. It is widely distributed in all biological fluids and is also expressed by immune cells, which release it under stimulation by pathogens

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

An iron-binding protein in plasma and secretions (milk, mucus, bile), secreted by leukocytes. It is an important component of GRANULOCYTES. It is bacteriostatic, working by depriving bacteria of iron essential for growth.

A compound given in the treatment of conditions associated with zinc deficiency such as acrodermatitis enteropathica. Externally, zinc sulfate is used as an astringent in lotions and eye drops.
