A Study to Evaluate the Safety (Compared to Iron Sucrose), Efficacy and Pharmacokinetics of Ferumoxytol for the Treatment of Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) in Pediatric Subjects With Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
Primary Objectives: To evaluate the safety (compared to iron sucrose) and efficacy of ferumoxytol in pediatric CKD subjects with iron deficiency anemia (IDA) or who are at risk of develop...
Evaluation of safety and efficacy of iron isomaltoside compared to iron sucrose in subjects suffering from IDA
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of IV ferumoxytol compared with placebo for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA).
Iron sucrose infusion is an iron replacement used to treat iron deficiency anemia (not enough iron in the body to make hemoglobin). Iron is a mineral that the body needs to produce hemoglo...
The purpose of this study is to determine if oral Heme Iron Polypeptide is as effective as IV iron sucrose in the treatment of iron-deficiency anemia for patients with chronic kidney disea...
Ferumoxytol is a superparamagnetic molecule originally developed as a contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging. Elemental iron is contained within the carbohydrate core and is released slowly aft...
Anemia, iron deficiency (ID), and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) among young children are public health concerns in developing countries.
Iron refractory iron deficiency anemia is an autosomal recessive disorder arising from defects in iron metabolism that cause microcytic anemia to grow resistant to treatment. The patients usually do n...
Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is characterized by depletion of total body iron stores or a poor supply of plasma iron. By contrast, chronic inflammation makes iron unavailable for hematopoiesis through...
Iron deficiency (ID) compromises the developing nervous system, including the hippocampus, resulting in later-life deficits despite iron repletion. The iron-dependent molecular changes driving these l...
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 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.
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 excessive accumulation of iron in the body due to a greater than normal absorption of iron from the gastrointestinal tract or from parenteral injection. This may arise from idiopathic hemochromatosis, excessive iron intake, chronic alcoholism, certain types of refractory anemia, or transfusional hemosiderosis. (From Churchill's Illustrated Medical Dictionary, 1989)
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.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
