The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) ferumoxytol compared to IV iron sucrose for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA).
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of ferumoxytol for the repletion of iron stores and correction of iron deficiency anaemia in patients with severe chronic kidney di...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of ferumoxytol for the episodic treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the time point of TSAT and ferritin stabilization after a thirteen-treatment period following a Feraheme™ load, as well as to determine the poin...
To evaluate the safety of 1.020 g of IV ferumoxytol compared to 1.500 g of IV Ferric Carboxymaltose (FCM).
Anemia, iron deficiency (ID), and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) among young children are public health concerns in developing countries.
Iron deficiency anemia is the most frequent cause of anemia world-wide and is a very common disorder in daily medical practice. Heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia) and pregnancy and delivery can ca...
Iron deficiency is the main cause of anemia worldwide. Iron supplementation leads to a rise of transferrin saturation and ferritin concentration, resulting in an increased hemoglobin level and decreas...
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 nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)
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)
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...
