Phase IIIb (1016 pts, 19 countries) study to evaluate the long-term efficacy of FCM (using targeted ferritin levels to determine dosing) or oral iron in NDD-CKD subjects with iron deficiency anaemia (IDA).
Open-label, multicentre, randomised, 3-arm design study to assess the use of FCM (using targeted ferritin levels to determine dosing) or oral iron to delay and/or reduce ESA use in NDD-CKD subjects with IDA.
Post an initial screening period (up to 4 weeks) eligible subjects will be randomised (1:1:2) to 1 of the following 3 treatment arms for a period of 52 weeks.
1. High dosage (1,000 mg of iron) regimen of intravenous FCM targeting a ferritin level of 400-600 mcg/L.
2. Low dosage (200 mg of iron) regimen of intravenous FCM targeting a ferritin level of 100-200 mcg/L.
3. Daily oral iron (180-200 mg elemental iron).
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Iron deficiency has a high prevalence in colorectal cancer patients ranging at ca. 60%. About 70% of these patients suffer from iron deficiency anemia (IDA) which adds both physical and co...
In oncology, anemia is a frequent symptom, leading to complication of patient management for, more or less, a long term but often poorly evaluated by medical teams. In oncology, anemia is...
The aim of this study is to show the benefits for patients, with a high platelet count, iron deficiency and IBD, receiving intravenous iron therapy.
This phase II study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Ferinject® in reducing perioperative transfusion in iron deficiency anemia patients anticipating pancreatoduodenectomy.
Study Design: Single-centre, block randomised, blinded, controlled, phase IIIb, parallel group pilot study. Primary Objective: • To evaluate the effect of the administration of f...
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...
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...
To compare the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) versus oral iron and other IV iron therapies in patients with iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) resulting from gastrointes...
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 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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
