The primary objective of this study is to examine the efficacy and safety (cardiovascular) of an investigational intravenous (IV) iron, ferric carboxymaltose (FCM), compared to IV iron sucrose (Venofer) in subjects who have iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and impaired renal function.

The main objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of an investigational intravenous (IV) iron, ferric carboxymaltose (FCM), compared to oral iron in subjects who h...
This study will evaluate bioequivalence of two formulations of Ferric Carboxymaltose as measured by serum total iron, in adult patients with iron deficiency anemia.
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine to what extend a treatment with the iron compounds Iron Isomaltoside 1000 or Ferric Carboxymaltose is leading to hypophosphatemia and to study the...
Intravenous iron preparations have been shown to be superior to oral iron and have largely replaced the treatment of anaemia in Northern countries. However, the socio-economic and medical ...
Iron deficiency is a common nutritional deficiency amongst women of childbearing age. Peri-partum iron deficiency anaemia is associated with significant maternal, foetal and infant morbidity. Current ...
Iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) is the most common form of anemia. Iron replacement therapy is an effective treatment, but oral and previously available intravenous (IV) formulations in Japan have disadv...
In non-dialysis-chronic kidney disease (CKD), iron deficiency is a frequent nutritional disorder due to either the greater tendency to occult gastrointestinal bleeding or to the chronic inflammatory s...
Iron deficiency anemia is a common clinical consequence for people who suffer from chronic kidney disease, especially those requiring dialysis. Intravenous (IV) iron therapy is a widely accepted safe ...
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.
The reaction of potassium ferrocyanide with ferric iron to yield a dark blue precipitate at the sites of the ferric iron. Used to determine ferric iron in tissues, particularly in the diagnosis of disorders of iron metabolism.
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)
