We report on a simple iron oxide (Venofer) labeling procedure of dental pulp mesenchymal stem cells (DP-MSCs) and DP-MSCs transduced with yeast cytosinedeaminase::uracilphosphoribosyltransferase (yCD::UPRT-DP-MSCs). Venofer is a drug approved for intravenous application to treat iron deficiency anemia in patients. Venofer labeling did not affect DP-MSCs or yCD::UPRT-DP-MSCs viability and growth kinetics. Electron microscopy of labeled cells showed internalized Venofer nanoparticles in endosomes. MRI relativity measurement of Venofer labeled DP-MSCs in a phantom arrangement revealed that 100 cells per 0...

CONTEXT: Severe iron deficiency requires intravenous iron supplementation to replenish iron stores. Intravenous iron sucrose has been used for decades for the treatment of anemia. New generic iron sucrose products are now marketed for the use in several countries and there is an ongoing discussion about the safety and efficacy of iron sucrose similars. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we compared the iron sucrose originator Venofer® and the generic iron sucrose AZAD (ISA) regarding bioavailability, toxicity and stability in human THP-1 cells and HepG2 cells...

Drug products containing iron oxide and hydroxide nanoparticles (INPs) are important for the treatment of iron deficiency anaemia. Pharmaceuticals prepared by the complexation of different kinds of INPs and carbohydrates have different physicochemical and biopharmaceutic characteristics. The increasing number of parenteral non-biological complex drugs (NBCD) containing iron requires physicochemical methods for characterization and enabling of cross comparisons. In this context the structure and the level of crystallinity of the iron phases may be connected to the in vitro and in vivo dissolution rates, which etiologically determine the therapeutic and toxic effects...

Intravenous polynuclear iron formulations are vital components in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia associated with chronic kidney disease as well as other diseases associated with gastro-intestinal and cardio-vascular system. Intravenous iron preparations consist of iron-carbohydrate nanoparticles with iron-oxyhydroxide as a core covered by carbohydrate shell. These preparations should be very well characterized in terms of their physicochemical properties and pharmacological profile in order to establish safety and efficacy...

Deferrioxamine, a bacterial hydroxamic siderophore having high binding affinity for Fe(III), is used in its immobilized form, as self-assembled monolayer on Au, for accumulation and recognition of Fe(III) from the solution phase. The accumulated Fe(III) is detected via both active mode based on faradaic reduction current of Fe(III), and inactive mode based on impedimetric effect of accumulated Fe(III) against redox reaction of a suitable probe. Appropriate electrochemical techniques, square wave voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, are used for the transduction of analytical signals obtained by this sensor...

The treatment of iron deficiency anemia with polynuclear iron formulations is an established therapy in patients with chronic kidney disease but also in other disease areas like gastroenterology, cardiology, oncology, pre/post operatively and obstetrics' and gynecology. Parenteral iron formulations represent colloidal systems in the lower nanometer size range which have traditionally been shown to consist of an iron core surrounded by a carbohydrate shell. In this publication, we for the first time describe the novel matrix structure of iron isomaltoside 1000 which differs from the traditional picture of an iron core surrounded by a carbohydrate...

Controversy exists about the safety of the parenteral iron dextran products, Dexferrum and INFeD, which have been associated with rare, serious anaphylactic-type reactions. In the United States, their product labels carry boxed warnings of this adverse event; some have called for the withdrawal from marketing of the higher molecular weight Dexferrum. Between 2002 and 2007, sales of Dexferrum, INFeD, and iron gluconate Ferrlecit declined 32.5%, 21%, and 4.8%, respectively, while sales of iron sucrose Venofer increased 160%...
