INTRODUCTION: Children with chronic respiratory disease (CRD) are at increased risk of iron deficiency and anemia, which is under-diagnosed. AIM: To describe the iron (Fe) status in children with CRD and to evaluate the effects of its prophylactic indication. METHOD: Prospective study of children with CRD and adequate Fe intake in the diet. At baseline we measured hemogram, C-reactive protein and Fe profile. Subsequently, those with normal plasma hemoglobin (Hb) were not supplemented with Fe (Group A) and those with iron deficiency anemia or at risk of developing it (group B) were supplemented...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Hyperferritinemia is a common finding in clinical practice. This condition can be congenital or acquired, although it is not always associated with iron overload. Genetic hyperferritinemia is associated with iron overload, hereditary hemochromatosis, or cataracts that progress without iron overload (hereditary hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome). Metabolic syndrome is associated with hyperferritinemia and mild iron overload, with no increase in transferrin saturation...

Celiac disease (CD) is a primarily digestive systemic disease triggered and maintained by the ingestion of gluten in the diet. Its has a wide clinical spectrum of manifestations, particularly varied in adult patients, in whom, because of their frequent negative serology and mild, nonspecific symptoms, there is a considerable delay in diagnosis. The intestinal lesion caused by CD leads to various deficiencies of nutrients, vitamins, and dietary minerals, with ferropenia, vitamin B12, folic acid, and fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies being especially frequent...

ARES is a multicenter, prospective study of the prevalence, management, and repercussions on the quality of life of anemia in renal transplant patients with a reduced renal function (creatinine clearance according to Cockcroft-Gault: </=60 and >15 mL/min). The frequency of factor deficiency and its relationship with anemia were analyzed at the baseline time of the study. Of the 500 patients included in the main study, valid data were available for iron metabolism in n = 419 microg/dL; folic acid, n = 205 ng/mL; and vitamin B12, n = 210 pg/mL...

UNLABELLED: Iron deficiency anemia of unknown origin is a frequent cause of anemia in which etiological diagnosis is often not achieved, despite currently available diagnostic techniques. Recent studies suggest that, in the absence of digestive tract lesions, Helicobacter pylori infection could be the cause of iron deficiency anemia, due to the alterations produced in gastric iron absorption. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether H. pylori eradication resolves iron deficiency anemia and removes the need for oral iron administration...

Iron deficiency and Plasmodium falciparum malaria are the two main causes of anemia in young children in region endemic for this disease. The impact on iron status of prophylactic oral iron supplementation (2 mg/kg/day from two to six months of age) and the duration of this effect were assessed in a group of 832 Tanzanian infants exposed to P. falciparum malaria. Iron parameters and red blood cell indices were assessed at 2, 5, 8, and 12 months of age. Infants who received iron supplements had a significantly lower prevalence of iron deficiency (P < 0...

BACKGROUND: The serum transferrin receptor (TfR) presents certain advantages over other parameters of cellular iron status because it does not vary in acute or chronic diseases. OBJECTIVE: To establish reference ranges of TfR in healthy children for our laboratory, to define the distribution of this variable in children with acute illness and in those with iron deficiency, and to evaluate the diagnostic yield of TfR, the transferrin-receptor/ferritin ratio (TfR/F) and the transferrin-receptor-ferritin index (TfR-F) in distinguishing ferropenic from infectious anemia...

There is some evidence of ferropenia correlating with neuroleptic malignant syndrome and catatonic symptoms. The aim of this prospective and naturalistic study was to investigate the implications of ferremia in patients undergoing an intramuscular injection treatment of Zuclopenthixol-acetate in Visceolo. We recruited 59 catatonic patients (33 females). Age, sex, psychiatric and somatic diagnoses, body mass index (BMI), dosage and duration of Zuclopenthixol-acetate medication and the timing of the changeover from intramuscular to oral prescription, the single dosage of Clopenthixol if initially coadministered, incidence, onset and duration of transient benign hyperthermia, iron, ferritin, transferrin and saturation values, and white and red blood cell counts as well as liver function and electrolytes were registered...

Gastric cancer continues to be the second cause of cancer-related mortality in the world. Surgery is the only potentially curative therapy, although the adverse effects of surgery are considerable and include digestive symptoms, loss of appetite and malnutrition. Our study included 45 patients subjected to gastrectomy who were under treatment at our unit during 2000. The data given here refer to their first visit following surgery. The most frequent complications were diarrhoea (31%), pain (29%) and early dumping (24%)...

OBJECTIVE: The evaluation of the RNA content in reticulocytes by means of flow cytometry allows us to differentiate three reticulocyte populations by their degree of maturity: LFR, MFR and HFR. We have studied the value of those reticulocyte subpopulations for the differential diagnosis in polycythemia. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We have studied 25 polycythemia patients, 12 of these were diagnosed of polycythemia vera (PV) and 13 of secondary polycythemia (PS). Reticulocytes and their different reticulocyte populations were automatically analyzed by flow cytometry using the Sysmex R-2000 analyzer (TOA Corp...

BACKGROUND: Fertile-aged women are a population group at special risk for developing ferropenia. In the periodic health care examinations, hemogram, among other tests, are included to detect the most advanced state of iron deficity, ferropenic anemia. Likewise, preanemic ferropenia presents a certain morbidity. The aim of this study was to analyze the cost-effectiveness of screening serum ferritin determination in health care examinations of fertile-aged women. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: An observational transversal study was carried out in 322 women in whom hemogram and serum ferritin were determined...

Twenty-three hemodialysis patients exposed to an accidental aluminum overload, showed increased erythropoietin requirements and decreased erythrocyte mean corpuscular volume (MCV). At the peak of the intoxication, MCV and plasma aluminum levels changed from unrelated (r = 0.02) to strongly related (r = 0.425) variables. The molar proportion of plasma aluminum to plasma iron increased dramatically (from 1:13.8 to 1:2.4). This significant increment in the aluminum/iron ratio made higher the relative offer of aluminum with respect to iron to the erythroid precursor cells...
