iv iron sucrose

Bettina Wurzinger, Peter König
Iron deficiency without anaemia is a widespread health problem that often remains undetected. In this context, neurological and psychopathological problems like fatigue and poor concentration are a major issue, but also in Restless-Legs-Syndrome (RLS) iron deficiency is a key element.The exact pathogenesis is often unknown, however, it is known that iron is involved in several very important metabolic processes in the human body. In particular when it comes to fatigue and RLS, it's assumed that reduced activity of tyrosine hydroxylase - a central iron-dependent element of dopamine synthesis - can lead to deficiencies...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Increasing evidence in adults demonstrates efficacy and safety of IV iron in inflammatory Bowel disease (IBD) associated iron deficiency anemia; however, evidence in pediatric patients is yet scarce and no previous study has included a long follow-up. This study aimed to evaluate safety and efficacy of IV iron (primary end point), and the need of re-treatment (secondary end point), in this setting. METHODS: Prospective recruitment (40 months); PCDAI determined before and after treatment; anemia defined according to WHO criteria; IV iron treatment included iron sucrose and ferric carboxymaltose...

Iron accumulation in the retina is associated with the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). IV iron is a common method to treat iron deficiency anemia in adults, and its retinal manifestations have not hitherto been identified. To assess whether IV iron formulations can be retina-toxic, we generated a mouse model for iron-induced retinal damage. Male C57BL/6J mice were randomized into groups receiving IV iron-sucrose (+Fe) or 30% sucrose (-Fe). Iron levels in neurosensory retina (NSR), retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), and choroid were assessed using immunofluorescence, quantitative PCR, and the Perls' iron stain...

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...

Intravenous iron preparations are typically classified as non-dextran-based or dextran/dextran-based complexes. The carbohydrate shell for each of these preparations is unique and is key in determining the various physicochemical properties, the metabolic pathway, and the immunogenicity of the iron-carbohydrate complex. As intravenous dextran can cause severe, antibody-mediated dextran-induced anaphylactic reactions (DIAR), the purpose of this study was to explore the potential of various intravenous iron preparations, non-dextran-based or dextran/dextran-based, to induce these reactions...

To explore the reactivity of patients with renal anemia (MHD) to erythropoietin (EPO) in maintenance hemodialysis (HD), 31 patients were enrolled in this study. According to the level of serum ferritin (SF), they were divided into two groups; one group received treatment using recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) and the other group was given iron sucrose. Taking terminal EPO dosage, terminal erythropoietin resistance index (ERI) and rate of change of ERI (ΔERII) as target indexes, the influence of SF level on dosage of EPO was evaluated after usage conditions of relevant substances in a 3-month period...

Menstruating women, with or without underlying bleeding disorders, are at increased risk for developing iron deficiency-related fatigue, even in the absence of anemia. Oral iron therapy has limitations which include poor absorption and non-adherence due to gastrointestinal side effects. We performed a prospective clinical trial of post-menarchal adolescent females with iron-deficiency with or without mild anemia and fatigue who received a standardized regimen of intravenous iron sucrose. The baseline mean (SD) hemoglobin was 11...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of iron deficiency with intravenous (i.v.) iron is a first-line strategy to improve anaemia of chronic kidney disease. Previous in vitro experiments demonstrated that different i.v. iron preparations inhibit differentiation of haematopoietic stem cells to monocytes, but their effect on monocyte differentiation to macrophages and mature dendritic cells (mDCs) has not been assessed. We investigated substance-specific effects of iron sucrose (IS), sodium ferric gluconate (SFG), ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) and iron isomaltoside 1000 (IIM) on monocytic differentiation to M1/M2 macrophages and mDCs...

INTRODUCTION: Reticulocyte hemoglobin equivalent (RET-He) is a new parameter for evaluating iron status. This study aims to assess diagnostic value and investigate RET-He as early predictor of response to intravenous iron supplementation. METHODS: Seventy-two regular hemodialysis patients at Adam Malik Hospital were studied from April to May 2011. RET-He was compared with conventional iron parameters for identification of iron deficiency. Fifteen patients with iron deficiency anemia were selected to receive 100 mg iron sucrose intravenous during every dialysis session (2x/weeks) for 4 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Anaemia and iron deficiency are common complications following post-bariatric abdominoplasty. Given the low oral absorbability of iron resulting from bariatric surgery, it has been hypothesised that postoperative intravenously administered iron supplementation could be used to treat anaemia and to prevent the development of iron deficiency in these patients. METHODS/DESIGN: In this multicentre open-label randomised clinical trial, 56 adult women undergoing post-bariatric anchor-line abdominoplasty will be allocated at a ratio of 1:1 for postoperative supplementation with two intravenously administered applications of 200 mg of iron saccharate or postoperative supplementation with 100 mg of iron polymaltose complex administered orally, twice a day for 8 weeks...

BACKGROUND: According to recent clinical trial data, correction of iron deficiency with intravenous (i.v.) iron has favorable outcomes on cardiac function. We evaluated whether i.v. iron treatment of anemic rats has favorable effect on the left ventricular (LV) performance and remodeling and the role of oxidative/nitrosative stress and inflammation in the process. METHODS: After weaning, Sprague-Dawley rats were fed low iron diet for 16weeks, after which the treatment group received five weekly doses of i...

New intravenous (IV) iron preparations should ideally be capable of delivering a wide dosing range to allow iron correction in a single or low number of visits, a rapid infusion (doses up to 1,000 mg must be administered over more than 15 minutes and doses exceeding 1,000 mg must be administered over 30 minutes or more), and minimal potential side effects including low catalytic/labile iron release with minimal risk of anaphylaxis. Furthermore, they should be convenient for the patient and health-care professional, and cost effective for the health-care system...

Understanding physicochemical properties of intravenous (IV) iron drug products is essential to ensure the manufacturing process is consistent and streamlined. The history of physicochemical characterization of IV iron complex formulations stretches over several decades, with disparities in iron core size and particle morphology as the major source of debate. One of the main reasons for this controversy is room temperature sample preparation artifacts, which affect accurate determination of size, shape and agglomeration/aggregation of nanoscale iron particles...
