The value of soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR) detected in serum is closely related to erythroid TfR turnover rate. An increased erythropoietic activity causes an increase in the sTfR level. Therefore, it is a useful test for monitoring the erythropoiesis. In this study, a new immunoturbidimetric method for automated measurement of sTfR was evaluated for(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the serum transferrin receptor (sTfR) level in patients with Hb-E-beta-thalassaemia attending a paediatric haematology clinic. METHODS Sixty-four patients with Hb-E-beta-thalassaemia aged 2.9-10.8 years were attending a paediatric haematology clinic at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand. Circulating transferrin(More)
The serum transferrin receptor (sTfR) concentration is an individual reflects of the extent of erythropoietic activity, and is a useful marker for monitoring erythropoiesis. Malaria is an important tropical disease with evidence of ineffective erythropoiesis. Although there have been previous reports concerning sTfR changes in malaria, these were(More)
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is a viral pathogen that causes exanthem subitum in children. It has also been identified as the cause of life-threatening illness in immunocompromised pediatric patients and transplant recipients. We undertook a serological study of HHV-6 IgM and IgG antibody among 29 children (12 females and 17 males) with β-thalassemia/ HbE(More)
