Iron overload might increase transplant-related mortality in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation
VHL of ferritin and TS ⩾100% at conditioning are associated with an increase in toxic deaths after transplant.

Low serum vitamin B‐12 is often found in HIV‐infected patients and it could be related to malabsorption, but clear megaloblastic abnormalities and treatment response could not be demonstrated.
Vitamin E serum levels in patients with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma
The serum α-tocopherol levels were determined in a group of 182 patients with hematological neoplasms: 87 lymphoid or myeloid leukemias, 65 lymphomas and 30 myelomas. The levels did not differ from…
Prevalence of high serum and red cell ferritin levels in HIV-infected patients.
It is suggested that, although inflammatory processes may explain high SF levels, if the authors also take in account RCF levels a possible association between iron overload and HIV infection might exist, and this may be worsened by AZT treatment.

Almost 50% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis have anemia and ACD is the most frequent, and patients with moderate to severe ACD are possible candidates for erythropoietin treatment.

Low serum levels of HP in HIV-1 positive patients could lead to the low levels of serum vitamin B12 frequently observed in this patient population, while the high levels of TC could merely represent a non-specific marker of inflammation (acute phase, reactant).
Serum erythropoietin and erythroid activity in vitamin B12 deficiency.
It is concluded that at least a portion of patients with vitamin B12 deficiency have serum erythropoietin levels that are inappropriately low for the degree of anemia.
