[Findings in relation to serum and urinary iron in heterozygotic beta-thalassemia].

Abstract

Iron status (expressed as serum ferritin and iron levels) has been compared in normal and in heterozygous beta-thalassemic subjects. A higher serum ferritin concentration has been found in beta-thalassemic males, showing, therefore, a shift towards super-normal values of the balance between tissue iron and serum ferritin levels. In beta-thalassemic subjects… (More)
