[Utility of soluble transferrin receptor measurement for early diagnostic of iron deficiency in elderly hospitalized patients].


Diagnosis of iron deficiency is not easily performed in inflammatory situation as usually encountered in elderly hospitalized patients (>70 years old). At first, we determined serum soluble receptor transferrin (RsTf), RsTf/serum ferritin ratio (RsTf-F index) and biochemical and haematological values used to evaluate iron status, in iron-depleted subjects… (More)
