Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed an iron-deficient diet for 8 days. After this period, iron stores were repleted in three groups of animals by intravenous administration of iron dextran. In a second set of experiments, iron was administered in the same dose as Fe nitrilotriacetic acid complex. 12 h, 24 h and 48 h thereafter, the intestinal iron transfer in… CONTINUE READING
