Adequate body iron stores are crucial to assuring rapid and complete response to recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO). In the present study, markers of iron storage were examined in 27 patients with normochromic, normocytic anemia undergoing acute rHuEPO (150 to 300 U/kg t.i.w.) treatment for anemia. We calculated projected iron needed for new hemoglobin synthesis from the difference between initial and target hemoglobin concentrations, initial iron reserves available from initial serum… CONTINUE READING
