Iron stores in blood donors evaluated by serum ferritin.


Male and female blood donors were grouped according to their blood donations, and the iron stores were estimated by a two-site immunoradiometric assay for ferritin. Hb serum iron, serum transferrin and transferrin saturation were also measured. A remarkable low serum ferritin concentration was found in male donors, who had donated blood one or two times… (More)
