Soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR) is reported to be a reliable marker for the diagnosis of iron deficiency, especially when iron metabolism is influenced by inflammatory disorders such as infection, chronic inflammation and cancer-related anemia. In the present multicenter study the analytical performance of a recently introduced, latex-enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay for the determination of soluble transferrin receptor (Tina quant [a] sTfR, Roche Diagnostics) on different fully… CONTINUE READING
