Quantification of unlabelled non-haem iron absorption in human subjects: a pilot study.


A method for measuring unlabelled Fe absorption has been investigated in a pilot study using a simple mathematical model. The metabolism of newly absorbed Fe can be approximated as a single-compartment model with the sampled compartment being the plasma pool. Five female volunteers (aged 30-55 years) were recruited to participate in the pilot study. After a… (More)
