Relation between iron content of serum ferritin and clinical status factors extracted by factor analysis in patients with hyperferritinemia.

OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to develop a new technique for determination of iron content of serum ferritin (ICF, micromol Fe/mg protein) and to investigate relations between ICF and clinical status in patients with hyperferritinemia. METHODS ICF values were determined by a combination of immunoprecipitation of ferritin and direct colorimetric… (More)
