Screening for iron overload using transferrin saturation.


People with parenchymal iron overload exhibit an elevated serum iron concentration and a raised transferrin (TIBC) saturation early in the course of the disease. They can therefore be detected by simple laboratory tests before organ damage has occurred. In this study running for 2 months, 10512 samples from approximately 8750 patients and blood donors were… (More)
