Sensitivity and specificity of transferrin saturation and serum ferritin as markers of iron status after intravenous iron dextran in hemodialysis patients.

Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the effect of intravenous (i.v.) iron dextran (i.d.) on hematocrit (Hct), transferrin saturation (TS), and serum ferritin (SF) in hemodialysis patients treated with a constant dose of erythropoietin (EPO). The sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values of SF and TS for monitoring i.d. therapy were also assessed… (More)
