Previous communications from this laboratory (l-7) have demonstrated that swine maintained on a highly purified diet deficient in pyridoxine develop a severe anemia which is characterized by microcytosis, slight hypochromia, and an increase in polychromatophilia, reticulocytes, and nucleated red cells in the blood. There is a marked hyperferremia… CONTINUE READING
