The quantitative determination of iron kinetics and hemoglobin synthesis in anemia of cirrhosis studied with59Fe


Turnover of plasma iron, kinetics of iron through the body compartements, hemoglobin synthesis, red cell half life and mean effective erythron maturation time were studied, by using Fe59, in 10 normal subjects and 10 cirrhotic patients. Iron turnover and hemoglobin synthesis were significantly raised, but not sufficiently to compensate the red cell life… (More)
