Cloning and characterization of a maize cytochrome-b5 reductase with Fe3+-chelate reduction capability. (1/1144)

We previously purified an NADH-dependent Fe3+-chelate reductase (NFR) from maize roots with biochemical features of a cytochrome-b5 reductase (b5R) [Sparla, Bagnaresi, Scagliarini and Trost (1997) FEBS Lett. 414, 571-575]. We have now cloned a maize root cDNA that, on the basis of sequence information, calculated parameters and functional assay, codes for NFR. Maize NFR has 66% and 65% similarity to mammal and yeast b5R respectively. It has a deduced molecular mass of 31.17 kDa and a pI of 8.53. An uncharged region is observed at its N-terminus but no myristoylation consensus site is present. Taken together, these results, coupled with previous biochemical evidence, prove that NFR belongs to the b5R class and document b5R from a plant at the molecular level for the first time. We have also identified a putative Arabidopsis thaliana NFR gene. Its organization (nine exons) closely resembles mammalian b5Rs. Several NFR isoforms are expected to exist in maize. They are probably not produced by alternative translational mechanisms as occur in mammals, because of specific constraints observed in the maize NFR cDNA sequence. In contrast with yeast and mammals, tissue-specific and various subcellular localizations of maize b5R isoforms could result from differential expression of the various members of a multigene family. The first molecular characterization of a plant b5R indicates an overall remarkable evolutionary conservation for these versatile reductase systems. In addition, the well-characterized Fe3+-chelate reduction capabilities of NFR, in addition to known Fe3+-haemoglobin reduction roles for mammal b5R isoforms, suggest further and more generalized roles for the b5R class in endocellular iron reduction.  (+info)

Down regulation by iron of prostaglandin E2 production by human synovial fibroblasts. (2/1144)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect of iron on the prostaglandin (PG) E2 production by human synovial fibroblasts in vitro. METHODS: Human synovial fibroblasts were isolated from synovial tissue of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA) patients and cultured in medium. Synovial fibroblasts were stimulated by human recombinant interleukin (IL) 1 beta (0.1-10 ng/ml) with or without ferric citrate (Fe-citrate, 0.01-1 mM). The amount of PGE2 in the culture medium was measured by an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. RESULTS: The production of PGE2 by the synovial fibroblasts was increased by stimulation with IL1 beta at all concentrations tested. Fe-citrate but not sodium citrate (Na-citrate) down regulated the production of PGE2 by the synovial fibroblasts, both with and without stimulation by IL1 beta. Fe-citrate inhibited the spontaneous PGE2 production by the cells in a dose dependent manner, and a maximum inhibition by Fe-citrate was observed at the concentration of 0.1 mM with IL1 beta stimulation. The down regulation by iron was reversed by the co-addition of desferrioxamine (100 micrograms/ml), an iron chelator. CONCLUSION: Iron down regulates the PGE2 production by synovial fibroblasts in vitro.  (+info)

Salmonella typhimurium encodes a putative iron transport system within the centisome 63 pathogenicity island. (3/1144)

Upon entry into the host, Salmonella enterica strains are presumed to encounter an iron-restricted environment. Consequently, these bacteria have evolved a variety of often-redundant high-affinity acquisition systems to obtain iron in this restricted environment. We have identified an iron transport system that is encoded within the centisome 63 pathogenicity island of Salmonella typhimurium. The nucleotide composition of this locus is significantly different from that of the rest of this pathogenicity island, suggesting a different ancestry and a mosaic structure for this region of the S. typhimurium chromosome. This locus, designated sit, consists of four open reading frames which encode polypeptides with extensive homology to the yfe ABC iron transport system of Yersinia pestis, as well as other ABC transporters. The sitA gene encodes a putative periplasmic binding protein, sitB encodes an ATP-binding protein, and sitC and sitD encode two putative permeases (integral membrane proteins). This operon is capable of complementing the growth defect of the enterobactin-deficient Escherichia coli strain SAB11 in iron-restricted minimal medium. Transcription of the sit operon is repressed under iron-rich growth conditions in a fur-dependent manner. Introduction of a sitBCD deletion into wild-type S. typhimurium resulted in no apparent growth defect in either nutrient-rich or minimal medium and no measurable virulence phenotype. These results further support the existence of redundant iron uptake systems in S. enterica.  (+info)

Characterization of exochelins of the Mycobacterium bovis type strain and BCG substrains. (4/1144)

Pathogenic mycobacteria must acquire iron in the host in order to multiply and cause disease. To do so, they release abundant quantities of siderophores called exochelins, which have the capacity to scavenge iron from host iron-binding proteins and deliver it to the mycobacteria. In this study, we have characterized the exochelins of Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine and occasionally of human tuberculosis, and the highly attenuated descendant of M. bovis, bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG), widely used as a vaccine against human tuberculosis. The M. bovis type strain, five substrains of M. bovis BCG (Copenhagen, Glaxo, Japanese, Pasteur, and Tice), and two strains of virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis all produce the same set of exochelins, although the relative amounts of individual exochelins may differ. Among these mycobacteria, the total amount of exochelins produced is greatest in M. tuberculosis, intermediate in M. bovis, and smallest in M. bovis BCG.  (+info)

Ferrioxamine-mediated Iron(III) utilization by Salmonella enterica. (5/1144)

Utilization of ferrioxamines as sole sources of iron distinguishes Salmonella enterica serotypes Typhimurium and Enteritidis from a number of related species, including Escherichia coli. Ferrioxamine supplements have therefore been used in preenrichment and selection media to increase the bacterial growth rate while selectivity is maintained. We characterized the determinants involved in utilization of ferrioxamines B, E, and G by S. enterica serotype Typhimurium by performing siderophore cross-feeding bioassays. Transport of all three ferric siderophores across the outer membrane was dependent on the FoxA receptor encoded by the Fur-repressible foxA gene. However, only the transport of ferrioxamine G was dependent on the energy-transducing protein TonB, since growth stimulation of a tonB strain by ferrioxamines B and E was observed, albeit at lower efficiencies than in the parental strain. Transport across the inner membrane was dependent on the periplasmic binding protein-dependent ABC transporter complex comprising FhuBCD, as has been reported for other hydroxamate siderophores of enteric bacteria. The distribution of the foxA gene in the genus Salmonella, as indicated by DNA hybridization studies and correlated with the ability to utilize ferrioxamine E, was restricted to subspecies I, II, and IIIb, and this gene was absent from subspecies IIIa, IV, VI, and VII (formerly subspecies IV) and Salmonella bongori (formerly subspecies V). S. enterica serotype Typhimurium mutants with either a transposon insertion or a defined nonpolar frameshift (+2) mutation in the foxA gene were not able to utilize any of the three ferrioxamines tested. A strain carrying the nonpolar foxA mutation exhibited a significantly reduced ability to colonize rabbit ileal loops compared to the foxA+ parent. In addition, a foxA mutant was markedly attenuated in mice inoculated by either the intragastric or intravenous route. Mice inoculated with the foxA mutant were protected against subsequent challenge by the foxA+ parent strain.  (+info)

Role of free radicals in the pathogenesis of lipid-induced glomerulosclerosis in rats. (6/1144)

BACKGROUND: We examined whether a high-cholesterol (HC) diet causes glomerulosclerosis in rats, and investigated the role of free radicals and lipid peroxidation in lipid-induced glomerulosclerosis. METHODS: The rats were given a normal diet, a HC diet, or a HC diet with antioxidants and radical scavengers. Serum levels of lipid, lipid peroxide (LOOH), urinary excretion of protein (UP), and urinary norepinephrine excretion (UNE) were measured. The glomerular sclerosing score was used to evaluate the renal injury. RESULTS: Blood pressure, total cholesterol, and LOOH were increased by a HC diet, as were UP and UNE. The HC diet induced renal injury. Treatment with superoxide dismutase, dimetylthiourea as a scavenger of hydroxyl radical (OH.), defferoxamine masilate as an iron chelator, or vitamin E inhibited the increases in blood pressure, LOOH, UP, and UNE, whereas total cholesterol was not affected. The production of superoxide anion (O2-.) by neutrophil and LOOH in the kidney was increased, and superoxide dismutase and hydrogen peroxide in the kidney were decreased. Almost all of these changes were attenuated by vitamin E; however, the O2-. production was not inhibited. OH. was increased by the HC diet, and it was normalized with the treatments. Furthermore, the sclerosing score was partially suppressed by the treatments. Ferric iron was stained in the proximal tubulus, and it was not observed in the treated rats. CONCLUSIONS: The data suggest that lipid peroxidation is involved in the pathogenesis of lipid-induced glomerulosclerosis and that O2-. and OH. may play a role in the process.  (+info)

The haemin storage (Hms+) phenotype of Yersinia pestis is not essential for the pathogenesis of bubonic plague in mammals. (7/1144)

The haemin storage (Hms+) phenotype of Yersinia pestis enables this bacillus to form greenish/brown or red colonies on haemin or Congo Red agar plates, respectively, at 26 but not 37 degrees C. Escherichia coli strains that contain mutations in genes essential for siderophore biosynthesis, porphyrin generation and/or haemin transport remain unable to utilize exogenous haemin as a nutritional iron or porphyrin source when transformed with the cloned Y. pestis hmsHFRS locus. Further physiological analysis of the Hms+ phenotype of Y. pestis strain KIM6+ suggests that the haemin and inorganic iron stored by the Hms system was not used nutritionally under subsequent iron-deficient conditions. In vitro analysis of the bactericidal effects of hydrogen peroxide, superoxide and nitric oxide showed that Hms- Y. pestis cells, in certain cases, were more susceptible than the Hms+ parent cells to these reactive oxygen species at 26 and/or 37 degrees C. In adherence assays, a higher percentage of Hms+ cells were associated with HeLa cells and normal human neutrophils, compared to Hms- cells. However, the Hms+ phenotype did not provide any additional protection against the killing effects of neutrophils. Finally, LD50 analysis in subcutaneously infected mice showed that an Hms- strain was slightly more virulent than Hms+, indicating that the Hms phenotype is not essential for the pathogenesis of bubonic plague in mammals.  (+info)

Iron dependence of tryptophan hydroxylase activity in RBL2H3 cells and its manipulation by chelators. (8/1144)

Tryptophan hydroxylase requires Fe2+ for in vitro enzyme activity. In this study, the intracellular activity of tryptophan hydroxylase was assessed by applying 3-hydroxybenzylhydrazine (NSD-1015), an inhibitor of aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylase, to monolayer cultures of RBL2H3 cells, a serotonin producing mast cell line. The effect of manipulating intracellular 'free' iron levels on enzyme activity was analyzed by administration of iron chelators. Desferrioxamine (DFO) suppressed the intracellular enzyme activity. Salicylaldehyde isonicotinoyl hydrazone (SIH) also suppressed enzyme activity, but stimulated it when administered in the Fe-bound form. Hemin also stimulated enzyme activity, which progressively increased over several hours to more than sixfold the initial level. DFO and SIH inhibited the hemin stimulatory effect when administered simultaneously with hemin. Both suppression and stimulation with these chelators took place without a significant decrease or increase in the amount of enzyme. These results indicate that there was an inadequate supply of Fe2+ in the cells to support full activity of tryptophan hydroxylase.  (+info)

Approximately 60-80% of patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) present with symptomatic anemia and, of these, 80-90% will require red blood cell (RBC) transfusions as supportive therapy.1,2 Excess transfusional iron causes accumulation of labile plasma iron (LPI), the pathological form of non-transferrin-bound iron. Labile plasma iron is redox active and is rapidly taken up by cells, leading to a rise in the labile iron pool (LIP)3,4 and catalyzing generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS).5 The ensuing oxidative stress6 and associated decrease in antioxidants such as reduced glutathione (GSH) cause oxidation of lipids, proteins and DNA, cell death and organ damage. Iron overload has thus been shown to affect morbidity and mortality in transfusion-dependent myelodysplastic syndrome patients.7. Here we report results from a 3-month, single-arm, open-label trial conducted at five centers in Israel. The effects of deferasirox (Exjade®), a once-daily oral iron chelator, on parameters of ...
Background Thalassaemia is a hereditary anaemia due to a defect in the production of haemoglobin. Regular red blood cell transfusions are needed, particularly for the severe form of the disease, thalassaemia major. This results in iron overload. Since the human body has no means of actively getting rid of excessive iron, drug treatment (iron-chelating drugs) is needed. Several years ago, a newer oral iron chelator, deferasirox, was introduced.. Review question Does deferasirox offer advantages compared to placebo or to the other iron chelators deferoxamine or deferiprone in people with thalassaemia with regard to effectiveness and safety?. Study characteristics The evidence is current to 12 August 2016. This updated review includes 16 randomised controlled studies (1807 participants) containing 20 comparisons of deferasirox versus another treatment.. In people with transfusion-dependent thalassaemia, two studies compared deferasirox with placebo and nine studies (1251 participants) compared ...

Deferasirox and its iron complex were very highly bound to plasma proteins in all the investigated species. The very high binding to plasma protein is in line with the predominant distribution of deferasirox and Fe-[ICL670]2 into the plasma fraction of blood. The very high protein binding in combination with a small to moderate (deferasirox, determined for rat and human) or small (Fe-[ICL670]2, determined for rat) volume of distribution (Galanello et al., 2003) (Novartis, unpublished data; H. Wiegand, A. Schweitzer, F. Waldmeier, G. Bruin, T. Falle, and G. Gross, manuscript in preparation) emphasizes the relevance of the plasma protein binding for the distribution, the systemic exposure, and the pharmacokinetics of deferasirox and its iron complex. For iron chelators, a reasonably high systemic exposure and lasting presence in plasma should allow for efficient protection against the harmful effects of circulating nontransferrin-bound plasma iron (Hershko et al., 1998). The reported protein ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Deferasirox (Exjade®) significantly improves cardiac T2* in heavily iron-overloaded patients with β-thalassemia major. AU - Pathare, Anil. AU - Taher, Ali. AU - Daar, Shahina. PY - 2010/4. Y1 - 2010/4. N2 - Noninvasive measurement of tissue iron levels can be assessed using T2* magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify and monitor patients with iron overload. This study monitored cardiac siderosis using T2* MRI in a cohort of 19 heavily iron-overloaded patients with β-thalassemia major receiving iron chelation therapy with deferasirox over an 18-month period. Overall, deferasirox therapy significantly improved mean ± standard deviation cardiac T2* from a baseline of 17.2±10.8 to 21.5±12.8 ms (+25.0%; P=0.02). A concomitant reduction in median serum ferritin from a baseline of 5,497 to 4,235 ng/mL (-23.0%; P=0.001), and mean liver iron concentration from 24.2±9.0 to 17.6± 12.9 mg Fe/g dry weight (-27.1%; P=0.01) was also seen. Improvements were seen in patients with ...
Cardiac iron overload causes most deaths in β-thalassemia major. The efficacy of deferasirox in reducing or preventing cardiac iron overload was assessed in 192 patients with β-thalassemia in a 1-year prospective, multicenter study. The cardiac iron reduction arm (n = 114) included patients with magnetic resonance myocardial T2* from 5 to 20 ms (indicating cardiac siderosis), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 56percent or more, serum ferritin more than 2500 ng-mL, liver iron concentration more than 10 mg Fe-g dry weight, and more than 50 transfused blood units. The prevention arm (n = 78) included otherwise eligible patients whose myocardial T2* was 20 ms or more. The primary end point was the change in myocardial T2* at 1 year. In the cardiac iron reduction arm, the mean deferasirox dose was 32.6 mg-kg per day. Myocardial T2* (geometric mean ± coefficient of variation) improved from a baseline of 11.2 ms (± 40.5percent) to 12.9 ms (± 49.5percent) (+16percent; P .001). LVEF (mean ...
Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) heart iron assessment has been an important advance in the follow-up of patients with transfusion-dependent anemias.1 Few longitudinal data are available on the natural history of cardiac iron overload.2 We refer this letter to the manuscript by Wood et al.3 in which they recently reported that in pediatric patients with thalassemia major (TM) no detectable cardiac iron overload was observed in children under the age of 9.5 years. Another study showed that cardiac iron loading in patients with increased transfusion requirements occurred only after at least 13 years of chronic transfusion therapy.4 These facts are important in determining the appropriate age at which to start screening for increased iron in the heart with an expensive technique such as MRI. However, as published in recent guidelines,5 it has been hypothesized that these observations should only be true if chelation therapy has started early and been received regularly as well as there ...
BACKGROUND: Thalassaemia major is a genetic disease characterised by a reduced ability to produce haemoglobin. Management of the resulting anaemia is through transfusions of red blood cells. Repeated transfusions result in excessive accumulation of iron in the body (iron overload), removal of which is achieved through iron chelation therapy. A commonly used iron chelator, deferiprone, has been found to be pharmacologically efficacious. However, important questions exist about the efficacy and safety of deferiprone compared to another iron chelator, desferrioxamine. OBJECTIVES: To summarise data from trials on the clinical efficacy and safety of deferiprone and to compare the clinical efficacy and safety of deferiprone for thalassaemia with desferrioxamine. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Groups Haemoglobinopathies Trials Register, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Biological Abstracts, ZETOC, Current Controlled Trials and bibliographies of relevant publications. We contacted the manufacturers of deferiprone and
BACKGROUND: Most patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) require transfusions at the risk of iron overload and associated organ damage, and death. Emerging evidence indicates that iron chelation therapy (ICT) could reduce mortality and improve survival in transfusion-dependent MDS patients, especially those classified as International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS) Low or Intermediate-1 (Low/Int-1).
This extension study evaluated the efficacy and long-term safety of deferasirox (ICL 670) in patients with β-thalassemia and transfusional iron overload who had
The color image of a selected segment of the ONL was converted to a grayscale image, and a MATLAB built-in function was utilized to extract the part of the image within the contour, thus extracting the image of the region of interest. Contrast-limited adaptive histogram equalization was performed to enhance the contrast of images (emphasize differences between white and nonwhite areas) and highlight the cell edges in the grayscale image. To enable separating photoreceptor nuclei from the rest of the background, the procedure converted the images into black-and-white images by designating all pixels above a threshold as white. In grayscale images, the color of each pixel was described as a number that represents a level of gray between 0 and 255 (0 corresponds to black and 255 to white). On the other hand, black-and-white images used only two color levels to describe the color of each pixel-white or black. The black-and-white (i.e., binary) picture was then filtered to remove noise pixels-all ...
Anemia leading to transfusion dependency (TD) and iron overload (IO) is commonly observed in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). In MDS, TD and IO have been retrospectively associated with inferior survival and worse clinical outcomes, including cardiac, hepatic and endocrine dysfunction, and, in some analyses, with leukemic progression and infectious complications. Although suggested by retrospective analyses, clear prospective documentation of the beneficial effects of iron chelation therapy (ICT) on organ function and survival in MDS patients with TD and IO is currently lacking.
BACKGROUND: Relatively little is known about endocrine function, bone mineral health, and growth during oral iron chelation therapy in β-thalassemia major patients (TM) on treatment with deferasirox. AIMS OF THE STUDY: To study the frequency of endocrine complications, IGF-1 levels and final adult standing height (FA-Ht) in patients with BTM in two groups of adult patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The first group (Group A; 15 patients, 6 females and 9 males) received oral iron chelation therapy (OIC) with deferasirox for 6 years before puberty; the second group (Group B;40 patients) attained the FA-Ht before the use of OIC (iron chelation therapy with deferoxamine (DFO) given subcutaneously, since the age of 2 years ...
This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: To identify and assess the effectiveness of interventions to improve adherence to iron chelation therapy compared to standard care in people with SCD or thalassaemia including: identifying and assessing the effectiveness of different types of interventions (psychological and psychosocial, educational, medication interventions, or multi-component interventions);identifying and assessing the effectiveness of interventions specific to different age groups (children, adolescents, adults).
Iron plays a critical role in host-parasite interactions, and iron chelators have been demonstrated to serve as effective adjunct therapeutic agents against malaria. The effects of the parenteral iron chelator deferoxamine (DFO) on the growth of rat-derived Pneumocystis carinii were studied in a human fibroblast cell culture model and in two in vivo models of experimental infection. In addition, the effects of the investigational oral iron chelator CP20 and its 3-hydroxypyridin-4-one analogs CP51, CP94, and CP96 on the growth of P. carinii in vitro were assessed. DFO suppressed the growth of P. carinii in vitro in a dose-dependent manner, and daily injections of DFO markedly reduced the intensity of P. carinii infection in both mice and rats. Cell cultures treated with iron chelators that are administered orally to humans also showed substantial P. carinii growth inhibition. Reduction of P. carinii numbers after iron chelator therapy correlated with alterations in P. carinii morphology, as ...

Background: Iron is an essential trace element in cell proliferation. Several investigations demonstrate that iron deprivation inhibits cell proliferation. However, the impact of iron on telomerase activity of activated lymphocytes remains unexplained to date. Objective: In this study, the effect of iron on the proliferation and telomerase activity of lymphocytes stimulated by phytohemagglutinin (PHA) were investigated. Methods: Iron loading was performed by incubating peripheral blood mononuclear cells in 500μM FeSO4.7H2O for 24 h and iron chelation was done by exposing cells to desferrioxamine, a potent iron chelator. The effects of silymarin, a flavonoid with both antioxidant and iron chelating activities, on the proliferation and telomerase activity of PHAactivated lymphocytes were also compared with desferrioxamine. Proliferation and telomerase activity were assessed using BrdU incorporation assay and Telomeric Repeat Amplification Protocol (TRAP), respectively. Results: The proliferations of

Italys Chiesi Global Rare Diseases has gained approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the expanded use of its sickle cell disease (SCD) treatment Ferriprox. Ferriprox (deferiprone) is now approved in the US for the treatment of transfusional iron overload due to SCD or other anaemias in adult and paediatric patients aged three years or older.. The new approval expands the use of Ferriprox beyond its other indication, where it is approved to treat patients with transfusional iron overload due to thalassemia syndromes.. In the US, SCD affects approximately 100,000 people and is associated with a lower life expectancy of over 20 years compared with the general population.. Ferriprox, a synthetic and orally active iron-chelating agent, is designed to penetrate cell membranes and remove toxic iron from organ tissues and extracellular fluids.. In a study comparing the efficacy of Ferriprox to deferoxamine in patients with SCD and other transfusion-dependent anaemias, Chiesis drug ...
Deferiprone (tradenames include Ferriprox) is a drug that chelates iron and is used to treat iron overload in thalassaemia major. It was first approved for use in treating thalassaemia major in 1994 and had been licensed for use in Europe and Asia for many years while awaiting approval in Canada and the United States. On October 14, 2011, it was approved for use in the US under the FDAs accelerated approval program. Deferiprone was at the center of a protracted struggle between Nancy Olivieri, a Canadian haematologist and researcher, and the Hospital for Sick Children and the pharmaceutical company Apotex, that started in 1996 and delayed approval of the drug in North America. Olivieris data suggested deferiprone leads to progressive hepatic fibrosis. Deferoxamine Deferasirox Savulescu, J (2004). Thalassaemia major: The murky story of deferiprone.

Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive disease, with a poor response to the currently available treatments, including the standard gemcitabine (Jemal et al., 2009). To this end, we examined a new class of thiosemicarbazones that are designed to target the crucial nutrient iron (Richardson et al., 2009). Thiosemicarbazones have been found to have potent and selective activity against a range of different tumors (Yuan et al., 2004; Kalinowski and Richardson, 2005; Whitnall et al., 2006). In fact, these agents were also demonstrated to overcome chemoresistance (Whitnall et al., 2006), which is an appreciable problem in the treatment of pancreatic cancer (Custodio et al., 2009). However, the efficacy of these novel thiosemicarbazones against pancreatic cancer has not been assessed previously.. One of the first indicators that thiosemicarbazones and other iron chelators may be a suitable strategy for the treatment of pancreatic cancer was the finding that they up-regulate the growth and metastasis ...

(* medical student).. Aim: To determine the efficay and safety of desferasirox in PD patients.. Background: A 54 year old male with b-Thalassemia major developed ESRD and was managed with CAPD. Despite being untransfusable, he required concomitant management of iron overload. The iron chelator Deferasirox (Exjade) was administered orally. There was concern that excretion of iron via the peritoneal dialysate may raise the risk of iron-dependent infections (Yersinia and Rhizopus).. Methods: Whilst receiving Exjade 1000mg /day, a total collection of 12.7L of peritoneal dialysate was collected over a 24 hour period. The dialysate total iron levels were measured by ICP-mass spectrometry at 0.46mmol/L which equates to 0.33mg of Fe in total. Over a 6 month period his serum ferritin fell from 3869ug/l to 1545ug/l. There were ...

Participants were randomized into two groups: 290 received deferoxamine infusions five days a week; 296 drank deferasirox dissolved in water each day before breakfast. Drug dosages were determined by each patients liver iron concentration (LIC) level; those with higher levels received increased doses. Since LIC values above 7 mg Fe/g dw are associated with increased morbidity and mortality, the primary goal of the trial was to reduce LIC levels in those with high values and maintain LIC levels in those with low values. At the beginning of the study, more than two-thirds of the participants had at-risk LIC levels ...
60 to 70 million Americans suffer form heart attacks. Over 550,000 will die this year from heart attacks and the numbers are increasing. The cost of treating heart attacks in the US is estimated at 50-60 billion dollars a year. Conventional treatments for heart disease have been, by pass surgery and angioplasty. These life saving treatments have been recognized by the medical industry the standard necessary procedures.. Chelation therapy has been known about for over 60 years, The medical industry prefers not to recognize a procedure that has the ability to prevent much unnecessary surgery and suffering. Heart disease is a very big and profitable business. Its very easy to pay the overhead on a large medical facility when the operating rooms are constantly filled with heart patients.. Chelation therapy as practiced in Florida has been proven to increase blood flow and to remove plaque build up in the arteries. Chelation therapy is a safe and effective method of eliminating scale or plaque, that ...
Several authors of books on rhododendron culture mention the use of iron chelates in combating iron deficiency. Ed Reiley in Success with Rhododendrons and Azaleas says that iron deficiency is often the result of high pH (alkaline soil) and that iron chelates may be used as a quick, temporary solution to the problem but recommends acidifying the soil as a long-term solution. Kenneth Cox in Rhododendrons, A Care Manual suggests that when leaves turn yellow there may be iron deficiency and suggests trying a small amount of iron chelates on a few plants to see if the problem disappears. Clement Gray Bowers in Rhododendrons and Azaleas also mentions that iron chelates may help with iron deficiency as does David Leach in Rhododendrons of the World. Peter Cox in The Cultivation of Rhododendrons also recommends iron chelate for iron deficiency but warns that overdoses may cause withered and curled leaves ...
Top up your iron levels. The body does not produce iron so iron is provided through dietary intake. Eating an iron-rich diet is the best way to maintain sufficient iron levels. However, there are times when the body has an increased demand for iron or when a persons diet is not able to provide them with all the iron they need. In these cases, an iron supplement can be beneficial.. Spatone® pur-Absorb Iron is a unique 100% natural iron containing water sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park. Since pur-Absorb has a higher absorption rate than many traditional iron supplements, the right amount of iron can be delivered in a lower, more gentle dose. A lower dose of iron means you are less likely to experience side effects. Its easy. LESS is more. When consuming a lower dose of iron like pur-Absorb, side effects often associated with conventional iron supplements such as constipation, stomach irritation or headaches become far less likely. Each highly absorbable packet of ...
Excessive iron intake can also cause problems, as it is stored in the body. Too much iron in the tissues and organs leads to the production of free radicals and increases the need for vitamin E. There is a differentiation between plant and animal sources of iron. In animal sources, iron is often attached to proteins called haeme proteins, and referred to as haeme iron. In plant sources, iron is not attached to haeme proteins, and is classified as non-haeme iron. Haeme iron is typically absorbed at a rate of 7-35%, and non-haeme iron at a rate of 2-20%. Good food sources of iron include: - haeme iron: liver, red meat, shellfish, egg yolks - non-heame iron: legumes (lentils, beans, chickpeas), dark leafy greens (spinach, swiss chard), dried fruit (prunes, apricots) Vitamin C can increase the absorption of iron by as much as 30%, so aim to include foods rich in this essential nutrient if you are iron deficient.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Molecular mechanisms and regulation of iron transport. AU - Chung, Jayong. AU - Wessling-Resnick, Marianne. AU - Enns, Caroline. PY - 2003/1/1. Y1 - 2003/1/1. N2 - Iron homeostasis is primarily maintained through regulation of its transport. This review summarizes recent discoveries in the field of iron transport that have shed light on the molecular mechanisms of dietary iron uptake, pathways for iron efflux to and between peripheral tissues, proteins implicated in organellar transport of iron (particularly the mitochondrion), and novel regulators that have been proposed to control iron assimilation. The transport of both transferrin-bound and nontransferrin-bound iron to peripheral tissues is discussed. Finally, the regulation of iron transport is also considered at the molecular level, with posttranscriptional, transcriptional, and posttranslational control mechanisms being reviewed.. AB - Iron homeostasis is primarily maintained through regulation of its transport. This ...
Several additional nonspecific studies may correlate with toxic clinical course, including elevated serum glucose (,150 mcg/dL) and leukocytosis (,15,000/mm3), but these tests are not sensitive or specific enough to have clinical utility.. In iron toxicity, iron exceeds total iron binding capacity (TIBC); however, measurement of TIBC and the ratio of iron to TIBC are not recommended because of limitations in the methodology. In the TIBC assay, excess iron is added to serum to bind all available iron-binding sites. Then excess unbound iron is removed by an absorbent material prior to measurement of bound iron. In the presence of excess endogenous iron, this material may be insufficient to remove all iron, leading to a false increase in TIBC.. DFO binds free iron, creating ferrioxamine, which is excreted in urine. Urine containing ferrioxamine may be brick orange or vin rose color. DFO challenge tests consist of administering an intramuscular dose of DFO and using the appearance of a vin rose ...

Decreased serum and increased hepatic iron uptake is the hallmark of acute-phase (AP) response. Iron uptake is controlled by iron transport proteins such as transferrin receptors (TfRs) and lipocalin 2 (LCN-2). The current study aimed to understand the regulation of iron uptake in primary culture hepatocytes in the presence/absence of AP mediators. Rat hepatocytes were stimulated with different concentrations of iron alone (0.01, 0.1, 0.5 mM) and AP cytokines (interleukin 6 [IL-6], IL-1β, tumor necrosis factor α) in the presence/absence of iron (FeCl3: 0.1 mM). Hepatocytes were harvested at different time points (0, 6, 12, 24 h). Total mRNA and proteins were extracted for reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and Western blot. A significant iron uptake was detected with 0.1 mM iron administration with a maximum (133.37 ± 4.82 µg/g of protein) at 24 h compared with control and other iron concentrations. This uptake was further enhanced in the presence of AP cytokines with a ...
An iron test checks the amount of iron in the blood to see how well iron is metabolized in the body. Iron (Fe) is a mineral needed for hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. Iron is also needed for energy, good muscle and organ function.. About 70% of the bodys iron is bound to hemoglobin in red blood cells. The rest is bound to other proteins (transferrin in blood or ferritin in bone marrow) or stored in other body tissues. When red blood cells die, their iron is released and carried by transferrin to the bone marrow and to other organs such as the liver and spleen. In the bone marrow, iron is stored and used as needed to make new red blood cells.. The source of all the bodys iron is food, such as liver and other meat, eggs, fish, and leafy green vegetables.

An iron test checks the amount of iron in the blood to see how well iron is metabolized in the body. Iron (Fe) is a mineral needed for hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. Iron is also needed for energy, good muscle and organ function.. About 70% of the bodys iron is bound to hemoglobin in red blood cells. The rest is bound to other proteins (transferrin in blood or ferritin in bone marrow) or stored in other body tissues. When red blood cells die, their iron is released and carried by transferrin to the bone marrow and to other organs such as the liver and spleen. In the bone marrow, iron is stored and used as needed to make new red blood cells.. The source of all the bodys iron is food, such as liver and other meat, eggs, fish, and leafy green vegetables.

There are numerous benefits you can take advantage of if you are iron deficient. The primary focus of any iron supplement is to quickly get your iron levels back into the normal range. There are two major factors which will determine how fast you can accomplish this.. The first and the most obvious factor is how quickly you can absorb iron. Dont mix this up with your iron dosage. Research shows that iron comes in many different forms and each form has its own absorption limitations. So while taking a higher dose of one form might leave you thinking you are getting plenty of iron, the truth could be the opposite.. Furthermore, the diet which you follow greatly effects your iron abortion. Ingredients found in foods, beverages, and pretty much everything else you eat can either inhibit or improve your iron absorption. We know that vitamin C has a positive effect on iron, but at the same time, calcium has a negative effect.. The second factor is your ability to avoid the negative effects of iron. ...
