4601. [Intake of an iron-supplemented milk formula as a preventive measure to avoid low iron status in 1-3 year-olds]. (Abstract)

of unmodified cow's milk for 4 months. Allocation was random and double-blind. Daily dietary intake was calculated by dietary evaluation, and iron nutritional status was assessed (hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, serum iron, ferritin, and transferrin).At enrollment, no anemia was found in either group, although hemoglobin concentration and hematocrit were significantly lower in the toddler formula group than (...) in the unmodified cow's milk group. However, these differences disappeared at the end of the intervention period. After 4 months, the toddler formula group showed significantly higher serum ferritin and lower serum transferrin concentrations than the cow's milk group.Intake of iron-supplemented toddler formula for 4 months in 1-3 year-olds is more effective in maintaining iron nutritional status than cow's milk.

in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial and were allocated to either a fortified or nonfortified beverage of similar taste and appearance. The beverage was provided at schools 6 d/wk for 12 mo. Concentrations of Hb and serum ferritin (sFt), retinol, zinc, and C-reactive protein were measured in venous blood samples at baseline, 6 mo, and 12 mo. In addition, weight, height, and mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) measurements were taken. The fortified beverage increased the Hb and sFt (...) and retinol concentrations at 6 mo (P < 0.01). Adolescent girls in the nonfortified beverage group were more likely to suffer from anemia (Hb <120 g/L), iron deficiency (sFt <12 microg/L), and low serum retinol concentrations (serum retinol <0.70 micromol/L) (OR = 2.04, 5.38, and 5.47, respectively; P < 0.01). The fortified beverage group had greater increases in weight, MUAC, and BMI over 6 mo (P < 0.01). Consuming the beverage for an additional 6 mo did not further improve the Hb concentration

4603. Iron status is an important cause of anemia in HIV-infected Tanzanian women but is not related to accelerated HIV disease progression. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Iron status is an important cause of anemia in HIV-infected Tanzanian women but is not related to accelerated HIV disease progression. In HIV-infected populations from developing countries, it is unclear what proportion of anemia is attributable to iron deficiency (ID) and whether high body iron stores worsen HIV disease progression. We therefore evaluated these research questions in 584 HIV-infected Tanzanian women. Hemoglobin (Hb), serum ferritin (SF), serum transferrin receptor (sTfR), and C

4 weeks. The other 20 patients received oral ferrous succinate, 200 mg three times per day, for 8 weeks. Hemoglobin, hematocrit, serum ferritin (SF) level, and transferrin saturation (TSAT) were assessed at baseline and then again after 2, 4, and 8 weeks of treatment.There were no differences between the IV and oral groups in terms of sex, age, duration of PD, mean dialysate dosage per day, erythropoietin dosage per week, or hematological parameters at baseline. After 4 and 8 weeks of treatment (...) maintained between 4 and 8 weeks in the IV group despite the decrease in dose frequency. There were no adverse events with IV iron. Eight patients in the oral group had adverse gastrointestinal effects.IV iron sucrose is safe in PD patients. It increases Hb levels and serum iron parameters more effectively than oral iron; it is well tolerated and can permit reductions in the required dose of erythropoietin.
