5721. Relationship of serum ferritin with cardiovascular risk factors and inflammation in young men and women. (Abstract)

), anthropometric measurements and blood pressure in 815 men and women aged 26 years. In women serum ferritin correlated with CRP, waist measurement, body mass index (BMI), and triglycerides. In multiple regression analysis CRP alone was independently associated with serum ferritin. Serum ferritin in men correlated with waist measurement, BMI, triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. After adjustment for the other variables, waist measurement was the only independent predictor of ferritin (...) Relationship of serum ferritin with cardiovascular risk factors and inflammation in young men and women. Elevated ferritin levels have been reported as a risk factor for coronary heart disease in Finnish and Italian studies. Studies in other populations have found no association between ferritin and cardiovascular disease raising the possibility of confounding with other cardiovascular risk factors. We determined ferritin levels, metabolic cardiovascular risk factors, C-reactive protein (CRP

5722. HBsAg carrier status and the association between gestational diabetes with increased serum ferritin concentration in Chinese women. (Abstract)

HBsAg carrier status and the association between gestational diabetes with increased serum ferritin concentration in Chinese women. To determine whether the high prevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carriage in our population can explain the previous observation of an association between increased maternal serum ferritin concentration and gestational diabetes in Hong Kong Chinese women.A retrospective study was performed on 767 nonanemic women with singleton pregnancy who had iron (...) status assessed at 28-30 weeks. The result of the routine antenatal HBsAg screening was retrieved from patient records. The HBsAg-positive and -negative groups were compared for maternal characteristics, prevalence of gestational diabetes in the third trimester, prevalence of high serum ferritin and iron concentrations, and transferrin saturation, which is defined as a value in the highest quartile established by the measurements obtained from the HBsAg-negative group.The incidences of oral glucose

5723. There is no clear association between low serum ferritin and chronic diffuse telogen hair loss. (Abstract)

There is no clear association between low serum ferritin and chronic diffuse telogen hair loss. Low iron stores are considered a possible cause of chronic diffuse telogen hair loss in women. Estimation of serum ferritin is recommended as part of the initial assessment when women present with chronic diffuse telogen hair loss, and iron supplementation therapy is commonly recommended for those found to have low iron stores.To evaluate the relationship between low serum ferritin (serum ferritin and had two 4-mm punch biopsies taken from the vertex of the scalp. One biopsy was sectioned horizontally and the other vertically.Twelve women were found to have a serum ferritin of 20 micro g L-1 or less (6.2%). Androgenetic

5724. The ratio of serum transferrin receptor and serum ferritin in the diagnosis of iron status. (Abstract)

The ratio of serum transferrin receptor and serum ferritin in the diagnosis of iron status. Laboratory tests used in the diagnosis of iron status lack specificity in defining iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) and anaemia of inflammation (AI). The serum transferrin receptor (sTfR) may provide more information in this regard. The iron status of 561 pre-school children was determined and classified using the conventional measurements. The value of the concentration of sTfR, the ratio of sTfR (microg

5725. Serum Ferritin is a Reliable, Non-invasive Test for Iron Status in Pregnancy: Comparison of Ferritin with Other Iron Status Markers in a Longitudinal Study on Healthy Pregnant Women; Erythropoiesis. (Abstract)

Serum Ferritin is a Reliable, Non-invasive Test for Iron Status in Pregnancy: Comparison of Ferritin with Other Iron Status Markers in a Longitudinal Study on Healthy Pregnant Women; Erythropoiesis. Background and Aims: To assess the true positive and false positive rates of the iron status markers (serum iron, serum transferrin, transferrin saturation, haemoglobin, haematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean cell haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC (...) ), erythrocyte count) in the diagnosis of depleted iron stores (iron depletion) during normal pregnancy and postpartum. Methods: Among 120 pregnant women, 58 were randomised to placebo-treatment and 62 to iron-treatment (66 mg ferrous iron daily from 14 weeks of gestation). Iron status markers were measured every 4th week during pregnancy and 8 weeks postpartum. Iron depletion was defined by a serum ferritin concentration < 16 &mgr;g/L. The 5th percentiles for the other iron status markers in the group

5726. Lowering of body iron stores by blood letting and oxidation resistance of serum lipoproteins: a randomized cross-over trial in male smokers. (Abstract)

Lowering of body iron stores by blood letting and oxidation resistance of serum lipoproteins: a randomized cross-over trial in male smokers. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the reduction of body iron stores by venesection (blood letting) would reduce the susceptibility to oxidation of atherogenic serum lipoproteins.This is a randomized, controlled cross-over trial in 14 regularly smoking men with elevated serum ferritin concentration. The study design comprised two 14 (...) ) of blood three times in 14 weeks.Oxidation resistance of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL)/low density lipoprotein (LDL) was measured after inducing oxidation with haemin and H2O2.Serum ferritin concentration was reduced by 44% [95% confidence interval (CI) 8-82%, P = 0.021] during the venesection periods, the maximal oxidation velocity was decreased by 20% (95% CI 3-30%, P = 0.032), and the lag time to start of oxidation was lengthened (oxidation resistance increased) by 33% (95% CI 1-64%, P = 0.036

5727. Cord serum erythropoietin in 90 healthy newborn term infants: relationship to blood gases and iron status markers. (Abstract)

Cord serum erythropoietin in 90 healthy newborn term infants: relationship to blood gases and iron status markers. In this study, we examined the cord serum erythropoietin (EPO) level in newborn infants in relation to venous cord blood gases and iron status markers (cord serum ferritin, cord serum transferrin saturation). The subjects were 90 healthy newborn term infants with a normal birth and 90 healthy women with an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery. Within 14-18 weeks of gestation, 47 (...) prospective mothers, allocated at random, received tablets containing 66 mg ferrous iron daily, and 43 received a placebo. Serum EPO was measured in women prior to delivery. Serum EPO, serum ferritin and serum transferrin saturation were analyzed in cord blood from the newborn. Blood gases (PO2, PCO2 and standard HCO3, PH) were measured in venous cord blood and Apgar scores were recorded. The cord serum EPO level in the newborn was not significantly affected by the iron supplementation to the mothers

5728. Failure of twice-weekly iron supplementation to increase blood haemoglobin and serum ferritin concentrations: results of a randomized controlled trial. (Abstract)

Failure of twice-weekly iron supplementation to increase blood haemoglobin and serum ferritin concentrations: results of a randomized controlled trial. In order to increase the intestinal absorption of iron whilst simultaneously minimising the side-effects and thus increasing compliance, once- or twice-weekly, instead of daily, iron supplementation has been widely recommended. In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study in western Kenya, a tablet of ferrous dextran (containing 60 mg (...) elemental iron) or an identical-looking placebo tablet was provided twice-weekly for 12 months to each child or adult investigated. At baseline each subject had a moderately low blood concentration of haemoglobin (Hb). Initial Hb and serum ferritin (SF) concentrations were determined and each subject was tested for malarial and helminth infection and treated, if necessary, with the appropriate anthelminthic drug(s). Overall, 200 children (aged 4-15 years) and 129 adults (aged 16-63 years) completed

5729. A study of serum ferritin levels among male blood donors in Hospital Universiti sains Malaysia. (Abstract)

A study of serum ferritin levels among male blood donors in Hospital Universiti sains Malaysia. Iron deficiency is the commonest cause of anemia worldwide and healthy blood donors are estimated to lose about 236 mg of iron with each donation. The objective of this study was to determine the serum ferritin levels among first time and regular male blood donors, and also to correlate the serum ferritin levels with the number of donations and hemoglobin levels. Hemoglobin levels and serum ferritin (...) were measured in three groups of donors divided into first time donors; (n = 92), donors with 2-4 donations (n = 41), and regular donors (n = 78). The mean hemoglobins in the first time donors, second group and regular blood donor group were 14.95 +/- 1.08, 15.12 +/- 1.44 and 15.56 +/- 1.48, respectively. The serum ferritin level were found to be significantly lower among the regular donors (62.0 +/- 39.78 ng/ml) compared to first time donors (90.7 +/- 66.63) and second group donors (114.12

5730. Response in serum ferritin and haemoglobin to iron therapy in blood donors. (Abstract)

Response in serum ferritin and haemoglobin to iron therapy in blood donors. Seven hundred seventeen healthy male blood donors regularly donating four or more units a year were surveyed for haemoglobin and serum ferritin levels. One hundred fifty-one (21%) had a haemoglobin less than 13.5 g/dl and were therefore disqualified from further blood donation, having a mean serum ferritin of 28 micrograms/liter. Of the remaining 566 donors with haemoglobin levels equal to or greater than 13.5 g/dl (...) , the mean serum ferritin was 33 micrograms/liter, although in 299 (53%) the value was less than 28 micrograms/liter. To document response to iron therapy 46 donors with haemoglobin levels equal to or greater than 13.5 g/dl were stratified into those with the lowest iron stores (group 1; n = 23), defined as a serum ferritin less than 20 micrograms/liter, and controls (group 2; n = 23), with serum ferritin between 50 and 150 micrograms/liter. Within each stratum donors randomly received ferric polymaltose

5731. Serum total cholesterol and ferritin and blood haemoglobin concentrations in primary schoolchildren. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Serum total cholesterol and ferritin and blood haemoglobin concentrations in primary schoolchildren. Serum total cholesterol and ferritin and haemoglobin concentrations were measured in blood samples obtained by venepuncture in 378 of 593 children aged 5-6 or 8-9 years from seven primary schools in Canterbury. This study formed part of an investigation to assess the feasibility of including a venepuncture procedure for monitoring purposes in primary schoolchildren. Although only one child had (...) a very low haemoglobin concentration of 61 g/l, a large percentage, 25% in the rising 6 years and 7% in the rising 9 years, had concentrations between 100 and 115 g/l--that is, less than the reference fifth centile. Eight per cent had a serum ferritin concentration less than 8 micrograms/l. Cholesterol concentrations higher than 5.2 mmol/l were found in 20% of the 5-6 year olds and 23% of the 8-9 year olds, and in 19% of boys and 25% of girls. About 5% of children had cholesterol concentrations above
