Iron saturation of ferritin in the course of phlebotomy treatment in patients with haemochromatosis



Iron saturation of ferritin in the course of phlebotomy treatment in patients with haemochromatosis



Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine 37(8): 827-830



This paper describes the iron saturation of ferritin in haemochromatosis patients during phlebotomy therapy. The iron saturation of ferritin does not change during therapy and cannot be used as a parameter to follow therapy. Furthermore, the iron saturation seems to be a constant characteristic of a given person. It does not vary with the body iron stores in patients with haemochromatosis.
