The University of Bamenda, Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Medical Laboratory Science, PO Box 39 Bambili, Bamenda, Cameroon.

Malaria, which is responsible for a substantial amount of deaths in endemic countries, has been shown to have both direct and indirect effects on the hematological parameters. Notwithstanding, some hematological parameters among populations living in malaria endemic regions have not been described consistently, as a standard for measuring malaria burden. Based on the above fact, this study was designed to assess some hematological changes and their diagnostic values in malaria infected patients. Read More

REGAIN STUDY: Retrospective Study to Assess the Effectiveness, Tolerability, and Safety of Ferric Carboxymaltose in the Management of Iron Deficiency Anemia in Pregnant Women.

Anemia 2019 12;2019:4640635. Epub 2019 Nov 12.

Obstetrics & Gynaecology Department, Corniche Hospital, P.O. Box 3788, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) during pregnancy arises because of preexisting inadequate stores or complex physiological changes and can lead to serious maternal and fetal complications. Oral iron, either as iron sulfate or fumarate, with or without folic acid, is the most commonly used treatment for IDA in pregnancy. Intravenous (IV) iron has a role in the treatment of IDA in pregnancy, particularly in women who present late, display severe anemia (Hb ≤ 9 g/dL), or risk factors, and are intolerant/noncompliant of oral iron.

Comorbidity of Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency and Sickle Cell Disease Exert Significant Effect on RBC Indices.

Anemia 2019 19;2019:3179173. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, School of Biomedical and Allied Health Sciences, College of Health Sciences, University of Ghana, P. O. Box KB 143, Korle-Bu, Accra, Ghana.

Background: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) converts glucose-6-phosphate into 6-phosphogluconate in the pentose phosphate pathway and protects red blood cells (RBCs) from oxidative damage. Their deficiency therefore makes RBCs prone to haemolysis. Sickle cell disease (SCD) on the other hand is a hereditary blood disorder in which there is a single nucleotide substitution in the codon for amino acid 6 substituting glutamic acid with valine.

Using Soluble Transferrin Receptor and Taking Inflammation into Account When Defining Serum Ferritin Cutoffs Improved the Diagnosis of Iron Deficiency in a Group of Canadian Preschool Inuit Children from Nunavik.

Anemia 2016 13;2016:6430214. Epub 2016 Jun 13.

Inuulitsivik Health and Social Services Centre, Puvirnituq, QC, Canada J0M 1P0.

The prevalence of iron depletion, iron deficient erythropoiesis (IDE), and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) was assessed in preschool Inuit children using soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR) and traditional indicators of iron status while disregarding or taking inflammation into account when defining SF cutoffs. Iron depletion was defined as follows: (1) SF < 15 μg/L regardless of the C-reactive protein (CRP) level and (2) SF < 15 or <50 μg/L with CRP ≤ 5 or >5 mg/L, respectively. IDE corresponded to iron depletion combined with total iron binding capacity > 72 μmol/L and/or transferrin saturation < 16%. Read More

Transfusion Thresholds, Quality of Life, and Current Approaches in Myelodysplastic Syndromes.

Anemia 2016 19;2016:8494738. Epub 2016 Apr 19.

Haematology Department, NHS Lothian, Edinburgh EH4 2XU, UK.

Hemoglobin thresholds and triggers for blood transfusions have changed over the years moving from a higher to a lower level. This review article summarizes the current evidence of transfusion thresholds in the hospitalized as well as in the outpatient setting and particularly in myelodysplasia. Fatigue is the main reported symptom in this group of patients and current clinical trials are looking for a more liberal approach of red cell transfusion and the effect on quality of life as opposed to the restrictive strategy used in the critical care setting.

Efficacy and Safety of Intravenous Ferric Carboxymaltose in Geriatric Inpatients at a German Tertiary University Teaching Hospital: A Retrospective Observational Cohort Study of Clinical Practice.

Anemia 2015 5;2015:647930. Epub 2015 Jul 5.

Interdisciplinary Crohn Colitis Centre Rhein-Main, 60594 Frankfurt/Main, Germany ; Institute of Nutritional Science, University of Giessen, 35392 Giessen, Germany ; Gastroenterology and Clinical Nutrition, Krankenhaus Sachsenhausen, Teaching Hospital of the J. W. Goethe University, 60594 Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

Current iron supplementation practice in geriatric patients is erratic and lacks evidence-based recommendations. Despite potential benefits in this population, intravenous iron supplementation is often withheld due to concerns regarding pharmacy expense, perceived safety issues, and doubts regarding efficacy in elderly patients. This retrospective, observational cohort study aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravenous ferric carboxymaltose (FCM, Ferinject) in patients aged >75 years with iron deficiency anaemia (IDA).
