Epigem, a microengineering company, based at Kirkleatham Business Park in Redcar, has contributed to the Combined Molecular Microscopy for Therapy and Personalised Medication in Rare Anaemia
Treatments project (COMMITMENT).
For some of the rare anaemias, CoMMiTMenT will provide an initial proof-of-principle, whereas for others, such as sickle cell anaemia, personalised medical interventions should become available and will be tested in clinical practice within the project.
CoMMiTMenT includes clinical partners and builds a strong relationship with the European Network for Rare and Congenital Anaemias (ENERCA).
Megaloblastic anaemia is a type of anaemia caused by lack of vitamin B12 or folic acid.
The resulting anaemia, called pernicious anaemia, tends to run in families and is more common in women and in people with other autoimmune disorders.
Anaemia is the most common nutritional deficiency disorder in the world.
Prevalence of anaemia in all the groups is higher in India as compared to other developing countries (1).
Recombinant erythropoietin may be used in anaemias related to chronic disease (e.
Anaemia is the result of excessive blood loss (acutely, i.
It seemed fitting then to devote this paper to the anaemia
of bacterial infection.
Consumption of over 80g ethanol a day will lead directly to sideroblastic anaemias
is widespread in India in spite of diversity in food habits, particularly in the consumption of cereals and such tight metabolic regulation.
Background & objectives: In India, anaemia
in pregnancy remains a major public health problem associated with increased risk of low birth weight deliveries.
Background & objectives: Iron deficiency anaemia
(IDA) is uncommon in individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD) because of availability of an adequate iron source potentially from increased red cell turnover and from blood transfusions.
If your anaemia
is really severe you may be at risk of chronic heart failure because your heart is having to work overtime to supply blood to your body.
