Serum ferritin (Cat # BC-1025; BioCheck, United States) (reference range: male: 28-365 ng/dl; female: 5-148 ng/dl) and soluble transferrin receptor
(Cat # YHB2785Hu, YH Bioresearch China) (reference range: male: 2.
Evaluation of soluble transferrin receptor
levels in children with iron defi-ciency and beta thalassemia trait, and in newborns and their mothers.
Increased erythropoietic activity causes TfR synthesis to be upregulated and thereby increase the soluble transferrin receptor
A comparison between the soluble transferrin receptor
, transferrin saturation and serum ferritin as markers of iron state in hemodialysis patients.
Evaluation of kits for measurement of the soluble transferrin receptor
Soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR) measurements (5-14) have enabled efficient detection of early iron-deficiency anemia (IDA), the treatment of which is essential, especially during phases of psychomotor development, rapid growth, and pregnancy (15-18).
Clinical utility of the soluble transferrin receptor
and comparison with serum ferritin in several populations.
When a CHr <28 pg was used for identification of ID and FID in anemic patients, the values of ferritin, soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR), and the sTfR-F index (sTfR/ log ferritin) (4) performed significantly better in patients without APR [based on a C-reactive protein (CRP) cutoff of 5 mg/L].
The introduction of new laboratory tests, especially soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR), has enabled the identification of storage iron depletion, iron-deficient erythropoiesis, iron deficiency anemia (IDA), and functional ID as readily distinguishable clinical conditions (1-5).
The soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR) has been introduced as a promising new diagnostic tool for differentiating between iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and anemia of chronic disease (ACD) (1-3).
Because the soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR) concentration is not influenced by acute-phase reactions, it remains within reference values in patients with anemia of chronic disease.
Serum soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR) has been established in recent years as a powerful tool for detecting iron deficiency (ID) in adults, especially in distinguishing between iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and anemia of chronic disease (1-8).
In recent years, the measurement of soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR) fragments has been introduced for the identification of iron deficiency (8).
Correlation between soluble transferrin receptor
and serum ferritin levels following bone marrow transplantation for thalassemia.
Measurement of the soluble transferrin receptor
(sTfR) recently has been introduced as a new diagnostic tool for the evaluation of iron status (2, 4).
