Iron deficiency in infancy: applying a physiologic framework for prediction
(AMER SOC CLINICAL NUTRITION, 2006-12)
Background: Infants aged 6-24 mo are at high risk of iron deficiency. Numerous studies worldwide have sought to identify predictors of iron deficiency in this age group. Objective: The objectives of the study were to apply ...
POROTIC HYPEROSTOSIS AS A MANIFESTATION OF IRON DEFICIENCY?
(Universidad de Tarapacá<br>Facultad de Ciencias Sociales y Jurídicas<br>Departamento de Antropología, 2000)
Deficiência de ferro: Conseqüências biológicas e propostas de prevenção
Iron deficiency is the commonest nutritional deficiency in the world. Although it affects adults, particularly women of reproductive age and during gestation, the most vulnerable group is children under two years of age. ...
Early iron deficiency produces persistent damage to visual tracts in Wistar rats
(MANEY PUBLISHING, 2008)
In this study, morphological changes in the optic nerve were determined by light microscopy in Wistar rats on an iron-deficient diet for 32 days or for 21 days followed by 10 days on an iron-recovery diet. The morphometric ...
Glutathione and ascorbic acid protect Arabidopsis plants against detrimental effects of iron deficiency
(Oxford University Press, 2013-06)
Iron is an essential micronutrient required for a wide variety of cellular functions in plant growth and development. Chlorosis is the first visible symptom in iron-deficient plants. Glutathione (GSH) and ascorbic acid ...
Erythrocyte CuZn superoxide dismutase activity is decreased in iron-deficiency anemia
Iron and copper are essential microminerals that are intimately related. The present study was performed to determine the effect of iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) and treatment with iron on laboratory indicators of copper ...
