Serum ferritin concentration is the preferred biomarker to assess population iron status in the absence of inflammation. Interpretation of this biomarker is complicated in populations with a high burden of infection, however, because inflammation increases serum ferritin concentration independently of iron status.

Iron Status and Systemic Inflammation, but Not Gut

2013-2-27  Hepcidin regulation by competing stimuli such as infection and iron deficiency has not been studied in infants and it’s yet unknown whether hepcidin regulatory pathways are fully functional in infants. In this cross-sectional study including 339 Kenyan infants aged 6.0±1.1 months (mean±SD), we assessed serum hepcidin-25, biomarkers of iron status and inflammation, and fecal calprotectin.

Iron Deficiency and Malaria among Children Living on

Definitions of biochemical iron status. Iron deficiency was defined as plasma ferritin concentration <12 mg/µL, in association with TFS <10%, as described elsewhere . Children with plasma ferritin concentration ⩾12 µg/mL and TFS ⩾10% were classified as iron replete if no evidence of current malarial infection or inflammation was found (i
