Hereditary hemochromatosis is reflected in the iron isotope composition of blood
Pierre-Alexandre Krayenbuehl (1), Thomas Walczyk (2), Ronny Schoenberg (3), Friedhelm von Blanckenburg (3) and Georg Schulthess (1)
It has recently been shown that the iron isotopic composition of blood differs between individuals and sexes, which is supposed to reflect individual differences in iron metabolism. We hypothesized that patients suffering from hereditary hemochromatosis would demonstrate alterations in the iron isotopic composition of blood due to persistent up-regulation of intestinal iron absorption.
