Assessment of intestinal absorption of iron administered orally as chondroitin sulphate in normal subjects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The behaviour of sideraemia has been studied in order to assess the intestinal absorption of iron of a new compound, ferric chondroitin sulphate after oral administration in 12 normal volunteers. After administration of 90 mg of iron as ferric chondroitin sulphate, sideraemia rose from a basal value of 88 ± 27 μg/dl to a value of 128 ± 22 μg/dl at the third hour. Variance analysis showed that the increases were statistically significant (F = 27.7; p
