Abstract

Summary. The effects of injected iron on the absorption of iron by iron deficient animals have been studied. When iron deficiency is partly or fully corrected by injection of iron dextran, prolonged and marked depression of iron absorption follows despite the persistence of iron deficiency. Although total absorption increases with decreasing size of parenteral replacement dose, the depression of absorption per unit of iron injected increases.
