Editorial Reviews

Based on presentations at two conferences held in April and May 1993, respectively (the first a clinical meeting, the second a forum designed primarily for basic scientists), this volume offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review on most aspects of iron metabolism. Chapters on the biophysical aspects of iron compounds, transferrin and transferrin receptor physiology, iron absorption and uptake, control of iron protein gene expression, ferritin metabolism, and erythroid iron regulation cover various aspects of basic iron research. Chapters on the pathophysiology of iron disorders, epidemiology and genetics of hemochromatosis and the development and applications of iron chelators focus on more clinically relevant aspects of iron research.
