Intravenous (IV) IRON Research Study
Doctors around the country are conducting a research study on intravenous (IV) Iron and Unexplained Anemia.
The purpose of the study is to find out if giving IV iron can improve physical function, hemoglobin (Hb) levels, strength, thought process, and overall quality of life in older adults who have unexplained anemia.
Why is this Study Important?
Anemia is a blood disorder. There are many different types and causes of anemia. In some individuals anemia may be a temporary condition, the result of a poor diet or a consequence of surgery. Sometimes it can be a chronic condition caused by a health problem or it may be unexplained (the cause of the anemia cannot be determined). Regardless of the cause, anemia should not be ignored. Results of this study will help doctors know if treating people with intravenous iron is effective in improving symptoms of unexplained anemia.
The study is being coordinated by the Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke University.
