Product Name:
Iron Sucrose
CAS Number:
8047-67-4
Indication:
Iron sucrose is elemental iron as an injection. It replenishes body iron stores in patients with iron deficiency.
Mode of Action:

Following intravenous administration, iron sucrose is dissociated into iron and sucrose and the iron is transported as a complex with transferrin to target cells including erythroid precursor cells. The iron is then incorporated into hemoglobin as the cells mature into red blood cells.

Pharmacodynamics:

Significant increases in serum iron and serum ferritin and significant decreases in total iron binding capacity occurred four weeks from the initiation of iron sucrose treatment.

Metabolism:

Following IV administration, dissociated into iron and sucrose by the reticuloendothelial system.

Toxicity:

Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylactic shock, loss of consciousness, collapse, hypotension, dyspnea, and seizure. Monitor iron toxicity through the periodic evaluation of lab works which monitors the body concentration of iron. Lab monitoring of the following parameters: transferrin saturation, serum ferritin concentrations, hemoglobin, and hematocrit could be helpful to avoid iron overload. Severe allergic symptoms include: rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness); burning or pain at the injection site; burning, numbness, or tingling; chest pain; fainting; loss of consciousness; severe or persistent dizziness, headache, or light-headedness; seizures; shortness of breath; swelling of the hands, ankles, or feet.
