The overseas workforce of ninety four authors from twelve nations contains experts in inner drugs, hematology, hepatology, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology. In fifty seven in-depth chapters they disguise all facets of pathophysiology, epidemiology, prognosis and remedy. The textual content completely explains the newest advancements within the genetics of the disease, together with sections on screening, diagnostic innovations, and scientific problems. moreover, chapters think about social and moral concerns. With over two hundred illustrations--including forty colour plates--this is modern day definitive source for all clinicians interested by the administration of hemochromatosis, and for scientists drawn to iron metabolism and iron overload.

Example text

In homozygotes, there was a deregulation of the absorptive mechanism, whereas heterozygotes had a preserved absorptive feedback mechanism similar to that of normal subjects. 89 assessed iron absorption in six patients with hemochromatosis and in five normal subjects. Iron absorption was inversely correlated to the serum ferritin concentration in both normal subjects and hemochromatosis patients, but was higher in relation to serum ferritin concentration among the latter. Analysis of mucosal iron kinetics showed that the rate constant for mucosal iron uptake was inversely correlated to the serum ferritin concentration, and that there was no significant difference between hemochromatosis patients and normal subjects.

The analysis indicated that the inheritance of hemochromatosis was recessive, with partial expression in heterozygotes. Because two 19 20 N. Milman Fig. 1. Pattern of inheritance of hemochromatosis (Mendelian autosomal recessive). I. One heterozygous and one normal parent; none of their offspring will be homozygous for the hemochromatosis allele, 50% will be heterozygous, and 50% will not have the hemochromatosis allele. II. Two heterozygous parents: 25% of their offspring will be homozygous, and 50% will be heterozygous for the hemochromatosis allele; 25% will not inherit the hemochromatosis allele.
