Formatted abstract
The role of NTBI in iron homeostasis, and particularly in iron overload conditions, remains intriguing. The difficulty in measuring low molecular weight iron complexes both in the plasma and within cells has hindered progress in the understanding of this important area of metal-induced pathogenesis. However, the application of better detection methods for NTBI (such as the method used in the McNamara et al. study) combined with recent advances in the analysis of cellular iron transport should enable the pathways of NTBI uptake, and the role of this iron fraction in tissue pathology, to be defined more precisely.
