Abstract Summary: Serum ferritin concentrations have been measured serially over a 12 month period in 35 patients on chronic haemodialysis. All patients on haemodialysis received oral iron and vitamin supplements during the period of study. In 28 of the patients simultaneous bone marrow iron was also estimated. A significant correlation was found between serum ferritin concentration and bone marrow iron content. In all but two patients, oral iron supplements were sufficient to prevent a fall in the serum ferritin concentration during the period of observation. Chronic renal failure per se did not appear to affect the serum ferritin concentration. Copyright
