FAIR-HF Subanalysis Shows That Ferinject(R) Improves Kidney Function in Iron-Deficient Patients With Chronic Heart Failure
Date:5/31/2010

ZURICH and BERLIN, May 31, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Results of a subanalysis from the FAIR-HF (Ferinject(R) Assessment in patients with IRon deficiency and Chronic Heart Failure) study demonstrate that correcting iron deficiency with Ferinject(R) (ferric carboxymaltose) can improve renal function in chronic heart failure patients. Ferinject(R) is an intravenous (i.v.) iron product used to treat iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia. These results were now presented at the Heart Failure Association's Late Breaking Clinical Trials Session in Berlin, Germany, by Dr. Piotr Ponikowski, Professor of Cardiology from Wroclaw, Poland.

The authors of the FAIR-HF studied the effects of Ferinject(R) (ferric carboxymaltose) on renal function in iron deficient, anaemic or non-anaemic patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Renal dysfunction commonly complicates the natural course of CHF as it makes patients susceptible to more severe symptoms and increases the risk of hospitalisation and death. Current CHF therapies appear to have little or no beneficial effect on declining renal function due to CHF.

"The results of the subanalysis are exciting findings for cardiologists and nephrologists who treat these patients, and need to be investigated further," said Dr. Piotr Ponikowski, Professor of Cardiology at the Medical University in Wroclaw, Poland. "Many patients with CHF have renal dysfunction which is strongly related to poor health outcomes. None of the therapies used currently or recommended for CHF patients have a favourable effect on renal function. Thus, there is great interest in treatments which may have renoprot
