Negative iron balance predicts acute heart failure survival
Date:5/17/2014

s expressed on all cells and enables iron to enter the cell. When there is not enough iron in the cell, the receptor is overexpressed and shed into the circulation. Concomitance of low hepcidin and high soluble transferrin receptor reflects the most severe form of iron deficiency (lack of iron in the body accompanied by iron need), which the investigators called negative iron balance (NIB).

This prospective, observational study included 165 patients hospitalised for acute heart failure. The researchers assessed the prevalence of NIB and its impact on 12 month mortality.

NIB was found in 37% of patients. Just 29% had only high soluble transferrin receptor, while 9% had only low hepcidin and 25% had none of these abnormalities. Twelve month mortality was 20% for the whole group. Patients with NIB had the highest 12 month mortality (41%) compared to those with only high soluble transferrin receptor (15%), only low hepcidin (7%) and none of these abnormalities (0%) (p<0.001). During the hospital stay 3 patients died and all had NIB.

Professor Jankowska said: "Our study shows that deranged iron status is common in acute heart failure. Mortality in the patients with NIB was high during the 12 month follow up, whereas all of the patients with no iron abnormalities survived to one year."

NIB led to poorer survival in acute heart failure patients regardless of whether they were anaemic or not.

The researchers also measured the standard parameters of iron status, serum ferritin and TSAT, and found that they were less able to predict 12 month mortality than NIB. Levels of serum ferritin and TSAT were only weakly correlated with hepcidin and soluble transferrin receptor.

Professor Ponikowski said: "Levels of hepcidin and soluble transferrin receptor are more clinically relevant in patients with acute heart failure than traditional measures of iron status. We propose a new pathophysiological definition of iron deficiency whi
