About What’s New in Iron Therapy

Anaemia is a common problem in reproductive age and an important cause of maternal mortality and morbidity. Eradication of anaemia is an important part of the safe motherhood programme. The aim is to eliminate at least anaemia of pregnancy.

In this presentation, Dr. Atul Munshi, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, discusses the effects of anaemia on pregnancy and the management of iron deficiency anaemia in detail.  Iron supplementation is essential to treat iron deficiency anaemia. Newer safer molecules are now in the pipeline. The newer oral iron compounds include ferrous ascorbate, liposomal iron, ferric maltose.  Newer compounds for parenteral iron therapy include second-generation agents (Fe gluconate, iron sucrose) and third generation agents (ferric carboxy maltose, iron isomaltoside, ferumoxytol). These are discussed at length. The management of post-partum anaemia and the indications for blood transfusion during pregnancy are also presented.
