Abstract

Background: The goal of iron therapy is to repair the haemoglobin deficit and replenish storage iron. Oral haematinics are the treatment of choice, due to their higher effectiveness, higher safety, higher ease of administration, higher patient compliance, better accessibility, no occurrence of nosocomial infections and lower cost. This analytical evidence-based clinical research was conducted for the molecular pharmacokinetic study of the pharmacological response and adherence of the patients to oral haematinics, in global tertiary medical care centres.

Methods: 100 anaemic patients, who were treated for moderate iron-deficiency anaemia, were prescribed oral haematinics, such as, ferrous ascorbate, ferrous sulphate, ferrous fumarate and ferric ammonium citrate, containing 60 mg of elemental iron, once to thrice daily, with or after meals, according to the progress of the disease, treatment regimen scheduling, occurrence or non-occurrence of adverse drug reactions and prognosis of the patient. The pharmacokinetic dose-dependent percentage recovery rate of the patients on 1st (30th day), 2nd (60th day) and 3rd (90th day) months and follow-up (105th day) visits, was finally deduced from the patients’ recovery features of symptoms and signs, and the confirmatory laboratory investigations recordings, with the efficacy and safety evaluation findings.

Results: During the oral haematinics treatment, the pharmacokinetic dose-dependent percentage recovery rate of the patients was 29% on 30th day, 62% on 60th day, 93% on 90th day and 100% on 105th day of treatment.

Conclusions: All the oral haematinics treated global anaemic patients had shown 100% recovery rate in tertiary medical care centres.
