Total iron-binding capacity calculated from serum transferrin concentration or serum iron concentration and unsaturated iron-binding capacity.
Serum iron and total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) were measured with a LISA 500 Plus automated chemical analyzer (Hycell Diagnostics, Paris, France).
3 (a) PUD, prior ulcerative disease; NSAID, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug; TIBC, total iron-binding capacity.
Initial laboratory tests for elevated AST/ALT should include a hepatitis B and C panel, iron and total iron-binding capacity, serum electrophoresis, and serum ceruplasmin.
Where the total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) = 25 x the Tf concentration, in g/L (15).
A complete blood count and iron studies from the same time revealed the following values: serum iron 36 [micro]g/dL (normal, 45 to 150 [micro]g/dL), total iron-binding capacity 278 [micro]g/dL (normal, 250 to 460 [micro]g/dL), ferritin 50 ng/mL (normal, 12 to 540 ng/mL), white blood cells 5,900/[mm.
Serum total iron, total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), unsaturated iron binding capacity (UIBC), and the percentage saturation of iron-binding capacity were determined by colorimetric assay (ferrozine method; Sigma Diagnostics) as described previously (7).
Low serum iron and ferritin, and high total iron-binding capacity.
Transferrin saturation can be calculated from the ratio of serum iron concentration to total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) expressed as a percentage [(serum iron/ TIBC) x 100] or, instead, using the sum of serum iron and unsaturated iron-binding capacity (UIBC): [TIBC.
We reported recently that total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) values calculated from serum iron and unsaturated iron-binding capacity (UIBC) values were significantly lower than those obtained by a direct and fully automated TIBC assay (1, 2).
