Etiological spectrum of anemia in non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease: A single-center study from India. Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl. 2019 Jul-Aug;30(4):932-942 Authors: Vikrant S Abstract A retrospective study was conducted over seven years and it aimed to find out various causes of anemia among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study included nondialysis-dependent adult CKD patients who underwent anemia evaluation. A total of 584 patients were studied. Three hundred and twenty-one (55%) patients were male and 263 (45%) were female. The mean age of the patients was 55.5 ± 14 years. One hundred and seventy-eight (30.5%) had a diabetic CKD and 406 (69.5%) had a nondiabetic CKD. Seventy-two (12.3%) patients were in CKD Stage 3, 193 (33%) patients in CKD Stage 4, and 319 (54.6%) patients in CKD Stage 5. The mean hemoglobin was 9.2 ± 2.2 g/dL. There was a progressive fall in hemoglobin with increasing severity of CKD and in CKD Stage 3, 4, and 5 the mean hemoglobin was 10 ± 2.2, 9.4 ± 2.1, and 8.4 ± 1.9 g/dL, respectively (P = 0.001). Most (47.4%) patients had moderate anemia followed by anemia of mild (31.4%) and severe (21.4%) degrees. Three hundred and seven (52.6%) patients had percent transferrin saturation (TSAT)

WomesAbstractA previous study of the spinel CuFe0.5Ti1.5S4 revealed partial crossover of Fe(II) from a high-spin state to a low-spin state with decreasing temperature and an antiferromagnetic ordering of the residual high-spin iron below 7 K. The present study uses the possibility to introduce a small amount of 119Sn into the spinel lattice as a substitute for titanium, leading to the compound CuFe0.5Ti1.4Sn0.1S4. This compound is analysed by 119Sn Mössbauer spectroscopy in the temperature range from 4 t...
