Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Ferritin as a source of iron was considered. A good iron absorption rate appears in normal rats with an in vivo absorption technique. The same absorption appears in iron deficient animals. The iron stored in intestinal wall is lower in anemic rats than in normal ones, suggesting a higher draw of iron from lumen to blood.
