Abstract : A simple method for performing a 59Fe ferrokinetics study has been developed, combining several procedures already in use. Methods are presented for measuring plasma iron clearance, red cell iron uptake, and the movement of iron through the hematopoietic centers. Formulas are given for calculating plasma and red cell iron turnover, hemoglobin synthesis, mean erythron life-span, and mean effective erythron hemoglobinization time. (Author)
