LP15568-6   Ferritin
Ferritin is the major iron storage protein in mammals, and is located primarily in the liver, spleen and bone marrow. Serum ferritin concentrations correlate well with total body iron stores in normal subjects and in patients with iron deficiency or transfusional iron overloads. The measurement of serum ferritin is now considered to be an accurate, quantitative, and convenient method of assessing total body iron stores. Low serum ferritin is diagnostic for iron deficiency anemia, and elevated serum ferritin occurs in the thalassemia but can also occur in other acute and chronic conditions such as hepatic disease, respiratory infections and certain types of malignancy.
