Effects of Intravenous Ferric Carboxymaltose on Phosphorus and FGF23 Levels

Our research group is currently conducting a 6-8 -week study on patients with iron deficiency anemia to determine the effect of treating iron deficiency anemia with intravenous ferric carboxymaltose therapy on FGF23 and phosphorus levels. A single dose of ferric carboxymaltose has been shown to increase FGF23 levels in the short-term, but the long-term effects of ferric carboxymaltose on FGF23 levels in iron deficient patients are not known. We are conducting this research study to understand the effects of intravenous ferric carboxymaltose therapy on blood levels of FGF23 in individuals with iron deficiency anemia. The information gained from this study could be used to improve the health of patients with iron deficiency anemia.
