Two preparations o f oral iron, were evaluated in normal volun­teers and in patients of iron deficiency anemia. The study in 10 normal volunteers measured the bioavailability of the two prepa­rations. The study in 20 patients assessed the therapeutic equiva­lence and tolerance. In the volunteer study, serum iron levels at 4 and 8 hours were significantly higher with the iron vitamin-­mineral combination than with the plain iron. The AUC was also significantly higher. In patients there was no difference in the effect of the two formulations. With both there was a rapid rise in Hb, PCV and reticulocyte count in the first week, after that the rate of increase was slow. Both preparations were equally well tolerated.
