Trial Design

2 Treatment Groups

Iron repletion
Placebo group

This trial requires 85 total participants across 2 different treatment groups

This trial involves 2 different treatments. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. Some patients will receive a placebo treatment. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.

Iron repletionSubjects will donate blood donation and undergo 24-hour PTR and receive IV iron-dextran. After 5 months, subjects will donate blood again, receive IV saline and undergo 24-hour PTR.
PlaceboSubjects will donate blood donation and undergo 24-hour PTR and receive IV saline. After 5 months, subjects will donate blood again, receive IV iron-dextran and undergo 24-hour PTR.
