Red Cells and Iron
The SWG on Red Cell and Iron focuses on erythroblast and erythrocyte biology in normal and disease states. Furthermore we focus our studies on iron metabolism related diseases.
This SWG covers the clinical areas of inherited and acquired disorders of the erythrocyte and iron metabolism. Inherited disorders include the hemoglobinopathies and related disorders, disorders of metabolism, membrane abnormalities and other disorders of red blood cell shape, dyserythropoietic anemias and failure of erythroid cell production, and inherited erythrocytosis. Iron metabolism and related clinical conditions are interest of this group.
In general the interests of this group vary from basic science to translational approach and new treatments.
Members of this group are HCP participating in the EuroBloodNet. They aim to facilitate discussion on complex or rare diseases and conditions that require highly specialized treatment, concentrated knowledge and resources.
