The effect of concomitant parenteral iron on Feridex I.V. dosing is not known.

Laboratory Test Findings

Serum iron levels may be above the normal range following Feridex I.V. (ferumoxides injectable solution) administration. Transient increases in serum iron of 15–100% of baseline were observed 18 to 24 hours after Feridex I.V. (ferumoxides injectable solution) administration, and returned to normal in most patients by 7 days after administration. Increases in serum ferritin levels were seen 1 to 7 days after administration.

In a Phase 1 study in normal subjects, PTT was statistically significantly increased; however, all values were within the normal range and no subjects had a more than 40% increase from baseline. In clinical trials of patients who had baseline hematologic abnormalities associated with underlying liver disease, an effect of Feridex I.V. (ferumoxides injectable solution) on platelet or PTT was not demonstrated. In patients with low hematocrit and hemoglobin, over a period of 48 hours to 7 days after Feridex I.V. (ferumoxides injectable solution), the serum iron, the hematocrit and hemoglobin levels increase slightly.
