Objective: Recent reports show the adverse impact of pre-transplantation iron overload on the outcome of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We studied the pre-transplantation serum iron (SI) parameters including prohepcidin levels - a regulatory peptide of systemic iron homeostasis - and their role in early post-transplantation toxicities in allogeneic HSCT recipients.
