Cord Blood Iron Status In Maternal Iron Deficiency Anaemia

Dr. Vandana Agrawal*, Dr. Vaishali Jain**, Dr. Priti Sahu***.

Abstract
Background: Iron deficiency (ID) and iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) during pregnancy continue to be of
worldwide concern.The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of maternal iron status on neonatal iron
status and anthropometric characteristics.Methodology: A total of 86 pregnant women aged between 19 and 31
years delivering singleton live births at term gestation (37-41weeks) were included in the study. The pregnant women
were divided into three groups according to their pre-delivery haemoglobin (<11gm/dl) and serum ferritin
concentration (<12ng/dl) levels. Analysis of maternal and cord blood for estimation of haemoglobin level and serum
ferritin was performed. Weight, length and head circumference of neonates was also recorded. Results: Amongst the
pregnant women, 32.6% were anaemic and 17.4% were iron deficient. Neonatal haemoglobin and neonatal serum
ferritin was significantly different (p<0.001) across 3 groups suggesting that maternal anaemia affected the iron
status including iron stores of the newborn. Neonatal haemoglobin and neonatal serum ferritin had a significant
positive correlation with maternal iron status. However no significant correlation was found between maternal iron
status and neonatal anthropometric parameters except in case of neonatal birth weight which had a significant
positive correlation with maternal haemoglobin levels. Conclusion: This study showed that maternal iron deficiency
anaemia has an adverse effect on iron status of their newborns. Thus effective strategies are urgently needed to
control maternal anaemia in the developing world. [Agrawal V NJIRM 2016; 7(3):21 - 24]

Key words: Iron deficiency anaemia, cord blood , haemoglobin , ferritin.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
