Serum hepcidin-25 level was significantly correlated with OIAT s-Fe 120 min ([rho] = -0.438 and p = 0.0196).
To clarify the mechanism of iron overload in the CHC liver, we first examined the dynamics of intestinal iron absorption using the OIAT and found that iron absorption was significantly enhanced in the CHC group compared with the control group.
It should be supported by significant correlation between serum hepcidin-25 and OIAT s-Fe 120 min.
