This volume consists of 23 papers dealing with the absorption, transportation, and storage of iron in the body and the use of iron preparations in the treatment of iron-deficiency anemia. These papers were presented at a symposium held at the University of California School of Medicine in San Francisco in January, 1957. The participants included leading investigators from the United States and abroad. The sections dealing with the metabolism of iron present a comprehensive and up-to-date summary of current knowledge in this field. In the clinical section the use of the new iron-dextran parenterally administered iron preparation is emphasized. The book should serve as a useful reference source on the pharmacology of iron.
