Figure 3: Effect of exogenous human hepcidin-25 on 2-h oral iron absorption test results. (a) To study the acute effect of exogenous hepcidin, 0-, 25-, 50-, and 100-mg doses of human hepcidin-25 were injected intravenously at 7:00 am, 10 mg of ferric citrate was administered at 8:00 am, and the rats were killed at 10:00 am (n = 5 rats in each group). *(b) Significantly differs from that of the normal controls (P < 0.05)
