In this issue of Blood, Casu et al report on results from their studies on potential therapeutic options to restrict iron as a treatment of 2 differing blood disorders: the anemia and iron overload associated with β-thalassemia, and the erythrocytosis associated with polycythemia vera (PV). They examine the use of derivatives of hepcidin, a 25-amino acid peptide secreted by the liver, which is widely accepted as the “iron stores” regulator.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
