News from the Industry: Monofer – a new therapeutic option for iron-deficiency anemia

Monofer® (iron isomaltoside 1000) is an innovative intravenous iron preparation that allows high-dose iron treatment for patients with iron-deficiency anemia. Monofer is indicated for the treatment of iron-deficiency anemia when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be used, or when there is a clinical need to deliver iron rapidly.
For more information on Monofer, read the full article.
