Description:

Iron polymaltose complex (IPC)
is a novel iron salt that has distinct advantages over conventional iron
preparations. As opposed to conventional iron salts that contain iron in
ferrous form, iron polymaltose complex contains iron in ferric form. Since
iron is present in ferric form in iron polymaltose complex free radicals do
not form. This is the reason for its better safety profile as compared to
ferrous salts. The bioavailability of IPC is better than ferrous iron. It
produces less gastric irritation than ferrous iron

 

Indications:

For the prevention and treatment
of iron deficiency anaemia
