Inside the Circulatory System1

Venofer is formulated as an iron-carbohydrate complex that consists of a mineral core (the iron) surrounded by a carbohydrate shell. The function of the carbohydrate shell is to stabilize the complex. According to the proposed mechanism, once IV iron is administered, these stable complexes are endocytosed by macrophages of the mononuclear phagocyte system, and the iron is transported to where it is needed.
