Utility and Stability of a Generic Sodium Ferric
Gluconate in Complex With Sucrose
This monograph discusses the safety and efficacy of oral and IV iron
supplementation for hemodialysis patients with iron-deficiency anemia.
Rajiv Agarwal, MD, provides his thoughts about currently available
parenteral iron formulations, including Nulecit, a new,
non–dextran-containing generic version of sodium ferric gluconate in
complex with sucrose. Additionally, data are presented on the short-term stability of Nulecit under various conditions.
