Abstract

The relatively recent discovery of hepcidin has stimulated renewed research interest in iron metabolism and iron-related disorders, emphasizing the importance of this hormone in many normal and pathologic processes. Important questions still remain to be answered; however, research to date offers promising diagnostic and therapeutic implications for both humans and veterinary species.
