Özet

Background and Aim: Hepcidin has been shown to be an acute phase reactant, induced by infection and inflammation. Ongoing inflammation was shown in rheumatic valve disease (RVD). In this study we want to investigate whether there is a relationship between inflammation and impaired iron metabolism and the role of hepcidin on serum iron levels.
