Increased Levels of Iron May Cause Bacterial Skin Infections
A recent global study, published in PLOS Medicine, finds that increased levels of iron in the blood may lead to a higher risk of getting bacterial skin infections.
To analyze the role of iron in various health conditions, a team of researchers from the US took genetic and clinical data on almost 500,000 people from the UK Biobank. The analysis showed that the excess of iron can cause skin infections.
Co-lead study author Dr. Beben Benyamin, a geneticist at the University of South Australia (UniSA) in Adelaide explains: “In this study, we have provided population-based evidence that iron is associated with certain diseases. The next step is to investigate whether direct manipulation of iron levels improve health outcomes through clinical trials.”
