Abstract

57Fe Mössbauer spectra of iron overloaded human spleen, rat spleen and rat liver tissue samples at 78 K were found to consist of a quadrupole doublet (major component) with magnetic sextet (minor component with fractional spectral area Fs). The distributions of Fs for spleen tissue from two different clinically identifiable groups (n = 7 and n = 12) of thalassemic patients were found to be significantly different. The value of Fs for dietary-iron loaded rat liver was found to rise significantly with age/duration (up to 24 months) of iron loading.
