Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To see the rise in hemoglobin concentration of 2gm/dl or more. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To see the rise in hemoglobin concentration of 2gm/dl or more.This rise in hemoglobin concentration will be measured at day 14 and at 3 months, in both groups.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • secondary - time required for rise in hemoglobin concentration [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    time required for rise in hemoglobin concentration. Both groups will be compared in terms of time interval, to see the rise in hemoglobin concentration.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: parenteral iron
dose will be calculated according to Ganzoni's formula, and will be administered by intravenous infusion
Drug: Iron isomaltoside 1000
Iron molecule iron isomaltoside 1000 (Monofer) have been introduced in the market, which can be given in intravenous infusion forms, in a relatively short period of time, in a single setting, after calculation of the required dose. It can be given in a dose of 20mg/kg body weight.
Other Name: Monofer
Active Comparator: oral iron
oral iron in form of ferrous sulphate 200 mg twice daily
Drug: Ferrous sulphate
200mg twice daily
Other Name: ferrous sulphate

Detailed Description:

Iron molecule iron isomaltoside 1000 (Monofer) have been introduced in the market, which can be given in intravenous infusion forms, in a relatively short period of time, in a single setting, after calculation of the required dose. This preparation has been used for treatment of anemia in patients with chronic renal disease, gastrointestinal disorders, anemia of malignancy and in gynecological disorders. It does not require a test dose to be given before total dose, nor does it require any premedication. It can be given in a dose of 20mg/kg. The drug has been licensed for use in Europe in 2009. It has been used for treatment of anemia in patients with chronic renal disease, inflammatory bowel disease and in anemia due to malignancies
