. Laboratory interpretation indicated that the result of testing for iron-binding capacity caused suspicion for occupied binding sites or the presence of interference.
‖ The value for the activated protein C resistance screening assay is the ratio of activated partial-thromboplastin time with activated protein C
to activated partial-thromboplastin time without activated protein C after dilution in factor V–deficient plasma.
Liver failure associated with GALD is technically a terminal event of a chronic intrauterine liver disease Strikingly, serum aminotransferase levels are normal or near normal, which helps to distinguish GALD from other causes of liver failure that present during the neonatal period.
Maternal immunoglobulin G appears to activate fetal complement that leads to the formation of membrane attack complex, resulting in liver cell injury . The degree of liver injury can be profound, so that death from liver failure can occur within the first few weeks of life.
In states in which the hepcidin level is abnormally high such as inflammation, serum iron falls due to iron trapping within macrophages and liver cells and decreased gut iron absorption. This typically leads to anemia due to an inadequate amount of serum iron being available for developing red cells.
When the hepcidin level is abnormally low such as in hemochromatosis, iron overload occurs due to excessive ferroportin mediated iron influx.
Ferroportin is found on the surface of cells that store or transport iron, including:
Enterocytes in the duodenum
Macrophages of the reticuloendothelial system.
Diagram showing a generalized view of cellular iron homeostasis in humans. Iron import can occur via endocytosis of transferrin receptor 1 or via ferrous iron importers DMT1 and ZIP14, which require the activity of iron reductases such as STEAP2, SDR2 and Dcytb. Intracellular iron can be stored in ferritin, used for protein biosynthesis, generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) and regulate transcription via iron-responsive element-binding proteins (IRP1/2). Export occurs through ferroportin, often aided by hephaestin (Hp) and/or ceruloplasmin (Cp), and repressed by hepcidin.

treatment for liver failure with antioxidant cocktails (including vitamin E, N-acetylcysteine,
prostaglandins, and selenium)
