Podcast: New target to reverse iron overload disease

Sandeep Basu-OptimizedIGIB researchers have discovered a pathway that regulates hepcidin hormone production. The hepcidin hormone is a central regulator of iron in the body and its dysregulation can lead to anaemia or excess iron accumulation in liver and heart, leading to multi-organ failure. The researchers identified the target pathway using a different approach and found a strategy for therapy
