Iron Supplementation in Iron-Replete and Nonanemic Pregnant Women in Tanzania: A Randomized Clinical Trial

This study sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of iron supplementation during pregnancy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, an area affected by malaria. The authors not only found that iron-replete, nonanemic women receiving supplementation had improved hematologic and iron status at delivery, but also that the risk of placental malaria was not increased by maternal iron supplementation.
