Poor adherence can be due to inherent flaws in the process used in preparing the guidelines as outlined above, but just as important are the strategies used in implementation. Moreover, if quality control indicators for evaluation and monitoring are not appropriate and agreed on, monitoring will be haphazard and inadequate and provide meaningless information. This poses a problem in that if outcome measures are not monitored diligently, it is very difficult to determine the effectiveness of Sepsis Guideline Implementation: Benefits, Pitfalls and Possible Solutions 37 Table 1 The Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE) Domain 1.

A small quantity of iron (approximately 1–2 mg per day) is taken up from duodenal enterocytes, which absorb iron from the gut. More importantly, most of the iron (20–25 mg per day) is recycled by macrophages of the reticuloendothelial system that retrieve iron from phagocytosed senescent red blood cells (RBCs) [6]. Iron enters the cytosol of enterocytes and macrophages through divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1), from where it can either be stored in ferritin, or gets exported through the iron exporter, ferroportin.

However, intracellularly living and dividing pathogens might benefit from increased intracellular iron. Indeed, blocking iron efflux by hepcidin or a mutation of ferroportin has a promoting effect on the growth of intracellular pathogens, such as Salmonella typhimurium, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Chlamydia psittaci, Chlamydia trachomatis and Legionella pneumophila, whereas lowering cellular iron levels by the expression of ferroportin has the opposite effect [16]. Another striking observation is that iron chelators can inhibit malaria growth in vitro and in vivo [17] and iron deficiency in patients may protect against malaria probably because the intracellular labile iron pool is significantly reduced during iron deficiency.
