Goldberg, E. K., Lal, A., & Fung, E. B. Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, 44(1), 1-11. (2022)

Reports of nutritional deficiencies in patients with thalassemia (Thal) are common. Despite its importance, however, nutritionally focused research in Thal has been limited by inadequate sample size, inconsistent methodology, a lack of control comparisons, and few interventional trials.
