Evaluation of Cutoff Values of RHE and MRV on Diagnosis for Iron Deficiency Anemia in Chinese Adults of Chengdu by Sheng-Hang Zhen, Yan Wang, Wen Xia, Jun-Jiao Mou, Fang-Ye Zhou

Background: Our aim was to evaluate the cutoff values of RHE and MRV as markers to diagnose IDA in healthy Han ethnic adults of Chengdu.
Methods: A total of 263 Han adults who needed bone marrow aspiration for diagnosis were enrolled according to the inclusive and exclusive criteria. The cutoff values of RHE and MRV were determined by receiver operating curves.
Results: According to statistical analysis, the cutoff values of RHE and MRV in male and female groups were 26.75 pg, 89.60 fL and 26.65 pg, 88.55 fL respectively. The areas under the curve (AUC) of RHE and MRV were 0.941, 0.939 and 0.925, 0.909 in male and female groups, respectively.
Conclusions: In our study, we explored the cutoff values of RHE and MRV to diagnose IDA in the Han ethnic population in Chengdu for the first time.
