Maxifer Description

iron sucrose




Full Prescribing Info
Each mL of solution for IV injection contains complex ferric hydroxide with sucrose equivalent to elemental iron 20 mg and water for injection.
Maxifer is a brown, sterile, aqueous, complex of polynuclear iron (III)-hydroxide in sucrose for IV use. Iron sucrose injection has a molecular weight of approximately 34,000-60,000 daltons and a structural formula of [Na2Fe5O8(OH)·3(H2O)]n·m(C12H22O11) where n is the degree of iron polymerization and m is the number of sucrose molecules associated with the iron (III)-hydroxide.
Maxifer contains approximately sucrose 30% w/v (300 mg/mL) and has a pH of 10.5-11.1. It contains no preservatives. The osmolarity of the injection is approximately 1250 mOsmol/L.
