    PATIENTS: GAVE patients with previous failed APC therapy, chronic anemia, and transfusion dependence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ; transfusion-dependent anemia was noted in 11 patients (65%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Without cirrhosis, patients are 71% female, average age 73, presenting with occult blood loss leading to transfusion-dependent chronic iron-deficiency anemia, severe acute[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Severe anemia usually appears in the first six months of life.
