Introduction: Anemia by iron deficiency is highly prevalent, especially in pregnant women. Iron salts have been used as conventional therapy, however, its low solubility and high doses used, cause intolerances that can induce failure of treatment. Neotrofin is a new antianemic with natural components produced at the National Center of Bioproduct (BioCen); it is a compound which contains proteins, amino acids and heme iron. The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of Neotrofin in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women. Material and Methods: The study was performed in a longitudinal design, single-center, randomized, open-label, hemoglobin value was less than 110 g/L in the detection of pregnancy, attended in consultation on Nutrition at the Maternal and Child Teaching Hospital (Hijas de Galicia) 10 de Octubre. The estimated sample size was 250 patients and the inclusion of these pregnant in the study was conducted randomly, administering doses of three tablets per day of Neotrofin to recovery of hematological parameters. Results: The study demonstrated the high prevalence of anemia in the area, more than 60%. It was found that 56% of patients Neotrofin was effective in improving hemoglobin levels with a number needed to treat of 2. In addition, Neotrofin guaranteed at a high percent the restoring of iron stores as ferritin. Conclusions: The use of Neotrofin as antianemic in pregnant has a high efficiency by making it possible to use as antianemic in this population.
