Abstract

In their recent paper, Coppin et al [1] found surviving elderly C282Y homozygotes at a frequency similar to our previous study [2]. Their results illustrate clearly and simply that fatal disease is not an invariant outcome for untreated female C282Y homozyogotes and our previous study drew the same conclusion for male C282Y homozygotes.
