What are the uses for the radioisotope iron-53? This is a question that appears on homework for a chemistry class and I am unable to find an answer.

Re: Iron-53

Most radioisotopes are used either in diagnostics or specific treatments in human patients.  Iron-53 may be used as a tracer for iron-usage studies - Iron (Inactive Ingredient) - 

It may also be used in one of the following (referenced) compounds in clinical trials.
