Cardiac iron load and function in transfused patients treated with deferasirox (the MILE study).

To assess the effect of iron chelation therapy with deferasirox on cardiac iron and function in patients with transfusion-dependent thalassemia major, sickle-cell disease (SCD) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).

Iron chelation monotherapy in transfusion-dependent beta-thalassemia major patients: a comparative study of deferasirox and deferoxamine.

Iron overload is the primary cause of mortality and morbidity in thalassemia major (TM) despite advances in chelation therapy. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness and safety of deferasirox (DFX) and deferoxamine (DFO) as iron-chelating agents in patients with transfusion-dependent β-thalassemia major.

A theoretical study on the electronic structures and equilibrium constants evaluation of Deferasirox iron complexes.

Elemental iron is essential for cellular growth and homeostasis but it is potentially toxic to the cells and tissues. Excess iron can contribute in tumor initiation and tumor growth. Obviously, in iron overload issues using an iron chelator in order to reduce iron concentration seems to be vital. This study presents the density functional theory calculations of the electronic structure and equilibrium constant for iron-deferasirox (Fe-DFX) complexes in the gas phase, water and DMSO. A comprehensive study wa...

Severe Myocardial Dysfunction Reversed by Iron-Chelation Therapy in an Asian Patient with Hereditary Hemochromatosis.

CONIFER - Non-Interventional Study to Evaluate Therapy Monitoring During Deferasirox Treatment of Iron Toxicity in Myelodysplastic Syndrome Patients with Transfusional Iron Overload.

The non-interventional study CONIFER was designed to assess the safety and clinical practicability of deferasirox for the treatment of transfusional iron overload in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients.

Analysis of polymorphism and hepatic expression of duodenal cytochrome b in chronic hepatitis C.

Pathological iron overload is commonly found in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) patients and considered as a negative prognostic factor of the disease. A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs884409 in duodenal cytochrome b gene (CYBRD1) is implicated in pathogenesis of hemochromatosis. In our study we investigated the impact of CYBRD1 genotype and expression on iron overload in CHC patients.

Deferasirox at therapeutic doses is associated with dose-dependent hypercalciuria.

Deferasirox is an oral iron chelator used widely in the treatment of thalassemia major and other transfusion-dependent hemoglobinopathies. Whilst initial long-term studies established the renal safety of deferasirox, there are now increasing reports of hypercalciuria and renal tubular dysfunction. In addition, urolithiasis with rapid loss of bone density in patients with β thalassemia major has been reported. We conducted a cross-sectional cohort study enrolling 152 adult patients comprising of β thalasse...

The iron chelator deferasirox induces apoptosis by targeting oncogenic Pyk2/β-catenin signaling in human multiple myeloma.

Deregulated iron metabolism underlies the pathogenesis of many human cancers. Recently, low expression of ferroportin, which is the only identified non-heme iron exporter, has been associated with significantly reduced overall survival in multiple myeloma (MM); however, the altered iron metabolism in MM biology remains unclear. In this study we demonstrated, by live cell imaging, that MM cells have increased intracellular iron levels as compared with normal cells. In experiments to test the effect of iron c...

Clinical Management of Patients With Thalassemia Syndromes.

Thalassemia is a chronic inherited blood disorder that reduces hemoglobin production, causing chronic hemolytic anemia. Patients often are diagnosed via newborn screening programs. Patients diagnosed with the most severe form of thalassemia often require chronic red blood cell transfusions to control their anemia. The side effect of chronic transfusions is cumulative iron overload for which chelation therapy is required. The incidence of thalassemia is low; therefore, care is best delivered at specialized t...

Use of deferasirox, an iron chelator, to overcome imatinib resistance of chronic myeloid leukemia cells.

The treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) has achieved impressive success since the development of the Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitor, imatinib mesylate. Nevertheless, resistance to imatinib has been observed, and a substantial number of patients need alternative treatment strategies.

Morbidity and mortality of adult patients with congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type I.

Congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type I (CDAI) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by macrocytic anemia, ineffective erythropoiesis and secondary hemochromatosis. To better define the natural history of the disease among adult patients we studied 32 Bedouin patients (median age 34 years; range 21-60) all carrying the same CDAN1 founder mutation. Follow up studies included complete blood count, blood chemistry, abdominal ultrasound, echocardiography and T2*MRI. Main complications were due ...

Evaluation of Proteinuria in β-Thalassemia Major Patients With and Without Diabetes Mellitus Taking Deferasirox.

β-thalassemia is the most common heredity disease in Iran. Regular blood transfusion is critical to sustain life and normal growth. Deferasirox is an oral chelator. One of the side effects of the deferasirox is proteinuria.

Iron-induced epigenetic abnormalities of mouse bone marrow through aberrant activation of aconitase and isocitrate dehydrogenase.

Iron overload remains a concern in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients. Iron chelation therapy (ICT) thus plays an integral role in the management of these patients. Moreover, ICT has been shown to prolong leukemia-free survival in MDS patients; however, the mechanisms responsible for this effect are unclear. Iron is a key molecule for regulating cytosolic aconitase 1 (ACO1). Additionally, the mutation of isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH), the enzyme downstream of ACO1 in the TCA cycle, is associated with ...

Safety of intravenous iron use in chronic kidney disease.

Iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) is common and associated with fatigue, reduced quality of life and poorer clinical outcomes. Treatment with oral iron is often inadequate and international guidelines recommend intravenous (i.v.) iron as the preferred option for the treatment of IDA in certain clinical situations. In this review, we assess the safety of using i.v. iron with a particular focus on patients with chronic kidney disease.

Enzymatically Biodegradable Polyrotaxane-Deferoxamine Conjugates for Iron Chelation.

Chelation therapy is frequently administered to help reduce excess iron burden in the body, but current chelators such as Deferoxamine (DFO) are plagued by short blood circulation times, necessitating infusions, and can cause undesirable toxic side effects in patients. To address these issues, polyrotaxanes (PR) were synthesized by partially threading α-cyclodextrin (α-CD) onto poly(ethylene glycol) bis(amine) (PEG-BA, MW 3400 g/mol) capped with enzymatically cleavable bulky Z-L Phenylalanine (Z-L Phe) mo...

Diagnosis of Iron-Deficiency Anemia in Chronic Kidney Disease.

Anemia is a common and clinically important consequence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). It is most commonly a result of decreased erythropoietin production by the kidneys and/or iron deficiency. Deciding on the appropriate treatment for anemia associated with CKD with iron replacement and erythropoietic-stimulating agents requires an ability to accurately diagnose iron-deficiency anemia. However, the diagnosis of iron-deficiency anemia in CKD patients is complicated by the relatively poor predictive abilit...

Characterisation of hepatic and cardiac iron deposition during standard treatment of anaemia in haemodialysis.

Parenteral iron is integral in the treatment of anaemia of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients on haemodialysis (HD). However, increased liver iron concentration (LIC) can result from such treatment and this correlates poorly with serum ferritin or transferrin saturation values. It is unclear whether increased cardiac iron concentration also occurs in this setting. We aimed to evaluate the relationship of intravenous iron supplementation to hepatic and cardiac iron deposition in chronic HD subjects.

Dual T-type and L-type calcium channel blocker exerts beneficial effects in attenuating cardiovascular dysfunction in iron-overload thalassemic mice.

Iron chelation therapy is a standard treatment in thalassemia patients. However, its poor cardioprotective efficacy and serious side effects are a cause for concern. Previous studies have shown that treatment with L-type calcium channel (LTCC) or dual T-type calcium channel (TTCC) and LTCC blockers decreased cardiac iron and improved cardiac dysfunction in iron overloaded rodent model. Currently, the head to head comparison of therapeutic efficacy among commercial iron chelators, dual TTCC<CC blocker and ...

Iron Balance and the Role of Hepcidin in Chronic Kidney Disease.

The hepatic iron-regulatory hormone hepcidin and its receptor, the cellular iron exporter ferroportin, constitute a feedback-regulated mechanism that maintains adequate plasma concentrations of iron-transferrin for erythropoiesis and other functions, ensures sufficient iron stores, and avoids iron toxicity and iron-dependent microbial pathogenesis. In chronic kidney disease, inflammation and impaired renal clearance increase plasma hepcidin, inhibiting duodenal iron absorption and sequestering iron in macro...

Longitudinal MRI and Ferritin Monitoring of Iron Overload in Chronically Transfused and Chelated Children With Sickle Cell Anemia and Thalassemia Major.

Iron overload is an ineluctable complication in chronically transfused children warranting accurate assessment to avoid related morbidity. We investigated longitudinally the relationships between ferritin levels and hepatic and cardiac T2* magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a cohort of chronically transfused children receiving chelation therapy. Thirty children with sickle cell anemia (SCA) and 7 with thalassemia major (TM) chelated similarly by deferasirox were analyzed. Sex ratio, age, median duration of...

Iron Treatment Strategies in Nondialysis CKD.

In contrast to managing patients on hemodialysis in whom iron strategies are more focused on intravenous iron, nondialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients may receive either oral or intravenous iron. There are advantages and disadvantages for both strategies. Oral iron is simple and cheap to administer and does not require hospital visits, but is poorly absorbed in advanced CKD and is associated with unpleasant gastrointestinal side effects. Intravenous iron, on the other hand, guarantees iron bioavai...

Is iron important in heart failure?

Iron deficiency is a frequent comorbidity in a patient with chronic heart failure, and it associates with a worse pro-gnosis of that patient. Mainly worse quality of life and more rehospitalizations are in these iron deficient patients. Iron metabolism is rather complex and there is some new information concerning this complexity in heart failure. We distinquish an absolute and a functional iron deficiency in heart failure. It is this deficit which is important and not as much is anemia important here. Prev...

Synergy and antagonism between iron chelators and antifungal drugs in Cryptococcus.

Fungal infections remain very difficult to treat, and developing new antifungal drugs is difficult and expensive. Recent approaches therefore seek to augment existing antifungals with synergistic agents that can lower the therapeutic dose, increase efficacy and prevent resistance from developing. Iron limitation can inhibit microbial growth, and iron chelators have been employed to treat fungal infections. In this study, chequerboard testing was used to explore combinations of iron chelators with antifungal...

Safety Issues in Iron Treatment in CKD.

Intravenous iron products are essential for the treatment of anemia in end-stage renal disease patients maintained on hemodialysis. Although proper use of these compounds is necessary for the prevention of iron deficiency, their indiscriminate use could potentially cause insidious adverse consequences. Iron overload can intensify the chronic kidney disease-associated oxidative stress, inflammation, and cardiovascular disease; increase the risk of infections; worsen the severity of type 2 diabetes; and exace...

Determination of functional iron deficiency status in haemodialysis patients in central South Africa.

Functional iron deficiency (FID) is characterized by adequate body iron stores with an inadequate rate of iron delivery for erythropoiesis. In chronic kidney failure (CKD), iron availability is best assessed using the percentage of hypochromic red cells (%Hypo). The aim of our study was to determine the FID status of haemodialysis patients in central South Africa, using the %Hypo analyte and to evaluate the ability of the currently used biochemical tests, transferrin saturation (TSat) and serum ferritin to ...
