Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of Deferasirox in MDS

Summary

Open label, single arm study on Deferasirox treatment in MDS patients with chronic transfusional hemosiderosis.

Patients receive daily oral dosis of Deferasirox in order to eliminate the quantity of iron administered during transfusions and, if needed, to reduce the overload of already present iron.

After an screening phase in which patients are evaluated according to eligibility criteria, a one year treatment phase foresees monthly visits to evaluate safety and efficacy signs.

Description

It has been widely shown that an appropriate chelating therapy in chronic anemias transfusion dependent can prevent the overstock of iron and can reduce the already existing overstock reducing, then, the co-morbidity and improving survival.

In particular, some authors have shown in MDS affected patients undergoing intensive chelating therapy with deferoxamine haematological recovery with a reduction of the need of transfusions.

With the present study, we plan to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a therapy with the new oral chelating Deferasirox in MDS patients with transfusional hemosiderosis.

This is an open label, single arm study on Deferasirox treatment in MDS patients with chronic transfusional hemosiderosis.

Patients will receive daily oral dosis of Deferasirox in order to eliminate the quantity of iron administered during transfusions and, if needed, to reduce the overload of already present iron.

After an screening phase in which patients are evaluated according to eligibility criteria, a one year treatment phase foresees monthly visits to evaluate safety and efficacy signs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clonal myeloid disorders that possess both dysplastic and proliferative features but are not properly classified as either MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES or MYELOPROLIFERATIVE DISORDERS.

These growth factors comprise a family of hematopoietic regulators with biological specificities defined by their ability to support proliferation and differentiation of blood cells of different lineages. ERYTHROPOIETIN and the COLONY-STIMULATING FACTORS belong to this family. Some of these factors have been studied and used in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and bone marrow failure syndromes.

Clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by dysplasia in one or more hematopoietic cell lineages. They predominantly affect patients over 60, are considered preleukemic conditions, and have high probability of transformation into ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.

Neoplasms located in the blood and blood-forming tissue (the bone marrow and lymphatic tissue). The commonest forms are the various types of LEUKEMIA, of LYMPHOMA, and of the progressive, life-threatening forms of the MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES.

Conditions resulting from abnormalities in the arteries branching from the ASCENDING AORTA, the curved portion of the aorta. These syndromes are results of occlusion or abnormal blood flow to the head-neck or arm region leading to neurological defects and weakness in an arm. These syndromes are associated with vascular malformations; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; TRAUMA; and blood clots.
