A Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and the Effects on Liver Iron Concentration of Repeated Doses of ICL670 Relative to Deferoxamine in Sickle Cell Disease Patients With Transfusional Hemosiderosis

2014-07-23 21:09:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The safety, tolerability, effects on liver iron concentration and pharmacokinetics of ICL670 is studied relative to deferoxamine in sickle cell disease patients with transfusional hemosiderosis.

The treatment period started once the patient completed the core study and signed informed consent. It is continued for up to 4 years. Safety parameters were assessed every 4 weeks. Eye and Ear examinations were performed on a yearly basis. To further investigate the extent of iron overload, serum ferritin, iron, and transferrin were monitored every four weeks. The Program Safety Board monitored the safety of ICL670 during the study to evaluate and categorize any serious case reported in association with ICL670.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the sickle cell disorders characterized by the presence of both hemoglobin S and hemoglobin C. It is similar to, but less severe than sickle cell anemia.

An abnormal hemoglobin resulting from the substitution of valine for glutamic acid at position 6 of the beta chain of the globin moiety. The heterozygous state results in sickle cell trait, the homozygous in sickle cell anemia.

An excessive accumulation of iron in the body due to a greater than normal absorption of iron from the gastrointestinal tract or from parenteral injection. This may arise from idiopathic hemochromatosis, excessive iron intake, chronic alcoholism, certain types of refractory anemia, or transfusional hemosiderosis. (From Churchill's Illustrated Medical Dictionary, 1989)

An acute purulent infection of the meninges and subarachnoid space caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, most prevalent in children and adults over the age of 60. This illness may be associated with OTITIS MEDIA; MASTOIDITIS; SINUSITIS; RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTIONS; sickle cell disease (ANEMIA, SICKLE CELL); skull fractures; and other disorders. Clinical manifestations include FEVER; HEADACHE; neck stiffness; and somnolence followed by SEIZURES; focal neurologic deficits (notably DEAFNESS); and COMA. (From Miller et al., Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p111)

A disease characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia, episodic painful crises, and pathologic involvement of many organs. It is the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin S.
