The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of iron chelation using deferasirox in patients who show signs of iron overload after an allogeneic stem cell transplantation The iron overload must be due to blood transfusions.
||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A One-year, Open-label, Single Arm, Multi-center Trial Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Oral ICL670 (20 mg/kg/d) in Patients Three to Six Months After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation in Whom Iron Overload is Present
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To assess iron chelation by comparing serum ferritin values at baseline vs. 52 weeks of treatment with deferasirox [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To evaluate the relationship between serum ferritin, transferrin (TRF) and transferrin saturation during the whole study. [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
