Safety and efficacy
Orodispersible Tablet, 10 mg/Kg/day ± 5 mg/Kg/day during 24 weeks Deferasirox should be taken daily 30 minutes before breakfast
Other Name: DEFERASIROX
The primary objective is to assess the safety of deferasirox in treating non-transfusion iron overload in patients with PCT.
The secondary objective is to assess the effectiveness of deferasirox treatment :
After 3 and 6 months to:
•Lower serum ferritin from abnormal to normal standard ranges specified for males and females in this patient population.
After 6 months to :
•Lower liver iron content after 24 weeks of treatment measured by liver MRI T2
After 3 and 6 months to :
- Improve clinical symptoms, i.e. improvement in skin lesions (reduction or no new bullae formation), and skin fragility (photographs will be used).
- Reduce porphyrin levels.
