Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Malonyldiadehyde (MDA) [ Time Frame: 1 year after treatment with antioxidant cocktail. ]
    Lipid peroxidation will be assayed by measuring the formation of malonyldialdehyde (MDA). The formation of MDA on red blood cell will be exposed by hydrogen peroxide. Then, MDA will be extracted by trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and will be reacted with thiobarbituric acid (TBA) in boiling condition to MDA-TBAR complex. This complex will be given pink color and measuring at 532 and 600 nm

Detailed Description:
60 cases of beta-thalassemia/Hb E patients. All patients will be diagnosed with hemoglobin typing of beta-thalassemia/Hb E disease and not receive blood transfusion or any treatment at least 3 months prior study. The study will be randomized controlled trial that designed before and after treatment with antioxidant cocktail. The antioxidant cocktail consists of vitamin E 400 IU/day, curcuminoids 500 mg/day, N-acetylcysteine 200 mg/day and deferiprone 50 mg/kg/day. All patients will receive antioxidant cocktail daily for 12 months. The patients will be regularly followed up and analyzed biochemical parameters every two months during treatment and after withdrawal for 3 months.
