Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Genetic polymorphism associated with side effects of deferasirox [ Time Frame: up to 1 year ]

    Genetic polymorphism associated with side effects of deferasirox

    - Side effects:

    Increased AST or ALT > 5 x ULN or increased bilirubin > 3 x ULN which was thought to be caused by deferasirox Serum creatinine level increase > 50% above the baseline value.

    • Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
    • Candidate genes exhibit polymorphisms and encodes proteins that are involved in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of deferasirox.

    Candidate genes : MRP2, BCRP, UGT1A subfamily

Detailed Description:
Transfusion-associated iron overload induces systemic toxicity. Recently, deferasirox, a convenient long acting oral agent, has been introduced in clinical practice with promising efficacy. However, some patients experience drug-related toxicities and cannot tolerate it. To investigate effect of genetic variations on the toxicities and find optimal target population, we planned to analyze the genetic polymorphisms of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A (UGT1A) subfamily, multi-drug resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP2) and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) among pediatric patients received deferasirox.
