Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: January 18, 2012)
to assess efficacy of combining DFP and deferasirox compared to combined DFP and DFO in decreasing the serum ferritin level in conditions with severe chronic iron overload. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
• The primary outcome measure is to measure the change in serum ferritin level from baseline in the 2 combination therapy.

Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: January 18, 2012)
to determine the safety upon administering the drugs in combination (DFP and DFX) compared to the combination of DFO and DFP. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Study Of Efficacy,Safety of Combined Deferasirox and Deferiprone Versus Combined Deferiprone and Desferal In Conditions of Iron Overload
Official Title  ICMJE A Prospective Randomized Comparative Study of Efficacy and Safety of Combined Deferiprone (DFP) and Deferasirox Versus DFP and Desferrioxamine (DFO) Therapy in Diseases With Severe Iron Overload
Brief Summary

Interventional Allocation: Randomized Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study of combined chelation therapy Masking: Open Label Primary Purpose: Treatment of transfusional iron overload

Primary Outcome Measures:

• The primary outcome measure is to assess efficacy in lowering serum ferritin level(the change in serum ferritin compared to baseline) with combining DFP and deferasirox compared to combined DFP and DFO in conditions with severe chronic iron overload; showing an up-trend of SF over previous 12 months on single chelator.

Secondary Outcome Measures:

• The secondary outcome measure is to determine the number of patients who will develop adverse events in order to assess safety upon administering the drugs in combination (DFP and DFX) compared to the combination of DFO and DFP.

Detailed Description

Study population:

  1. Beta-thalassemia major patients; Patients with high iron stores Serum ferritin consistently > 2500 mcg/l and or increasing trend over previous 12 months Liver iron >14 mg/g dry weight- by R2 MRI
  2. Other causes of transfusional hemosiderosis

Estimated Enrollment: 30 patients in each arm Study Start Date: January 1st ; 2011 enrollment period 8 weeks Estimated Study Completion Date: End of February 1212

Arms Assigned Interventions

Arm 1: Patients will be treated with combined DFP and deferasirox. Drug: Ferriprox It will be given orally in the morning Other Name: DFP Initial dose 25/mg/kg in 3 divided doses (better tolerated if started and then built up over 4 weeks).

Dose may be increased up to 100mg/kg/day guided by serum ferritin. Agranulocytosis risk 1-2%. Monitor TLC and granulocytic count / 2weeks. Patients need to be continually educated about this risk, know that they must stop DFP if they have a fever or infection.

Drug: Deferasirox will be orally administered at a dose of 20 mg/kg once daily at evening for 5 days.

Other Name: ICL670 Arm 2: Patients will be treated for 6 days with a combination of deferoxamine and DFP.

Interventions:

  • Drug: Deferoxamine
  • Drug: DFP Drug: Deferoxamine Deferoxamine will be administered subcutaneously over 8 hours for 5 days at a dose of 40 mg/kg.

Other Name: Desferal, DFO Drug: DFP DFP: will be orally administered at a dose of 75mg/kg orally in 3 divided doses for 7 days

Eligibility Ages Eligible for Study : 6 to 18Years Genders Eligible for Study: Both

Inclusion Criteria:
