In the absence of a naturally occurring physiological mechanism for the removal of excess iron in the body, life-long treatment and adherence to iron chelation therapy (ICT) are necessary to prevent the morbidity and mortality that may result if excess iron is allowed to .
Deferasirox (DFO),is the oldest available form of ICT used by patients with transfusion-dependent disorders. Improvements in ICT administration convenience and tolerability are expected to improve patient's satisfaction with ICT and Health Related Quality of Life (HRQOL), thus promoting adherence to ICT regimens and potentially reducing iron overload-related morbidity/mortality and associated healthcare costs

Patients rate all items on scale from 1 "very dissatisfied" to 5 "very satisfied".
Lab methods :
4-Renal function tests. 5-liver function tests.
Other: The Medical Outcomes Short-Form 36-Item Health Survey (SF-36v2) It
SF-36v2 is questionnaire comprising 36items measuring eight dimensions of general HRQOL: physical functioning 10 items, physical health problems 4 items, bodily pain 2 items, general health perceptions 5 items, vitality 4 items, social functioning (2 items), role limitations due to emotional problems (3 items), and general mental health 5 items.
Other Name: Satisfaction with ICT Questionnaire (SICT) Complete blood count. - Serum ferritin . -Renal function tests. -liver function tests.
- The Medical Outcomes Short-Form 36-Item Health Survey (SF-36v2) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]- The Medical Outcomes Short-Form 36-Item Health Survey (SF-36v2) It is a self-administered questionnaire comprising 36-items measuring eight dimensions of general HRQOL: physical functioning (10 items), role limitation due to physical health problems (4 items), bodily pain (2 items), general health perceptions (5 items), vitality (4 items), social functioning (2 items), role limitations due to emotional problems (3 items), and general mental health (5 items). In addition to scores for individual dimensions, two summary scores assessing physical and mental dimensions of health and well-being can also be calculated: Physical Component Summary (PCS) score and the Mental Component Summary (MCS) score, respectively
