Last Update Posted : March 1, 2017
Thirty patients will be enrolled into this open-label, single-arm trial designed to assess the safety and tolerability of oral deferasirox in adult transfusion dependent myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients with iron overload. Patients enrolled in this study will have low or intermediate (INT-1) risk MDS per International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS) criteria. All patients will initiate treatment with 20mg/kg/day deferasirox.
Deferasirox will be administered orally once per day for 12 months.

|Official Title:||An Open Label, Safety and Tolerability Study of Deferasirox for Treatment of Transfusional Iron Overload in Low-Risk and INT-1 Myelodysplastic Patients|

Experimental: 20mg/kg/day deferasirox
Deferasirox will be administered orally once per day for 12 months. Surrogate marker findings, including serum ferritin, and LIC in the context of the study results will be monitored on a regular basis for any indications of clinically important over- or under-chelation.
deferasirox 20 mg/kg/day taken over one year.Deferasirox should be taken every morning 30 minutes before breakfast, if possible consistently around the same time between 7:00 and 9:00 AM. The tablets should be dropped into water or orange juice and gently stirred for 1 to 3 minutes until completely dispersed.
