Brief Summary:
This study is a Phase 2 multicenter, randomized, open-label, parallel-group study. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of LJPC-401 (synthetic human hepcidin) on iron levels in adult patients with transfusion-dependent beta thalassemia with myocardial iron overload.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Beta-Thalassemia Drug: LJPC-401 Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multi-Center, Randomized, Open-Label, Parallel Group Study With LJPC-401 for the Treatment of Myocardial Iron Overload in Adult Patients With Transfusion-Dependent Beta Thalassemia
Actual Study Start Date : November 30, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : October 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : May 2020


Arm Intervention/treatment
