Brief Summary:
This is an exploratory experiment, aims to explore the effective and safety of thalidomide in the treatment of NTDT to improve the hemoglobin level, improve the quality of life, reduce blood transfusion, so as to avoid the adverse reactions caused by transfusion.15~30 patients will be enrolled, including type α 5~13 cases, type β 10~17 cases.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Thalassemia Drug: Thalidomide Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The project is a single arm research of thalidomide in NTDT,patients volunteered to participate in this trial and met the following inclusion criteria will be enrolled: age from 18~65, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of 2 or less. Subjects should take thalidomide 50mg per day for 12 weeks. During this time, hepatic and renal function, hematologic function, electrocardiogram and the adverse reactions were closely observed. According to the protocol, the blood routine, peripheral blood reticulocyte count, nucleated red blood cell count, hemoglobin electrophoresis and other indicators were evaluated in screening-period visit, 4-weeks visit, 8-weeks visit and 12-weeks visit.
