Brief Summary:
This is an exploratory experiment, aims to explore the effective and safety of thalidomide in the treatment of TI to improve the hemoglobin level, improve the quality of life, reduce blood transfusion, so as to avoid the adverse reactions caused by transfusion,60~100 patients will be enrolled.

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

Detailed Description:
The project is a single arm research of thalidomide in TI,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. 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,1-month visit, 3-months visit , 6-months visit ,9-months visit, 12-months visit and 15-months visit.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Effective Rate of Patients [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    All participants will complete the treatment for 24 months, the hemoglobin value will be observed during the treatment,the value increased more than 20g/L defined as the marked effect,increased to 10~20g/L defined as effective, otherwise invalid.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Marked Improvement Rate of Patients [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    The highest hemoglobin value will be observed,the value increased more than 20g/L defined as the marked effect,increased to 10~20g/L defined as effective, otherwise invalid.
