Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention
Safety of Deferoxamine Therapy Determined by the Number of Participants With Grade 3 or Higher Toxicities.
All patients meeting the criteria for Severe iron overload as defined by BOTH: ferritin ≥ 1000 ng/ml and liver iron content(LIC) ≥ 5 mg/gdw were enrolled and received chelation therapy with Deferoxamine.
