Trial Information

Dapsone Induced Methemoglobinemia Study (DIMS)


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine host-related risk factors for developing symptomatic methemoglobinemia in
patients with pediatric hematologic malignancies or aplastic anemia who received
dapsone prophylaxis for pneumocystis carinii.

- Determine whether a deficiency in cytochrome b5 reductase is a risk factor for
symptomatic methemoglobinemia in a subset of these patients.

Secondary

- Collect a genomic DNA specimen from a subset of patients for whom enzyme testing is
being conducted to store for future analyses of variations in the genes responsible for
cytochrome b5 reductase.

OUTLINE: Patients' medical records are reviewed for possible risk factors (e.g., age, sex,
and body mass index) for developing symptomatic methemoglobinemia.

A subset of patients undergo blood sample collection for analysis of cytochrome b5 reductase
levels. DNA samples are also collected from these patients for future genetic polymorphism
studies.
