Importance of iron chelation therapy

Abstract

It is necessary to remember that today patients have different options of chelation treatment, as desferrioxamine, deferiprone and deferasirox are available. However, a patient has to be compliant with treatments. They have always to remember that too much iron causes different complications and could be a barrier for a definitive cure from thalassemia.

 

由于出现了去铁胺、去铁酮和去铁斯若等药物,病人现在可以选择不同的螯合治疗方式。 然而,病人必须适应这几种治疗方式。 他们必须时刻记住太多的铁元素会引发多种并发症,并对地中海贫血的彻底治疗造成阻碍。
