A Two-year Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Deferasirox Film-coated Tablet Versus Phlebotomy in Patients With Hereditary Hemochromatosis.


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of deferasirox film coated tablet (FCT) versus phlebotomy for the management of iron overload in adults with HH at risk of iron-related morbidity. This evaluation will provide information on the two treatment options in terms of the rate of response of proportion of patients reaching the study target SF 100 g/L and their associated safety profiles.

In addition to exploring the safety and efficacy of deferasirox FCT in hereditary hemochromatosis (HH), this study is being conducted to fulfill an FDA post-marketing requirement [PMC 750-10 (Exjade) /PMR 2888-8 (Jadenu)] to provide additional randomized data to confirm the ocular safety profile of deferasirox through detailed ocular assessments in patients treated with deferasirox FCT for 2 years.
