Abstract

This analysis evaluated the effects of deferasirox on liver iron concentration in moderate and heavily iron-overloaded patients with β-thalassaemia from the ESCALATOR trial (n=231). Mean liver iron concentrations (LIC) decreased significantly from 21.1±8.2 to 14.2±12.1mg Fe/g dry weight (dw) at 2yr (P
