LIFE SPAN IN THALASSEMIA MAJOR PATIENTS

Posted by Goh Chun Hui on June 6, 2010 at 12:15 PM



Life Expectancy of Thalassemia Major Patients has improved so much over the years, from living till teens, 20's till now heard of Patients living in their 50's, 60's and even in their 70's. Life expectancy has increased so much longer, due to the prober treatment and regualr chelation. Iron chelators available are desferal, ferriprox (L1), exjade and other natural iron chelaters like green tea. Iron chelaters did a good job in helping Thalassemia Major Patients in getting rid of excess iron in the body and organs, in order not to cause any damage to the body and organs.



Quality of life in Thalassemia Major Patients had improved, patients are now expecting there are new solution to take over Blood transfusion in the soon future. Recently they're also saying alot on Gene Therapy, will it be the cure for Thalassemia Major Patients? Will it be the spotlight. Tell me what you think in the comment below (:

There's no actual age, how long Thalassemia Major Patients can live. But the life span of Thalassemia Major Patient are getting longer and longer now, becuase of well treatment. There are Thalassemia Major Patients living in their 60s.

There's no which is the best chelator. Every chelator have it's own benefit and disadvantages, so you have to judge by the patients condition and work out the best chelator to used for that patient. Deferasirox (Exjade) is the best chelator, if you really want me to pick one. I think it's the closes to perfection.As it benefits by getting rid of iron well both in the heart, liver and other major organs where by Deferasirox or ferrirpox are good in either one the heart or liver and maybe other major organs too.

There is no current solution to replace the need for blood transfusion in patients as this point, but Hydroxyurea which is a drug that helps to reduce the needs of blood transfusion is some patients, and a cure in younger less severe thalassemia patients.
