Nonresponders to Iron Chelation Therapy
Non-response to chelation therapy can be a result of a variety of factors, each presenting particular management challenges. Join Dr. John B. Porter of the University College London and Dr. Kai-Hsin Lin of National Taiwan University Hospital as they discuss the different measurements used to determine non-response, reasons for non-response, variations in the rates of non-response to different chelators, and how best to improve response rates in patients with sub-optimal iron balance. Case presentations describing the management of two very different non-responders from actual practice provide hands-on examples of how to overcome some of these challenges.
Target AudienceThis activity is designed for haematologists, medical oncologists, haematology-oncology specialists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the screening, evaluation, treatment, and management of adults and children with iron overload, resulting from the spectrum of chronic iron overload diseases.
- Evaluate the reasons for patient non-response to chelation therapy in order to determine how best to improve response rates in patients with sub-optimal iron balance.
