Exjade Information

Exjade (Deferasirox) is a prescription used to treat ongoing high levels of iron in the body caused by multiple blood transfusions in adults and children (at least 2 years old) with certain types of blood diseases (such as sickle cell disease, and anemia). Exjade could be used to reduce chronic iron overload in patients who are receiving long-term blood transfusions for conditions such as beta-thalassemia and other chronic blood conditions). It is also used to treat high levels of iron in people with a certain genetic blood disorder who do not require blood transfusions (non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia). Exjade belongs to a class of drugs known as oral iron-chelating agents. It works by binding to excess iron, allowing the body to pass extra iron out in the stool, thereby relieving the iron overload caused by blood transfusions.
