Exjade and the FDA

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reviewing adverse event information for Exjade from a database that tracks all patients who are prescribed deferasirox (Exjade). This information suggests there may be a greater risk for adverse events such as kidney failure, gastrointestinal haemorrhage, and deaths in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) compared with patients without these conditions.
