Know your iron chelation options

Iron chelators have different molecular structures, weights, and properties.

Balancing effective chelation with treatment toxicity is a challenge and often leads to suboptimal dosing and compliance.

Efficacy of iron chelation can be affected by:

Suboptimal dosing

GI side effects

Renal/hepatic toxicities

Careful patient selection and monitoring is required to avoid renal toxicity

Regular monitoring of both iron level and renal/hepatic toxicity can help optimize iron chelation and ensure patients are on an appropriate chelator.
