Standard treatment of thalassemia involves frequent blood transfusions to correct anemia and suppress marrow hyperactivity. Chronic iron chelation reduces or prevents hemosiderosis caused by this form of therapy. With this conventional treatment, life expectancy may exceed more than 25 years, and many patients manage to maintain normal activity and, occasionally, to raise families.
