Hi Katerina,

Luspatercept is in trials. The early trial had very good results. All patients had a decrease in transfusion requirement of at least 60%. The trial was short, so we won't know more about how well it works over longer periods of time until the next phase of trials is completed.  It is administered by IV once every three weeks.

There are some previous posts about this at http://www.thalassemiapatientsandfriends.com/index.php/topic,5303.msg49810.html#msg49810 and http://www.thalassemiapatientsandfriends.com/index.php/topic,5308.0/highlight,luspatercept.html

It's also on the road to approval in the US. The drug was fast tracked, so the approval process should be expedited.

Thanks Andy for the information, hopefully will soon get approved in US.. I have not found any info if the medicine is available for patients in Europe so far.. the only news was related to its marketing authorization by a company..
