Yes, I believe so. I have met Dr. Piga last November in Jordan in the pan middle east thalassemia conference and he said that it could be available in three years. Actually they will start the clinical trails with pediatrics (age 0 to 18) in few months too.
People working on this medication will be visiting us in our thalassemia conference on the 10th and 11th of May 2017. I will be updating everyone
