Anyone has heard of this new chelator by Novartis? I went to Dr Ramanan in Pune recently and he recommended this to me. It's costly but said to be more effective than exjade.

The internet has almost no info about it.

Andy, have you heard of this drug?

I think its oral chelator and in India may be called by name Oleptis. Here in USA Novartis called oral chelator as a Jadenu

Is the spelling correct? I can't find any mention of it online, other than here.

Thanks for the information. Let's hope it's more effective than Exjade.

It's the same exact drug as Exjade in a different form that makes it easier to take.

I had attended the conference organized by Dr. MB Agarwal in Mumbai and was quite surprised to hear that Oleptiss was already available across India and some of his patient have been on Oleptiss for atleast past2-3 months.

regards,

Yes, it is available in India and Dr R had already started prescribing to patients.
It's around Rs 5800 (don't remember the exact figure) for 260 mg tab so out of reach of 99.99% patients.

I was also there at seminar

Did anyone mention if there is any possibility that an Indian company will manufacture the drug at a more affordable cost, as is the case with Kelfer and Desirox?
