A Study to Determine the Efficacy, Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of AG-348 in Adult Participants With Non-transfusion-dependent Thalassemia
a study on Thalassemia
Study AG348-C-010 is a multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of treatment with AG-348 in adult participants with non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia (NTDT). This study will include a 24-week core period followed by a 2-year extension period for eligible participants. Approximately 17 participants with NTDT will be enrolled. The initial dose of AG-348 will be 50 milligrams (mg) twice daily (BID) with one potential dose-level increase to 100 mg BID, at the Week 6 visit based on the participant's safety and hemoglobin (Hb) concentrations.
A Phase 2, Open-label, Multicenter Study to Determine the Efficacy, Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of AG-348 in Adult Subjects With Non-transfusion-dependent Thalassemia
