Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: 1. Completion of the treatment period in the base study A536-04. 2. Females of child bearing potential (defined as sexually mature women who have not undergone hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy, or are not naturally postmenopausal ≥ 24 consecutive months) must have negative urine or blood pregnancy test prior to enrollment and use adequate birth control methods (abstinence, oral contraceptives, barrier method with spermicide, or surgical sterilization) during study participation and for 12 weeks following the last dose of ACE-536. Males must agree to use a latex condom during any sexual contact with females of child-bearing potential during study participation and for 12 weeks following the last dose of ACE-536, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy. Patients must be counseled concerning measures to be used to prevent pregnancy and potential toxicities prior to the first dose of ACE-536. 3. Patient is able to adhere to the study visit schedule, understand and comply with all protocol requirements. 4. Patient understands and is able to provide written informed consent Patients with treatment interruption (defined as patients who complete the EOS visit for study A536-04 and are ≥ 28 days post EOS visit) must also meet the following criteria 5. Mean hemoglobin concentration < 10.0 g/dL of 2 measurements (not influenced by RBC transfusion) (one performed within one day prior to Cycle 1 Day 1 and the other performed during the screening period [Day -28 to Day -1]) in NTD patients. 6. Adequate folate levels or on folate therapy. 7. Platelet count ≥ 100 x 10(9) /L and ≤ 1,000 x 10(9) /L. 8.

Ejection fraction ≥ 50% by Echocardiogram (ECHO) or Multi gated acquisition scan (MUGA). Exclusion Criteria: 1. Discontinuation/withdrawal from study A536-04 due to patient request, patient unwillingness or inability to comply with the protocol, pregnancy, use of prohibited medication (e.g., hydroxyurea), medical reason or AE, hypersensitivity reaction to the study drug, at the discretion of the sponsor, or loss to follow-up prior to completion of the treatment period. 2.

Official title An Open-Label Extension Study to Evaluate the Long-Term Effects of ACE-536 in Patients With β-Thalassemia Previously Enrolled in Study A536-04
Description Study A536-06 is an open-label extension study for patients previously enrolled in study A536-04 (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT01749540), to evaluate the safety,tolerability and pharmacodynamic effects of up to 24 months of ACE-536 treatment in adult patients with beta-thalassemia previously treated with ACE-536 for up to 3 months in study A536-04. The starting dose level in A536-06 will be 0.8 mg/kg by subcutaneous (SC) injection once every 3 weeks. Dose titration/modification rules will be followed for individual patients and will be based upon safety and efficacy data collected during the course of treatment.
