A Study of Darbepoetin Alfa in Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
The primary objectives of the trial are to assess erythroid response to darbepoetin alfa, as determined by changes in hemoglobin and/or red blood cell (RBC) transfusion-dependence and to describe the safety profile of darbepoetin alfa in patients with MDS. The secondary objective is to assess bone marrow progenitor BFU-E growth before and after treatment with darbepoetin alfa.

This recombinant erythropoietin, a 165-amino acid glycoprotein (about 62% protein and 38% carbohydrate), regulates red blood cell production. Epoetin alfa is produced by Chinese hamster ovary cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been inserted. (USP Dictionary of USAN and International Drug Names, 1996).
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acids with arginine at positions 23 and 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acids with lysine at position 23 and histidine at position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acid residues with arginine in position 23 and histidine in position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.

This study is investigating darbepoetin alfa for the treatment of anemia in patients with non-myeloid cancers who are receiving chemotherapy. Darbepoetin alfa is a recombinant protein tha...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of epoetin alfa compared with darbepoetin alfa in the treatment of anemia in adults receiving chemotherapy for cancer. Epoe...
Multicenter, open label single arm study in which 140 subjects with CRI who are currently receiving SC darbepoetin alfa once every other week will receive darbepoetin alfa once every 4 wee...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of darbepoetin alfa as 500ug once every 3 weeks to show that the dose and schedule are not inferior to darbepoetin alfa administered a...
RATIONALE: Epoetin alfa and darbepoetin alfa may cause the body to make more red blood cells. They are used to treat anemia caused by chemotherapy in patients with cancer. PURPOSE: This r...
BACKGROUND: More strokes were observed in the Trial to Reduce Cardiovascular Events With Aranesp Therapy (TREAT) among patients assigned to darbepoetin alfa. We sought to identify baseline characteri...
Abstract Purpose: To investigate the patterns of use of darbepoetin alfa in Spanish centers, and to evaluate its effectiveness in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced anemia under clinical pract...
Background Patients with systolic heart failure and anemia have worse symptoms, functional capacity, and outcomes than those without anemia. We evaluated the effects of darbepoetin alfa on clinical ou...
The misuse of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) increases the proliferation/production of erythrocytes, which enhance oxygen transport capacities, and has grave consequences with respect to hum...
