Aranesp® (darbepoetin alfa) is indicated for the treatment of anemia associated with chronic renal failure (CRF), including patients on dialysis and patients not on dialysis, and for the treatment of anemia in patients with nonmyeloid malignancies where anemia is due to the effect of concomitantly administered chemotherapy.
Important Product Safety Information
Aranesp® is contraindicated in patients with uncontrolled hypertension. Erythropoietic therapies may increase the risk of thrombotic events and other serious events. Seizures have occurred in patients with CRF. The target hemoglobin (Hb) should not exceed 12 g/dL. If the Hb increase exceeds 1.0 g/dL in any 2-week period, dose reductions are recommended. In a study of Epoetin alfa treated hemodialysis patients with clinically evident cardiac disease, where the target hematocrit (Hct) was 42% (Hb = 14 g/dL), an increased incidence of thrombotic events and mortality was seen. The reason for increased mortality observed in this study is unknown. In a study with another erythropoietic product, in women with metastatic breast cancer receiving chemotherapy, where the target Hb was 12-14 g/dL, an increased incidence of thrombotic events, disease progression, and mortality was seen
