A Study of NeoRecormon (Epoetin Beta) in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease.

2014-08-27 03:41:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This single arm study will determine the effects of complete anemia correction in anemic patients with end-stage renal disease currently receiving suboptimal doses of NeoRecormon. Patients on dialysis receiving NeoRecormon, and with a hemoglobin level <105g/L, will be treated with subcutaneous NeoRecormon at a dose determined by the investigator in order to reach (within 3 months) and maintain a hemoglobin level in the range of 120-135g/L. Heart function and quality of life will be measured before and after anemia correction. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is 100 individuals.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 disorder characterized by reduced synthesis of the beta chains of hemoglobin. There is retardation of hemoglobin A synthesis in the heterozygous form (thalassemia minor), which is asymptomatic, while in the homozygous form (thalassemia major, Cooley's anemia, Mediterranean anemia, erythroblastic anemia), which can result in severe complications and even death, hemoglobin A synthesis is absent.

The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.

Viral disease of horses caused by the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV; INFECTIOUS ANEMIA VIRUS, EQUINE). It is characterized by intermittent fever, weakness, and anemia. Chronic infection consists of acute episodes with remissions.

A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia.
