Treatment period 1:To demonstrate that switching HD subjects with a baseline haemoglobin (Hb) ≥ 10 g/dL and ≤ 13 g/dL from either subcutaneous (SC) or intravenous (IV) rHuEPO to IV darbepoetin alfa results in a mean Hb > 11 g/dL.
Treatment Period 2:To demonstrate that switching subjects with a Hb > 11 g/dL and ≤ 13 g/dL from once weekly IV darbepoetin alfa to once every 2 weeks (Q2W) maintains the mean Hb at > 11 g/dL.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate subject preference for Aranesp® administered once monthly (i.e., every 4 weeks (Q4W)) or Procrit® administered once weekly (QW).
The purpose of the study is to prove equivalence of efficacy and safety of BCD-066 and Aranesp® in treatment of anemia in chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate Aranesp® administered subcutaneously (SC) to maintain hemoglobin (Hb) levels in renal transplant recipients.
The purpose of this study is to assess the Aranesp® dose administered intravenously (IV) once weekly to maintain hemoglobin (Hgb) levels in hemodialysis subjects who are either recombinan...
The purpose of this trial is to assess the effectiveness of Aranesp® administered at 300 mcg every 3 weeks (q3w) in achieving therapeutic objectives of anemia treatment (achieving and mai...
The pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease associated anemia is multifactorial and includes decreased production of erythropoietin (EPO), iron deficiency, inflammation, and EPO resistance. To better u...
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services require that dialysis patients' health-related quality of life be assessed annually. The primary instrument used for this purpose is the Kidney Disease Qua...
In autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, total kidney volume and age can identify patients with progressive disease. Texture analysis of magnetic resonance imaging that computerizes and extrac...
Evidence indicates a role for dyslipidemia in the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the association of lipid abnormalities and their ratios with kidney disease using the new CKD Ep...
It may be difficult to differentiate acute kidney injury from chronic kidney disease in patients with no past medical reports of kidney function. This study aimed to investigate the role of serum hyal...
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
An autoimmune disease of the KIDNEY and the LUNG. It is characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies targeting the epitopes in the non-collagenous domains of COLLAGEN TYPE IV in the basement membranes of kidney glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) and lung alveoli (PULMONARY ALVEOLI), and the subsequent destruction of these basement membranes. Clinical features include pulmonary alveolar hemorrhage and glomerulonephritis.
KIDNEY injuries associated with diabetes mellitus and affecting KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; ARTERIOLES; KIDNEY TUBULES; and the interstitium. Clinical signs include persistent PROTEINURIA, from microalbuminuria progressing to ALBUMINURIA of greater than 300 mg/24 h, leading to reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and END-STAGE RENAL DISEASE.
