This 4 arm study will assess the optimal starting dose of Mircera in the treatment of anemia in patients with non-small cell lung cancer receiving first line myelosuppressive chemotherapy....
This sequential study will assess the efficacy and safety of multiple doses of intravenous Mircera, and will determine the optimum starting dose for maintenance treatment of anemia in chil...
This 2 arm study will compare the hemoglobin maintenance with once monthly Mircera administration versus epoetin beta or darbepoetin alfa in patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodia...
This study will assess the efficacy and safety of intravenous Mircera, given as maintenance treatment for renal anemia in chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis who were previously re...
This study will assess the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous (sc) Mircera give n as maintenance treatment for renal anemia in chronic kidney disease patients o n dialysis who were previo...
Anemia is one of the most prevalent complications in patients with chronic kidney disease, which is believed to be caused by the insufficient synthesis of erythropoietin by the kidney. This phase III ...
For patients with anemia undergoing hemodialysis, erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are typically dosed via precise algorithms. Using one such algorithm, we assessed the maintenance of hemoglob...
Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (eg, epoetin alfa) are the primary treatment for anemia in patients with end-stage renal disease . Hemoglobin variability in and out of a narrow target range is commo...
Polyethylene glycol-20k is a hybrid cell impermeant that reduces ischemia injury and improves microcirculatory flow during and following low flow states through nonenergy-dependent water transfer in t...
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 network of cross-linked hydrophilic macromolecules used in biomedical applications fabricated by photopolymerization of polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate. Its general formulae is C3H5C(O)(OCH2CH2)nOC(O)C3H5 where n denotes a number of average polyglycol (OCH2CH2) repeats.
A recombinant protein which stimulates ERYTHROPOIESIS used to treat ANEMIA.
Ophthalmic solutions that include LUBRICANTS and WETTING AGENTS such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL; HYPROMELLOSE; GLYCEROL; PROPYLENE GLYCOL. They are used to treat conditions caused by deficient tear production such as DRY EYE SYNDROME.
A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.
