A study to see how a single subcutaneous dose of Epoetin beta (NeoRecormon®) in healthy Japanese compares with a single subcutaneous dose of Epoetin beta (NeoRecormon®) in Caucasian Male subjects. Each subject received a single subcutaneous dose of 50IU/kg of NeoRecormon Multidose solution on Day 1.
Ethnic comparison studies are becoming common research requirements in order to identify differences in response to drugs in various ethnic populations. This study will investigate the pharmacokinetic parameters and pharmacodynamic response in healthy Caucasian and Japanese male subjects after a single subcutaneous administration of 50IU/kg Epoetin beta
This is a Phase I single centre, open label trial to investigate the bioequivalence of a single subcutaneous dose of Epoetin beta (NeoRecormon®) in healthy Japanese and Caucasian Male subjects.
The primary objectives are 1) to establish the pharmacokinetic parameters of Epoetin beta in healthy Japanese and Caucasian males, and 2) to compare the pharmacokinetic parameters AUCinf and Cmax in healthy Japanese and Caucasian males. The secondary objective is to establish the pharmacodynamic parameters of a single dose of Epoetin beta in healthy Japanese and Caucasian males.
Subjects will receive a single subcutaneous administration of 50IU/kg on one occasion only. The planned study duration is approximately 1 month.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Main objective : Assessing the effect of epoetin beta on Hb rate and the glomerular filtration rate estimated 30 days after kidney transplant.
Anaemia is a risk factor for death, cardiac-cerebrovascular events and poor quality of life in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents (ESAs) are the ...
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...

Chronic heart failure (HF) disrupts normal kidney function and leads to cardiorenal syndrome that further promotes HF progression. To identify potential participants in HF-related injury, we analyzed ...
The kidney failure risk equation (KFRE) provides an estimate of risk of progression to kidney failure, and may guide clinical care.
Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a prolonged kidney condition characterized by decreased kidney function that can eventually develop into total kidney failure. The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) helps t...
Age has no effect on the diagnosis of 'chronic kidney damage'. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) < 60 ml/min per 1.73 m2 is to be considered 'abnormal' for patients of all ages. Albuminuria ...
Patients with chronic kidney disease have an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. It has been recognized that the traditional cardiovascular risk factors could only partially explain the ...
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
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.
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)
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.
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).
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
