Anaemia is a common consequence of chronic renal failure. Darbepoetin alfa is a unique erythropoietic protein that stimulates erythropoiesis by the same mechanism as endogenous erythropietin and conventional recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO). Darbepoetin alfa has been shown to have a serum half-life 3-fold longer than that of rHuEPO, which allows dosing at extended intervals and less frequent injection.
The objective is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of darbepoetin alfa therapy given at an extended once monthly dosing interval in the treatment of renal anaemia in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.

This study is investigating darbepoetin alfa for the treatment of anemia in patients with non-myeloid cancers who are receiving chemotherapy. Darbepoetin alfa is a recombinant protein tha...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of darbepoetin alfa as 500ug once every 3 weeks to show that the dose and schedule are not inferior to darbepoetin alfa administered a...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of epoetin alfa compared with darbepoetin alfa in the treatment of anemia in adults receiving chemotherapy for cancer. Epoe...
RATIONALE: Epoetin alfa and darbepoetin alfa may cause the body to make more red blood cells. They are used to treat anemia caused by chemotherapy in patients with cancer. PURPOSE: This r...
The purpose of this study is to find out more about darbepoetin alfa in children less than 1 year of age with anemia (a decrease in red blood cells) due to kidney failure. This study will ...
This is a post-hoc analysis evaluating erythropoiesis stimulating agents' (ESA) related costs while using an additional ultrafilter (Estorclean PLUS) to produce ultrapure dialysis water located within...
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 congenital dyserythropoietic anemias (CDAs) are a group of rare inherited blood disorders characterized by ineffective erythropoiesis as the principal cause of anemia. We present a child with CDA ...

A recombinant protein which stimulates ERYTHROPOIESIS used to treat ANEMIA.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acids with arginine at positions 23 and 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acids with lysine at position 23 and histidine at position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acid residues with arginine in position 23 and histidine in position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
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...
