This European study observes paediatric patients with Chronic Kidney Disease using Darbepoetin Alfa to assess the drug's long term safety and profile the patterns of its use within this population.
||Time Perspective: Prospective
|Target Follow-Up Duration:
||A Prospective Registry Study Observing the Safety and Patterns of Use of Darbepoetin Alfa in EU Paediatric Chronic Kidney Disease Patients Receiving or Not Receiving Dialysis
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Number of Participants With Serious Adverse Drug Reactions (SADR), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) or Events of Medical Interest (EMIs) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
An ADR was defined as an undesirable medical occurrence or worsening of a pre-existing medical condition that the investigator considered associated with the use of darbepoetin alfa. An AE is any untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a pre-existing condition whether or not considered to have a causal relationship with darbepoetin alfa. An SADR or SAE is any ADR or AE that is either: • Fatal • Life threatening • Requires or prolongs in-patient hospitalization • A persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or • A congenital anomaly/birth defect. An EMI is defined as one of the following pre-specified AEs: Thromboembolic Events (eg, venous thrombosis, embolism, vascular occlusion) • Seizures • Severe hypertension (Investigator discretion accompanied by recorded blood pressure) • Cardiovascular events (eg, cardiac arrhythmia, myocardial ischaemia/infarction, heart failure) • Pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) • Hypersensitivity reactions (eg, rash, urticaria, anaphylaxis).
