  Purpose

MONITOR-CKD5 is an observational, pharmaco-epidemiological study to evaluate the multi-level factors and outcomes associated with the treatment of renal anaemia with biosimilar epoetin alfa in Stage 5 CKD patients requiring haemodialysis.


Condition Intervention
Chronic Kidney Disease
End-stage Renal Disease
Anaemia
Drug: Recombinant human erythropoietin alfa (biosimilar)

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: An International, Prospective, Open-label, Multicenter, Pharmacoepidemiological Study to Determine Predictors of Clinical Outcomes in Haemodialysis Patients With Anaemia Treated With Biosimilar Epoetin Alfa

Further study details as provided by Sandoz:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Haemoglobin outcomes, including haemoglobin levels in g/dL, change in haemoglobin levels over time (in g/dL and %), number and proportion of patients with haematopoietic response, number and proportion of patients reaching target haemoglobin levels. [ Time Frame: every month for 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number and proportion of participants with thrombovascular events, hospitalization,and mortality as measures of safety. [ Time Frame: Every month for 24 months + as occurring between visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety will be assessed every month for 24 months. In addition, any safety events reported by the patient or observed by clinicians in-between the monthly assessments will be recorded at the time of report or occurrence, and will be addressed at that time as necessary.

Study Population

Patients with chronic kidney disease stage 5 with renal anemia and on haemodialysis

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female adults (age > 18 years).
  • On chronic haemodialysis due to end-stage renal disease (CKD5) of original or grafted kidneys for any duration.
  • Diagnosed with renal anaemia; i.e., anaemia due to impaired production of endogenous erythropoietin secondary to kidney failure.
  • Treated with commercially available intravenous EPOETIN ALFA HEXAL® per physician's best clinical judgment and under consideration of available guidance and evidence.
  • Female patients must be either post-menopausal for one year or surgically sterile or using effective contraceptive methods such as barrier method with spermicide or an intra-uterine device. Oral contraceptive use is allowed.
  • Informed written consent to participate in the study by patients or their legal guardian.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Known sensitivity to EPOETIN ALFA HEXAL® or any other ESA.
  • Solid or hematological neoplasia being treated with chemotherapy.
  • Treatment with any myelosuppressant medications.
  • Blood transfusion dependency.
  • History of pure red cell aplasia.
  • Bleeding episode in 30 days prior to enrollment.
  • Orthopaedic surgery in 30 days prior to enrollment.
  • Patients with several medical condition(s) that in view of the investigator prohibits participation in the study.
  • Patients with willfully negligent nonadherence to their haemodialysis, medication, nutrition, and/or other recommended treatment regimens.
  • Use of any investigational agent in the 30 days prior to enrollment.
  • Women of childbearing potential not using the contraception method(s) described above.
  • Women who are breastfeeding.
