EPO-BUL-01 - Study of the Optimization of Anemia Management of EPREX (Epoetin Alfa) in Predialysis Patients With Chronic Renal Failure
An Open-Label Study of the Optimization of Anemia Management of EPREX (Epoetin Alfa) in Predialysis Patients With Chronic Renal Failure

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness, safety and clinical outcome of Epoetin alfa with dosing regime in accordance with Summary of Product Characteristics in the treatment of anemia in predialysis.

Open-label, non-randomized, multicenter study for anemic patients with hemoglobin <or=11 g/dl. The dose of epoetin alfa is the routine dosage regimen and is in accordance of the approved SmPC. That's why the study had in general two phases - first period: subcutaneous administration and second period:intravenous administration. The evaluation is made in 4 visits:baseline, 2 month (Visit 1), 4 month (Visit 2), 6 month (Visit 3), 9 month (Visit 4). Echographic evaluation - on baseline visit, Visit 3 and Visit 4.Baseline visit - weight, arterial pressure, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, Erythrocytes, Middle Cells Volume, Middle Cells Hemoglobin, Middle Cells Hemoglobin Concentration, Transferrin, Creatinine, Clerans, Visit1, Visit 2, Visit 3, Visit 4 - Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, Erythrocytes, Middle Cells Volume, Middle Cells Hemoglobin, Middle Cells Hemoglobin Concentration. The dosage is in routine dosing regimen, the starting dose of epoetin alfa is 50 Units/kg body weight. The maintaining dose depends on hematological results. Administration - subcutaneous (during the first period), intravenous (second period). Duration of the study - 9 months.
