BACKGROUND We aimed to identify associations between erythroferrone (ERFE), a regulator of hepcidin 25, and biomarkers of erythropoiesis and iron metabolism. We also aimed to determine the effects of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA), continuous erythropoietin receptor activator (CERA) and darbepoetin-α (DA) on ERFE production in patients on(More)
Continuous erythropoietin receptor activator (CERA) and darbepoetin-α (DA) might differently affect iron metabolism and erythropoiesis in patients on hemodialysis (HD). This prospective study examined a cohort of patients on HD who had received either intravenous CERA every 2 or 4 weeks (N = 25) or DA once each week (N = 47). Blood was sampled before HD(More)
