Pure Red Cell Aplasia Induced by Antibodies against Human Recombinant Erythropoietin

Abstract

Human recombinant erythropoietin (epoetin) is a very effective and safe biopharmaceutical. However, in 1998 the incidence of pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) induced by antierythropoietin (anti-EPO) antibodies in patients treated with epoetin started to increase.
