In view of the recent interest in weekly erythropoietic regimens and the lack of studies directly comparing the available agents, the clinical effectiveness of darbepoetin-alpha (DA) and epoetin-beta (EB), when administered via the subcutaneous route on a weekly basis, after conversion from thrice-weekly subcutaneous EB, was studied. In this 9-mo, single-center, randomized study of an unselected hemodialysis population, anemia was managed with a computerized decision-support system. Per… CONTINUE READING
