Intravenous, Subcutaneous
Anaemia of chronic renal failure
Adult: Patients not previously treated w/ erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA): Initially, 0.6 mcg/kg once every 2 wk via IV or SC inj. Increase dose by approx 25% if Hb level is <10 g/dL. Reduce dose by approx 25% if Hb level approaches 12 g/dL. If Hb level continues to increase despite dose reduction, interrupt treatment until Hb level begins to decrease and restart treatment at a dose approx 25% lower than the previous dose. If Hb level stabilises, a once mthly dose that is twice the dose administered every 2 wk may be given. Titrate as necessary. Dosage adjustments should not be made more often than once mthly. Alternatively, for non-dialysis patients, an initial dose of 1.2 mcg/kg once mthly via SC inj may be given.

Tác dụng
Description: Methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta, a continuous erythropoietin receptor activator, stimulates erythropoiesis through interaction w/ the erythropoietin receptor on progenitor cells in the bone, thereby increasing RBC production. It has properties similar to epoetins but has longer duration of action.
Onset: Hb increase: 7-15 days.
Absorption: Absolute bioavailability: Approx 60% (SC). Time to peak plasma concentration: 72 hr (SC).
Excretion: Terminal elimination half-life: Approx 134 hr (IV); approx 140 hr (SC).
