Aim Estimation of efficacy of darbepoeitin-alfa in correction of anemia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on program heamodialysis (HD), previously treated with short-acting recombinant human erythropoeitins (rHuEpo).
Methods 49 patients with CKD stage V on HD (26 male and 23 female, mean age 51,5614,86 years) were included into the study. All patients were transfered from short-acting rHuEpo to darbepoeitin-alfa.
Results. Treatment with darbepoeitin-alfa was associated with achievement and stabilization of target levels of haemoglobin. (10,3+1,24 g/l after 4 minths of treatment). Darbepoeitin-alfa was well tolerated; it's efficacy was influenced by secondary hyperparathyreoidism.
Conclusion. Darbepoeitin-alfa is effective in achivement and maintenance of target haemoglobin level in heamodialysis patients.
