About

This single-arm study will assess the efficacy and safety of monthly administration of intravenous methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (CERA/Mircera) for the maintenance of hemoglobin (Hb) levels in participants on dialysis with chronic renal anemia in routine clinical practice in Hungary. Participants currently receiving maintenance treatment with intravenous epoetin or darbepoetin will receive monthly injections of Mircera, with the starting dose derived from the erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) dose they had been receiving.

Mircera in Renal Anemia
Experimental group
Description:
Participants with chronic renal anemia previously treated with ESA therapy will receive intravenous Mircera, also known as continuous erythropoietin receptor activator (CERA), every 4 weeks for a total of 52 weeks in this single-arm study. The first dose will be determined by the dose of ESA received prior to administration of study treatment, and subsequent doses will be adjusted to achieve target Hb concentrations.
Treatment:
Drug: Methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta
