About

The aim of the study is to assess the impact of pentoxifylline administration on the modulation of hyporesponsiveness to erythropoietin stimulating agents in hemodialysis patients

Full description

this is a prospective, randomized, controlled study to assess the impact of pentoxifylline administration on the modulation of hyporesponsiveness to erythropoietin stimulating agents in hemodialysis patients by determining several outcomes from the intervention and control groups at the end of the study.These outcomes include;the difference in hemoglobin and hematocrit concentration , the difference in inflammatory markers tumor necrosis factor Alpha (TNF-α), interleukin-1 Beta (IL-1β),the difference in the dosage of erythropoiesis stimulating agents ,and The erythropoietin stimulating agents (ESA) resistance index (ERI).
