    Adequate body iron stores are crucial to assuring rapid and complete response to recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO). In the present study, markers of iron storage were examined in 27 patients with normochromic, normocytic anemia undergoing acute rHuEPO (150 to 300 U/kg t.i.w.) treatment...

    Intravenous (IV) iron and erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are important therapies in the management of anemia in patients on hemodialysis. However, there is a consensus that ESAs need to be used judiciously - a result of mounting evidence reporting increased risks when targeting higher...
