|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Anemia Rheumatoid Arthritis||Drug: Epoetin alfa||Phase 2|
PROCRIT is not approved for the treatment of anemia of chronic disease in rheumatoid arthritis patients.
Approximately 270 subjects will be participating in this trial, at approximately 25 centers in the United States. Patients will be eligible to participate in this study if hemoglobin (Hb) is <=11.0 g/dL. The hypothesis is that PROCRIT improves fatigue scores in rheumatoid arthritis patients with anemia of chronic disease. If a patient chooses to participate, he/she will be randomized to receive either PROCRIT or placebo on a weekly basis starting at 20,000 units per injection (up to a maximum of 40,000 units).
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|

|Official Title:||A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Assess Fatigue in Patients With Anemia of Chronic Disease (ACD) Due to Rheumatoid Arthritis Receiving PROCRIT� (Epoetin Alfa)|
|Study Start Date :||July 2004|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||January 2006|
- To assess changes in fatigue in patients at least 18 years old with chronic rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and chronic anemia (Hb < 11.0 g/dL) due to ACD receiving weekly s.c. doses of PROCRIT versus placebo.
- Hb response; changes in anemia associated health concerns; changes in vitality; changes in arthritis related function
