The purpose of this study is to observe correction of haemoglobin (Hb) levels in patients receiving chemotherapy as a consequence of a solid tumour, a malignant lymphoma or a multiple myeloma and who are treated with Retacrit™.
This is a non-interventional, descriptive, national, multi-site, longitudinal and prospective observational study in adult patients who are suffering from cancer or malignant blood disease and whose chemotherapy treatment has induced symptomatic anaemia and being treated with Retacrit® to correct haemoglobin levels.
