Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Maintenance of Hb levels [ Time Frame: until the end of 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 210
Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Epoetin alfa
Epoetin alfa Test - Blau
Drug: Epoetin Alfa
The drug will be administered subcutaneously and the initial dose is 50 IU / kg. This dose will be administrated twice/week, totaling 100 U / kg / week.
Active Comparator: Eprex
Epoetin alfa Comparator - JANSSEN-CILAG
Drug: Epoetin Alfa
The drug will be administered subcutaneously and the initial dose is 50 IU / kg. This dose will be administrated twice/week, totaling 100 U / kg / week.

Detailed Description:

Data will be assessed secondary efficacy of the drug against the test drug comparison by evaluating:

  • Maintenance of hemoglobin levels (baseline vs. end of treatment) during maintenance phase;
  • Dose of EPO necessary during the repair and maintenance;
  • Need for transfusion;
  • Safety study drugs by type, frequency and intensity of adverse events during the 12 months of follow up.

objectives exploratory

  • evaluate the immunogenicity of drugs through the quantification of anti-erythropoietin every six months.
