Groups and Cohorts

Group/Cohort
Epo-resistant
Patients with CKD (estimated GFR < 60cc/min) not on hemodialysis who are receiving greater than or equal to 100IU/kg/week of epoetin alpha and/or 1mcg/kg/week darbepoetin to obtain target hemoglobin or hematocrit.
Epo-responsive
Patients with CKD (estimated GFR < 60cc/min) not on hemodialysis who are requiring <100IU/kg/week of epoetin alpha and/or 1mcg/kg/week of darbepoetin to obtain target hemoglobin/hematocrit.
