Roche's Anaemia Therapies to Feature Strongly at Upcoming World Congress of Nephrology
Basel, Switzerland (ots/PRNewswire) - Nephrologists attending the upcoming World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 21-25 April will hear about a wide range of study results from Roche's robust renal anaemia clinical trial programs for its two treatments -- MIRCERA(R) and NeoRecormon(R).
Among the highlights will be two analyses on MIRCERA, Roche's new continuous erythropoietin receptor activator that is awaiting regulatory approval worldwide. The oral and poster presentations review MIRCERA's once monthly haemoglobin stability in the dialysis setting with different patient populations; and new safety data which shows the rate of haemoglobin decline after withholding once monthly MIRCERA treatment.
Eight posters feature results from trials with Roche's first anaemia drug, NeoRecormon. Highlights include further results from the GAIN trial, an observational, prospective study assessing the management of renal anaemia in more than 4,000 haemodialysis patients within everyday clinical practice in 13 European countries; three posters from the IRIDIEM study investigating anaemia management in chronic kidney disease patients with Type 2 diabetes and three posters discussing the preliminary results from the ORAMA study, which used a guideline-based computerized system for clinical decision making.
Details of the study results will be available concurrent with when they are presented at the congress. Please note all information presented at the annual meeting is embargoed for media release until the time of presentation.
