The impact of recombinant human erythropoietin on medical care costs for hemodialysis patients in Canada.
Recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO) is an established and effective therapy for anemia related to end stage renal disease.
In addition to its clinical effects, it has been associated with significant improvements in quality of life for anemic hemodialysis patients.
The therapy's impact on overall medical care expenditures for these patients remains uncertain, however.
In this study, we examine the costs of r-HuEPO as well as potential offsetting reductions in other medical care costs that might result from the therapy.
