    Tmt. and dosage has to be initiated

    to the med. condit.
    Tmt. of symptom. anaemia assoc.with
    chron.renal fail.(CRF) in adult and
    paediatric pts.:- Tmt. of anaemia assoc.
    with chron. ren. fail.in paed. and adult pts.
    on haemodialysis and adult pts. on
    periton. dialysis.- Tmt. of sev. anaemia of
    renal origin accomp. by clin. sympt. in
    adult pts. with ren. insuffic. not yet
    undergoing dialysis. Tmt. of anaemia and
    reduct. of transfus. requirem. in adult pts.
    receiv. chemother. for solid tumour.,
    malign. lymphoma or multiple myeloma,
    and at risk of transfus. as assessed by the
    patient’s gener. status (e.g. cardiovascular
    status, pre existing anaemia at the start of
    chemother.). Binocrit can be used to
    increase the yield of autologous blood from pts. in a predonation programme. Its
    use in this indicat. must be balanced
    against the reported risk of thromboemb.
    events. Tmt. should only be given to noniron
    defic. pts. with moder. anaem.
    (haemoglobin (Hb) 10 13 g/dl (6.2 8.1
    mmol/l)), if blood saving procedur. are not
    available or insuffic. when the scheduled
    major elect. surg. requires a large volume
    of blood (4 or more units of blood for
    females or 5 or more units for males). The
    drug can be used to reduce exposure to
    allogeneic blood transfus. in adult non
    iron defic. pts. prior to major elective
    orthopaedic surg., having a high perceived
    risk for transfus. complicat. Use should be
    restricted to pts. with moder. anaemia (e.g.
    Hb 10 13 g/dl) who do not have an
    autolog. predonation programme
    available and with an expect. blood loss of
    900 to 1800 ml.
    C/I: Hypersens., pts. who develop PRCA
    follow. tmt. with any erythropoietin
    should not receive this drug or any other
    erythropoietin.
