About EPOFIT 10000IU IPFS INJECTION 1.0ML

EPOFIT 10000IU IPFS INJECTION 1.0ML belongs to a class of drugs known as erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) primarily used to treat anaemia (lack of haemoglobin in blood) due to chronic kidney disease and anaemia due to chemotherapy (cancer treatment). Anaemia is reduced levels of haemoglobin and red blood cells (RBCs) in the blood. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients slowly develop anaemia, which gets worse as the disease progresses. Also, treatment of cancer, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy, causes anaemia in cancer patients.
