Authors' objectives: To comparatively evaluate the efficacy and safety of the different available ESAs in adult and paediatric patients with anaemia associated with CKD.
Authors' recomendations: In adult patients with anaemia associated with CKD, no significant differences were observed in efficacy between the four ESAs (erythropoietin α, erythropoietin, darbepoetin, and CERA) in terms of patients who reach target Hb levels, require PRBC transfusions, or changes in haemoglobin levels, or safety.
