Özet

Objective. The efficacy and safety of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) treatment in chemotherapy-induced anemia in children were investigated, rHuEPO is used to treat chemotherapy-induced anemia. Several studies recommend 150 to 300 IU/kg rHuEPO for 2 to 8 months. There are only a few controlled trials in children and no precise data about the optimal dose and duration of rHuEPO treatment is available.
