Research and Markets: Investigation Report on China's Epoetin Alfa Market

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mf3rwt/investigation) has announced the addition of the "Investigation Report on China Epoetin Alfa Market, 2009-2018" report to their offering.

Epoetin alfa refers to erythropoietin (EPO), a hormone-like substance secreted by kidney and liver that stimulates erythropoiesis. Indications of EPO approved in China are renal anemia, anemia after chemotherapy and surgery perioperative red blood cell mobilization.

The ratio between EPO used in renal dialysis and in chemotherapy is 3:1. Growth rate of EPO used in chemotherapy is about 20% to 25%, which is higher than that of renal dialysis. However, in the international market, more EPO is used in anemia after chemotherapy than in renal dialysis. This indicates huge market space for EPO used in anemia after chemotherapy in China.

Originall developed by Amgen Inc., epoetin alfa was approved to the U.S. in June 1989 by FDA with the trade name ""Epogen"". It is sold in over 40 countries now. Amgen is the only authorized product sold in the U.S. hemodialysis market. However, in other indications' market in the U.S., due to financial shortage, Amgen gave the marketing right of Epogen to Kirin-Amgen, Inc. (joint venture of Amgen and Kirin). The company then authorized Ortho Pharmaceutical Corporation of Johnson & Johnson to sell the product with the brand name ""Procrit"". In other countries including Chinese mainland, Taiwan and Japan, the drug is sold by Kirin Inc. and Johnson & Johnson with the trade names ""Espo"" and ""Eprex"" respectively. Both the companies are authorized by Kirin-Amgen.
