About Aranesp:

ARANESP is a medication manufactured by multiple manufacturers and aligned to the J Code: J0881. ARANESP is administered via the intravenous route of administration.

Aranesp is a medication prescribed for anemia, which is a condition caused by low red blood cell count. There are many conditions or factors that can cause or contribute to anemia, such as chronic kidney failure, or treatment for certain types of cancers. Aranesp works by signaling the bone marrow to produce more red blood cells. Aranesp is very similar to erythropoietin, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and prevents anemia.
