About Epogen:

EPOGEN is a medication manufactured by multiple manufacturers and aligned to the J Code: J0885. EPOGEN is administered via the intravenous route of administration.

EPOGEN is an erythopoieten-stimulating agent commonly used to treat patients undergoing non-elective surgeries to reduce the need for blood transfusions and individuals with anemia that is caused by chronic kidney disease, Zidovidune use in patients with HIV, and chemotherapy. It mimics the mechanism of action of erythopoieten (Epo) in the body. Epo is a glycoprotein produced by the kidneys that stimulates red blood cell production when tissue oxygenation is low. EPOGEN (J0885) is not indicated for a specific age group, but it is contraindicated for pregnant women and neonates and increases the risk of stroke, tumor recurrence, myocardial infarction, and other cardiac events significantly in all patients.
