About Retacrit:

RETACRIT is a medication manufactured by multiple manufacturers and aligned to the Q Code: Q5106. RETACRIT is administered via the subcutaneous route of administration.

Retacrit is an injection used to treat patients with anemia caused by a variety of different factors. Retacrit can help treat low red blood cell count in patients with chronic kidney failure, patients receiving treatment for HIV, patients receiving chemotherapy for certain types of cancers, or patients about to undergo surgery. Retacrit works by signalling the bone marrow to produce more red blood cells. It can mimic the substance erythropoietin, which occurs naturally in the body and helps prevent anemia.
