    Question for MAXd.

    It appears that all drugs associated with raising hemoglobin have nasty side effects that includes Epogen
    Micera and "O". What type of mitigation techniques to do you think will be employed when "O" is restored
    to market?
    a. Subcuteaneos administration only?
    b. Black box warning
    c. epinephrine on hand in dialysis clinics when/if allegic reactions arise.
    d. increased observation of patients after first dosing.

    anything you might add?

    • Exactly what swat said...All the above for full protection of patients. The ONLY fly in this ointment (investigation) that I can see possibly derailing Omontys would be something other than an Anaphylactic or severe allergic reaction...both of which are handled by your four options. However, the reason I'm NOT TOO CONCERNED about it (fatalities) being something other than anaphylaxis is because the incidence rate would be MUCH HIGHER (even much higher than the supposed numbers thrown around by GWP from a WSJ article I still have never found???). THUS, ALL POINTS TO HUMAN ERROR WHICH POINTS DIRECTLY BACK TO FRESENIUS!!!

    • e. All of the Above ?

      Sentiment: Hold
