Mircera approved for monthly dosing in ESA-naive patients

The renal anaemia treatment Mircera (methoxypolyethyleneglycol-epoetin beta) can now be administered once monthly in patients who are not on dialysis and are not currently receiving an erythropoiesis-stimulating agent. At this dosing interval, the recommended dose is 1.2 microgram/kg by subcutaneous injection.

The long-acting erythropoietin receptor activator was previously licensed only for fortnightly dosing in this population.
