Epoetin alfa Understanding

Epoetin alfa: Overview

Erythropoietin is a glycoprotein which stimulates red blood cell production. It is produced in the kidney and stimulates the division and differentiation of committed erythroid progenitors in the bone marrow. Epoetin alfa is a 165-amino acid erythropoiesis-stimulating glycoprotein manufactured by recombinant DNA technology. It has a molecular weight of approximately 30,400 daltons and is produced by mammalian cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been introduced. The product contains the identical amino acid sequence of isolated natural erythropoietin. Epogen (epoetin alfa) injection for intravenous or subcutaneous administration is formulated as a sterile, clear, colorless liquid in vials in multiple formulations.

Epoetin alfa Biosimilars: Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Epoetin alfa report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including marketed, Phase III, II, I and preclinical. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Epoetin alfa Biosimilars: Marketed Drugs

  • Binocrit: Sandoz

Binocrit (epoetin alfa) is a prescription medicine that stimulates the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. In April 2016, Sandoz announced that the European Commission (EC) has approved a type II variation for the addition of a subcutaneous (s.c.) route of administration in Binocrit’s (epoetin alfa) nephrology indication.


  • Epoimmun: Biosidus

Epoimmun is a synthetic form of human erythropoietin, used to treat anemia. Biosidus recombinant human erythropoietin is their flagship product which is obtained by mass cell culture of genetically modified mammalian cells.

Epoetin alfa Biosimilars: Emerging Drugs

  • UB 851: UBI Pharma

UB-851 is a recombinant human EPO biosimilar. Its highly glycosylated structure, with sialic acid content being the key factor for the in vivo half-life of EPO, makes the product development challenging. Unlike small molecule drugs, biosimilars have complicated structures and large molecular weights. The bioactivity, safety, and efficacy of biosimilars are closely related to the manufacturing process, which is very difficult to replicate.

Report Highlights

  • The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Epoetin alfa R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Epoetin alfa.
  • In May 2018, Pfizer announced the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved RETACRIT (epoetin alfa-epbx), a biosimilar to Epogen and Procrit (epoetin alfa)1, for all indications of the reference product. RETACRIT is now the first and only biosimilar erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) to be approved in the US.
  • In August 2018, Stada announced that it is increasing its presence in the biosimilar sphere by becoming the majority shareholder in Bioceuticals, a venture capital-funded organization created by Stada to carry out its biosimilar programs.
