AranespAranesp is the trade name for Darbepoetin alfa, a synthetic version of erythropoietin, which stimulates the production of red blood cells. Aranesp has been used since its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2001 to treat patients with anemia, as well as chronic renal failure. It has been frequently prescribed to individuals suffering anemia as a byproduct of chemotherapy.
The FDA has required black box warnings on all sales of Darbepoetin alfa in the United States, citing a number of potential adverse health risks, including:

  • Myocardial infarction, or heart attack, as well as congestive heart failure
    Hypertension (high blood pressure), with increased risk of stroke
  • Venous thromboembolism
  • Thrombosis of vascular access
  • Tumor progression or recurrence
