Figure 2: Erythropoiesis-stimulating agent type prescribed by gender for the GCC-DOPPS hemodialysis population (2012, 2013); among patients with an active ESA prescription at DOPPS enrollment. An almost even split was observed in use of short-acting epoetin and long-acting darbepoetin, with a small percentage of patients being on pegylated epoetin beta. No significant gender difference was seen overall across GCC countries.
