Figure 4: Type of erythropoiesis stimulating agents prescribed by country for the Gulf Cooperation Council-Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study hemodialysis population (2012, 2013), among patients with an active ESA prescription at any time during the month of enrollment into DOPPS. Significant variability was observed in ESA type being used across GCC countries. Epoetin was predominantly used in Oman, Bahrain, and Qatar whereas darbepoetin was predominant in Kuwait. An almost even split in the use of epoetin and darbepoetin was seen in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
