"What is Procrit?

Procrit (epoetin alfa) is a man-made form of a protein that helps your body produce red blood cells. The amount of this protein in your body may be reduced when you have kidney failure or use certain medications. When fewer red blood cells are produced, you can develop a condition called anemia.

Procrit is used to treat anemia (a lack of red blood cells in the body) in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Procrit is also used to treat anemia caused by zidovudine in HIV-infected patients and in certain patients receiving chemotherapy.

Procrit may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide."
