Unlike other HIF stabilizers in clinical development, which stabilize HIF-2 and stimulate erythropoiesis, GB004 preferentially stabilizes HIF-1 alpha, and has anti-inflammatory and mucosal wound healing effects in animal models of IBD.
Epoetin Alfa has been shown to accelerate erythropoiesis and reduce the requirement for blood transfusion in patients undergoing gynaecological surgery.2
Hepcidin production is believed to be controlled by a number of signals, including 1) an iron signal, which depends on the concentration of iron in transferrin; 2) a bone marrow, or erythropoietic, signal, which suppresses hepcidin when iron is needed for erythropoiesis (Donovan et al., 2006; Ganz 2007); and 3) an inflammation signal, which increases the production of hepcidin in the presence of proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-6 (Nemeth et al., 2003).
Pharmacokinetics of novel erythropoiesis stimulating protein compared with epoetin alfa in dialysis patients.
Unlike other HIF stabilizers in clinical development, which stabilize HIF-2 and stimulate erythropoiesis, GB004 preferentially stabilizes HIF-1 alpha, and has profound anti-inflammatory and mucosal wound healing effects in animal models of IBD.
Transfusion over time can also suppress endogenous erythropoiesis and lead to iron overload (Schmidt & Besarab, 2008).
* A diagnostic plot combining CHr and serum TfR-ferritin index allows identification of four major categories: (a) iron-repleted, normal erythropoiesis (CHr and TfR-ferritin index within appropriate reference values); (b) iron-depleted erythropoiesis (reduced CHr; increased TfR-ferritin index); (c) functional iron deficiency (reduced CHr; TfR-ferritin index within reference values); and (d) reduced iron supply with still-normal erythropoiesis (CHr within reference values; increased TfR-ferritin index).
Luspatercept, a modified activin receptor type IIB fusion protein that acts as a ligand trap for members in the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily involved in the late stages of erythropoiesis, regulates late-stage erythrocyte precursor cell differentiation and maturation.
Roxadustat is a hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor (HIF-PHI) that promotes erythropoiesis through increasing endogenous erythropoietin, improving iron regulation and reducing hepcidin.
ESA treatment is effective in the majority of these patients with anemia, but pharmacologically induced erythropoiesis is limited by the available iron supply.
SAN FRANCISCO -- The benefits of testosterone replacement in hypogonadal men--increased bone mass, improved cognition, increased libido, increased erythropoiesis, and a better energy level--have been well documented.
