Darbepoetin alfa also helps to reduce the need for blood transfusions. It works by signaling the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. This medication is very similar to the natural substance in your body (erythropoietin) that prevents anemia.
This medication is used to treat anemia (low red blood cell count) in people with long-term serious kidney disease (chronic kidney failure).
