IGF-1 is produced primarily in the liver as a consequence of GH-induced stimulation. When […]


WAX (methoxypolyethylene glycol-epoetin beta) is an erythropoietin continuous receptor activator (erythropoietin continuous receptor activator). This substance consists of a number of methoxypolyethylene glycol polymers integrated into the EPO molecule and linked mainly by amide bonds. This compound has a longer half-life (about 130 hours) both when administered intravenously and subcutaneously. In addition, compared to epoetin, […]
