Improving Health, Health Care and Quality of Life
DaVita administers Epogen® only pursuant to a physician's order, and the physician determines both the dosage amount and route of administration of Epogen®. Also, the FDA-approved package insert for Epogen® recommends that Epogen® be administered intravenously for patients on hemodialysis. DaVita intends to vigorously defend the plaintiffs' claims and allegations contained in the complaint.
DaVita is a leading provider of dialysis services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure. DaVita operates and provides administrative services to approximately 1,300 outpatient dialysis centers located in 42 states and the District of Columbia, serving approximately 104,000 patients.
