Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: We aim to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of all RCTs that compare ESAs (epoetin alfa, epoetin beta, darbepoetin alfa, or methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta) against placebo, no treatment, or other ESA in adults with CKD. Using network meta-analysis, we aim to assess the safety and efficacy of ESAs to treat anaemia and to generate a clinically useful ranking off available ESAs according to their safety and efficacy.
