NOVA Cat Clinic is participating in a study to help cats with kidney disease and anemia.

If you cat has this condition, please contact us to learn how your cat can be enrolled.  Your cat will be helping millions of other cats benefit from this new drug.  In addition, you and your cat will be compensated.

The kidneys are the body’s filter, but do many other things.  Kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin.  This hormone tells the bone marrow to make red blood cells.  When this stops, cats become anemic.  This is a very serious condition and can result in death. 

Currently human type medications are used for cats.  Unfortunately, approximately 30% of cats develop antibodies to the human component of the hormone.  When this happens the medication stops working. 

With the new feline version of the hormone, this will not happen.  All cats will receive the medication.  This study is to determine dosing.  Safety and efficacy studies have been performed.  After this study, the drug results will be submitted to the FDA.

If you feel that your cats may qualify for this study, please call us at (703) 525-1995 or email office@ novacatclinic.com for more information.
