What is Oxbryta
Oxbryta is a prescription medication that is used to treat a rare type of anemia called beta thalassemia. It is a form of erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) that is made from human proteins. Oxbryta is given by injection into a vein (IV) once a week.
Beta thalassemia is a genetic disorder that causes a decrease in the production of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. This can lead to anemia, a condition in which there are not enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to the body’s tissues.
Oxbryta is a man-made form of erythropoietin (EPO), a hormone that helps the body produce red blood cells. Oxbryta works by stimulating the body to produce more red blood cells. This can help improve the symptoms of beta thalassemia.
