Cresp 40 Injection is a highly effective medication used to treat anemia caused by chronic kidney disease or chemotherapy. It plays a crucial role in stimulating the bone marrow to produce an increased number of red blood cells, thereby alleviating anemia and promoting better overall health.


Cresp 40 Injection is primarily prescribed for the treatment of anemia that may have occurred due to chronic kidney disease or as a side effect of chemotherapy. By boosting the production of red blood cells, it helps restore normal hemoglobin levels and combat anemia-related complications.
