The hypothesis of this trial is that the test drug (Eritromax ®) pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics parameters are similar to the comparator drug (Eprex ®) in healthy subjects following administration of multiple intravenous dose. The objective of this randomized, parallel, clinical trial is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of the test drug Eritromax® marketed by Blau Farmacêutica, compared to the comparator drug Eprex®, produced by Janssen-Cilag, by assessing plasma concentration of the drug and the reticulocyte count following a multiple intravenous administration during 4 weeks of 100 IU/kg in healthy subjects.
