To anyone who can help,

Can anyone tell me if there's a difference between EPOGEN and PROCRIT at 
the molecular level?  I understand that EPOGEN is given to dialysis 
patients and PROCRIT is given to people suffering from cancer and HIV/ 
AIDS? 

As the two drugs are given to different classes of patient, I assume that 
they're different drugs?

On the other hand, I guess that it MIGHT be due to some legal ruling that 
the maunfacturers of these drugs have been told to keep to  different 
parts of the market and in order to help people differentiate, one drug 
has been given two names?

If no-one can answer these questions directly, I'd appreciate it if 
someone can advise me as to where I might find the information.

Thanks for your time folks,  Alan Mercer.
