Link to the current ClinicalTrials.gov record.

Condition(s) targeted: Anemia

Intervention: Methoxy Polyethylene Glycol-Epoetin Beta (Drug); Epoetin alfa (Drug); Epoetin beta (Drug); Darbepoetin alfa (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Hoffmann-La Roche

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Clinical Trials, Study Director, Affiliation: Hoffmann-La Roche


This study assessed the long-term efficacy, safety, and tolerability of intravenous (iv) or subcutaneous (sc) methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta in chronic kidney disease patients with renal anemia. Eligible patients were those who were receiving stable maintenance therapy with methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta or erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) in Phase II or III clinical studies. They continued to receive methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta or comparator ESAs at the same weekly dose and by the same route of administration (sc or iv) as in the qualifying studies.
