Condition(s) targeted: Anemia; Chronic Renal Insufficiency

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Withdrawn

Sponsored by: Sandoz

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Karsten Roth, Study Chair, Affiliation: Hexal AG


This is an open-label, single-arm, baseline-controlled, multicenter efficacy and safety switch study involving 500 CKD subjects suffering from anemia and treated previously with a stable dose of ESA s. c. Correction of anemia will be maintained by s. c. administration of HX575 in two frequencies (i. e. qw and q2w), in order to maintain an Hb target range of 10. 0-12. 0 g/dL.

Clinical Details

Official title: An Open Label, Single-arm, Baseline-controlled, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety and Immunogenicity of Subcutaneous HX575 Administered Once a Week (qw) and Once Every Two Weeks (q2w) in the Treatment of Anemia Associated With Chronic Kidney Disease in Pre-dialysis and Dialysis Subjects

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change in hemoglobin level

Secondary outcome: To document the safety and lack of immunogenicity of HX575. To determine the optimal dosing regimen of HX575 s.c. administration.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Male and female CKD subjects with or without dialysis treatment

- Age > 18 years

per week and in accordance with the relevant SmPC, for at least 3 months with a total weekly dose of ≤ 300 IU/kg/week

- Subjects with controlled symptomatic anemia, defined as mean Hb level between 10. 0

g/dL and 12. 0 g/dL, based on four Hb measurements during the four-week baseline period

- Adequate iron status, serum ferritin ≥ 100 µg/L or transferrin saturation ≥ 20%

- Confirmed negative anti-EPO antibody assay from sample taken at screening visit -4

Exclusion Criteria:

- Systemic cyclosporine
