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 to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety and Immunogenicity of Subcutaneous HX575 in the Treatment of Anemia Associated With Chronic Kidney Disease (SWEEP)


Lead sponsor: Sandoz

Brief Summary

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.
