Detailed Description:

This is an open-label, prospective study comparing IV iron supplementation to standard care in anemic patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. After successfully completing a 6 month enrollment period, qualifying patients were randomized to receive 1000mg of IV iron over a four week period, or no iron supplementation. Erythropoietin regimen was to remain stable. Patients were followed to day 71 for safety and efficacy.
