Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: FERINJECT® (Ferric carboxymaltose) Drug: Ferric carboxymaltose
Dosage form: 5% w/v iron containing 50 mg iron per mL, as sterile solution of FERINJECT® in water for injection. In case of drip infusion FERINJECT® (10 to 20 ml) must be diluted only in sterile 0.9% sodium chloride (max 250 ml) FERINJECT® will be administered via i.v. drip infusion. Minimum administration time 15 minutes Dosage: 500 mg, 1000 mg, 1500 mg, according to patients' Hb and body weight
Other Name: FERINJECT®
Active Comparator: VENOFER® (Iron Sucrose) Drug: Iron Sucrose

VENOFER® will be administered via i.v. drip infusion, diluted only in sterile 0.9% sodium chloride solution as follows:

• 10 mL Venofer® (200 mg iron) in maximum 200 mL sterile 0.9% sodium chloride solution in at least 30 minutes.

The first 25 mL of solution should be infused as a test dose over a period of 15 minutes. If no adverse reactions occur, use infusion rate no more than 50 mL in 15 minutes.

The individual iron deficit will be calculated using the modified formula of Ganzoni.

If the patient's body mass index is >25, a normalised weight will be used for the calculation of iron deficit. Normalised weight = 25 x height [m] x height [m].

The calculated cumulative VENOFER® dose is to be rounded up or down to the nearest 200 mg.

Patients will receive one 200 mg VENOFER® infusion, twice a week, up to 11 times (max dosage 2200 mg), depending on their calculated iron deficit.

Other Name: VENOFER®
