Reporting Groups
  Description
Peginesatide 0.025 mg/kg Participants received peginesatide by subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks. The starting dose was 0.025 milligram per kilogram (mg/kg) and was adjusted throughout the study to maintain a hemoglobin target range of 11.0-12.0 grams per deciliter (g/dL).
Peginesatide 0.04 mg/kg Participants received peginesatide by subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks. The starting dose was 0.04 mg/kg and was adjusted throughout the study to maintain a hemoglobin target range of 11.0-12.0 g/dL.
Darbepoetin Alfa Participants received darbepoetin alfa by subcutaneous injection once every 2 weeks, as prescribed. The starting dose was 0.75 microgram per kilogram (mcg/kg) and was adjusted throughout the study to maintain a hemoglobin target range of 11.0-12.0 g/dL.
