Further study details as provided by University Hospital Muenster:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in hemoglobin from baseline to day 43

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in ferritin and transferrin saturation from baseline to day 43; incidence and severity of adverse events

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: March 2004
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2005
Detailed Description:
This is a randomized, open label, phase IV study in anemic predialysis patients (Hb between 8 and 11.5 g/dl) who require iron supplementation. The duration of the study for each patient will be approximately 6 months. Patients will be randomized to one of two treatment arms and admitted to the anemia correction phase (days 1-43). Treatment will be intravenous iron sucrose alone versus iron sucrose plus rhEPO. The main treatment evaluation will at the end of the correction phase: The primary end-point will be the change of hemoglobin during correction phase. Secondary end-points will be the change of ferritin and transferrin saturation from baseline to day 43. Safety assessments will include recording of adverse events, vital signs, physical examinations and clinical laboratory tests. Incidence and severity of adverse events will be compared between the two different treatment arms.
