Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ferric Carboxymaltose (FCM)
Up to a maximum cumulative dose of 2,500 mg administered IV based on iron-deficit calculations; the calculated dose was given in divided doses of up to 1,000 mg weekly.
Drug: Ferric Carboxymaltose (FCM)
Up to a maximum cumulative dose of 2,500 mg administered IV based on iron-deficit calculations; the calculated dose was given in divided doses of up to 1,000 mg weekly.

Active Comparator: Ferrous Sulfate tablets

Drug: Ferrous Sulfate tablets
325 mg of ferrous sulfate 3 times daily (TID) x 6 weeks.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients Classified as a 'Clinical Success'. Clinical Success Was Defined as the Number of Subjects With an Increase in Hemoglobin of >12 g/dL [ Time Frame: anytime between baseline and end of study or time to intervention ]
  2. Reported Adverse Events [ Time Frame: anytime between baseline and end of study or time to intervention ]
