Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Serum Phosphorus Levels From Week 12 to Week 16 (LOCF) (ITT2) [ Time Frame: week16 minus week12 ]
    ITT2 population included all re-randomised subjects who completed 12 weeks in the MCI-196 treatment group and received at least 1 dose of study medication in the placebo-controlled withdrawal period and had at least 1 central serum phosphorus value after 12 weeks.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Serum Phosphorus Levels From Baseline to Week 12 (LOCF) (ITT1) [ Time Frame: week12 minus week0 ]
    ITT1 population included all subjects who received a randomisation number (at Week 0), took at least 1 dose of study medication and had at least 1 central serum phosphorus value after the start of study medication.
