Drug: Methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (C.E.R.A.)
Subcutaneous methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (C.E.R.A.) at starting dose of 120, 200, or 360 mcg every 4 weeks for 20 weeks. Further dose adjustments will be performed during the study depending on the participant's blood hemoglobin levels.

- Percentage of Participants Maintaining Mean Hemoglobin Concentration Within Plus or Minus (+/-) 1 Gram Per Deciliter (g/dL) of Their Reference Hemoglobin and Within the Target Range [ Time Frame: Week 17 up to Week 24 ]Percentage of participants maintaining the mean hemoglobin concentration within +/- 1.0 g/dL of their reference hemoglobin value and within the target range of 10.5 to 12.5 g/dL during the efficacy evaluation period (EEP) was reported. The reference hemoglobin value was defined as the mean of the 5 assessments recorded during the stability verification period (SVP) at Weeks -4, -3, -2, -1 and 0. The mean hemoglobin concentration for each individual participant during the EEP (Week 17 to Week 24) was estimated as a time adjusted average.
- Change in Hemoglobin Concentration Between Reference (SVP) and EEP [ Time Frame: Week 17 up to Week 24 ]The reference hemoglobin value was defined as the mean of the 5 assessments recorded during the SVP at Weeks -4, -3, -2, -1 and 0. The mean change of the time adjusted average of hemoglobin from reference value obtained during the SVP (Week -4 up to Week 0) and the value during EEP (Week 17 up to Week 24) was assessed.
- Percentage of Participants Maintaining Hemoglobin Concentration Within the Target Range During EEP [ Time Frame: Week 17 up to Week 24 ]Percentage of participants maintaining hemoglobin concentration within the target range of 10.5 to 12.5 g/dL during EEP (Week 17 to Week 24) was reported.
- Mean Time Spent by Participants With Hemoglobin Concentration in the Target Range During the EEP [ Time Frame: Week 17 up to Week 24 ]Mean time spent by participants with hemoglobin concentration within the target range of 10.5 to 12.5 g/dL during the EEP (Week 17 to Week 24) was reported.
- Percentage of Participants Requiring Any Dose Adjustment [ Time Frame: Week 1 up to Week 16 and Week 17 up to Week 24 ]Percentage of participants requiring any adjustment in the dose of study drug during the dose titration period (DTP: Week 1 to Week 16) and EEP (Week 17 to Week 24) was reported.
- Percentage of Participants With Red Blood Cell Transfusion During the Study [ Time Frame: Week 0 up to Week 24 ]Percentage of participant who required red blood cell transfusion during the study was reported.
- Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Week 0 up to Week 24 ]An AE was any untoward medical occurrence attributed to study drug in a participant who received study drug. An SAE was an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly. AEs included both serious as well as non-serious AEs.
