|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Randomised Controlled Open-label Study to Evaluate Efficacy & Safety of Intravenous Ferric Carboxymaltose Versus no Treatment in Anaemic Subjects With Multiple Myeloma & Iron Restricted Erythropoiesis Receiving Chemotherapy|
- Change in haemoglobin from baseline to Week 8 [ Time Frame: week 8 post baseline ]
- The percentage of subjects with blood haemoglobin increase of at least 1 g/dL in the absence of any red cell transfusion or ESA treatment. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks post baseline ]
- Change in haemoglobin from baseline to Week 4 [ Time Frame: week 4 post baseline ]
- Change in haemoglobin from baseline to Week 6 [ Time Frame: week 6 post baseline ]

|Primary Completion Date:||July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Active Comparator: Ferric carboxymaltose
Subjects will receive a total dose of 1,000 mg iron as FCM on the day of the next scheduled chemotherapy cycle after randomisation or continuous chemotherapy. In subjects with weight ≤66 kg, the first dose iron will be 500 mg; the second dose (500 mg) will be administered on the visit 3 (week 2).
Drug: Ferric carboxymaltose
Subjects will receive a single dose of 1,000 mg iron as FCM infusion at baseline.
Subjects of bw ≤66 kg will receive a single dose of 500 mg iron as FCM infusion at baseline (Week 0) and at Visit 3 (Week 2).
Ferric carboxymaltose will be administered on the same day with chemotherapy treatment or within 24 hours before or after the chemotherapy. For subjects with bw ≤66 kg, if no chemotherapy planned for the visit 4 (Week 2), the second FCM dose should be infused independent of chemotherapy.
Other Name: Ferinject
No Intervention: Local standard of care.
Subjects will be treated according to the local institutional practice.
