Brief Summary:
This open label, single arm study will assess the efficacy for long-term maintenance of haemoglobin levels and the safety and tolerability of methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta [Mircera] in dialysis patients with chronic renal anaemia. Patients on regular long-term haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis will receive monthly subcutaneous or intravenous Mircera for 6 months. Target sample size is <200 patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Single Arm Procedure: Dialysis
regular haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis

Drug: methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta [Mircera]
once monthly, subcutaneously or intravenously, for 32 weeks




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Maintaining Average Hemoglobin (Hb) Concentration Within the Target Range [ Time Frame: Weeks 1 to 32 ]
    Percentage of participants who maintained the Hb concentration within target range (between 10.0 and 12.0 grams per deciliter [g/dL]) throughout the treatment period were reported.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Monthly Hb Values [ Time Frame: Baseline, Months 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 ]
    The baseline (reference) hemoglobin was defined as the average of the three assessments recorded during the screening and baseline visits (Week -2, -1, and 0).

  2. Change in Hb Concentration Between Reference and Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Baseline, Months 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 ]
    The baseline (reference) hemoglobin was defined as the average of the three assessments recorded during the screening and baseline visits (Week -2, -1, and 0).

  3. Mean Time Participants Spent Having Hb Concentration Within Target Range [ Time Frame: Weeks 1 to 32 ]
    Target Hb concentration was between 10.0 and 12.0 g/dL.

  4. Percentage of Participants Requiring Dose Adjustments [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 1; Month 1 to 2; Month 2 to 3; Month 3 to 4; Month 4 to 5; Month 5 to 6; Month 6 to 7; Month 7 to 8 ]
    Dose adjustment included: Dose Increase; No Change; and Dose Decreased. Participants who did not have this data available are reported as Not Done. Results are reported for overall treatment arm.
