Hoffmann-La Roche
  Purpose
This prospective, multicenter, observational study will evaluate the impact of comorbidity factors on the hemoglobin level in participants with chronic kidney disease who are not on dialysis and initiated on treatment with methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta (Mircera). Data will be collected for 9 months after initiation of methoxy polyethylene glycol-epoetin beta treatment.

Condition Intervention
Renal Anemia of Chronic Kidney Disease Drug: Methoxy Polyethylene Glycol-Epoetin Beta

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Non-interventional Study to Assess the Hemoglobin Level Depending on the Comorbidity Index in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients Not in Dialysis Treated With Mircera®

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With an Increase From Baseline in Hemoglobin Level of Greater Than or Equal to (>/=) 1 g/dL or a Hemoglobin Level Between 10 and 12 g/dL After 9 Months of Treatment Without any Transfusional Recourse [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 9 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemoglobin Levels According to Liu Index and Resistance Factors [ Time Frame: Baseline, Months 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 ]
  • Average Dose of Mircera in Total Population [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 9 months ]
  • Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) in Total Population [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 9 months ]
  • Average Dose of Mircera in Subgroups as Defined by the Comorbidities List Used for the Charlson Comorbidities Index Calculation [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 9 months ]
  • Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) in in Subgroups as Defined by the Comorbidities List Used for the Charlson Comorbidities Index Calculation [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 9 months ]
  • Duration of Treatment With Mircera [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 9 months ]
  • Number of Participants Who Received Concomitant Treatment (Known as Potentially Resistant Factors) for Renal Anemia [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 9 month ]

Enrollment: 551
