Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 3, Open-label, Randomised, Active-controlled, Parallel Group, Multicentre Study to Investigate the Safety and Efficacy of PA21 (Velphoro®) and Calcium Acetate (Phoslyra®) in Paediatric and Adolescent CKD Patients with Hyperphosphataemia. The aim of this Phase 3 clinical study is to demonstrate similar efficacy of PA21 (Velphoro) in paediatric and adolescent patients with CKD, and to provide safety and dosing information for this patient population. The Phoslyra (comparator) group provides information for a descriptive comparison of PA21 against a commonly used calcium-based phosphate binder (calcium acetate).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PA21 (Velphoro®)

PA21 (Velphoro®), chewable tablets 500 mg iron

PA21 (Velphoro®), chewable tablets 250 mg iron

PA21 (Velphoro®), powder for oral suspension 500 mg iron

PA21 (Velphoro®), powder for oral suspension 250 mg iron

PA21 (Velphoro®), powder for oral suspension 125 mg iron

Drug: PA21 (Velphoro®)

During Stage 1 (Open-Label Dose Titration; up to 10 weeks), PA21 subjects will receive PA21 at a starting dose based on their age. Dose of PA21 will be increased or decreased as required for efficacy (to achieve age specific target serum phosphorus level), provided a subject has been receiving that dose for a minimum of 2 weeks, and for safety or tolerability reasons at any time.

During Stage 2 (Open-Label Safety Extension, 24 week safety extension),subjects will continue on the dose received at the end of Stage 1, unless a dose change is required. Doses may be titrated for efficacy (to achieve age specific target Serum phosphorus levels), provided a subject has been receiving that dose for a minimum of 2 weeks, and for safety or tolerability reasons at any time during Stage 2.

Other Name: sucroferric oxyhydroxide

Active Comparator: Calcium Acetate (Phoslyra®)
Calcium Acetate (Phoslyra®) - Oral Solution: 667 mg calcium acetate per 5 mL.
Drug: Calcium Acetate (Phoslyra®)

During Stage 1 (Open-Label Dose Titration; up to 10 weeks), Phoslyra subjects will receive Phoslyra either at a starting dose based on their weight or, if considered more appropriate by the Investigator, at an equivalent dose of their previous phosphate binder (PB), calcium-based or sevelamer. Dose of Phoslyra will be increased or decreased as required for efficacy (to achieve age specific target serum phosphorus level), provided a subject has been receiving that dose for a minimum of 2 weeks, and for safety or tolerability reasons at any time.

During Stage 2 (Open-Label Safety Extension, 24 week safety extension),subjects will continue on the dose received at the end of Stage 1, unless a dose change is required. Doses may be titrated for efficacy (to achieve age specific target Serum phosphorus levels), provided a subject has been receiving that dose for a minimum of 2 weeks, and for safety or tolerability reasons at any time during Stage 2.
