Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Daprodustat
Participants will receive oral daprodustat once daily.
Drug: Daprodustat
The initial dose or oral daprodustat for ESA naïve subjects is based on Hgb and for ESA users is based on prior ESA dose. The dose is adjusted thereafter in order to achieve the target range.

Drug: Placebo
Oral placebo tablets will be taken from Week -4 up to randomization (Day 1).

Drug: Iron Therapy
Participants will receive supplemental iron therapy if ferritin is <=100 ng/mL or TSAT is <=20%. The investigator will choose the route of administration and dose of iron.

Active Comparator: Darbepoetin alfa
Participants will be administered darbepoetin alfa subcutaneously (SC).
Drug: Darbepoetin alfa
The initial dose of darbepoetin alfa to be administered for SC injection for ESA naïve subjects is based in Hgb and weight, and for ESA users is based on converting the prior ESA dose to the nearest available study darbepoetin alfa dose. The dose is adjusted thereafter in order to achieve the target range. IV darbepoetin alfa can be considered for participants transitioning to hemodialysis.

Drug: Placebo
Oral placebo tablets will be taken from Week -4 up to randomization (Day 1).

Drug: Iron Therapy
Participants will receive supplemental iron therapy if ferritin is <=100 ng/mL or TSAT is <=20%. The investigator will choose the route of administration and dose of iron.

    The SF-36 acute version 2 is a 36-item generic quality of life instrument designed to measure a participant's level of performance in the following 8 health domains: physical functioning, role-physical (role limitations caused by physical problems), social functioning, bodily pain, mental health, role-emotional (role limitations caused by emotional problems), vitality and general health. Each domain is scored from 0 (poorer health) to 100 (better health). Vitality score ranges from 0 to 100; higher scores represent better health. Change from Baseline was calculated as on-treatment visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was defined as the latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before the randomization date.

  34. Change From Baseline in On-treatment Physical Functioning Domain Scores Using SF-36 HRQoL Questionnaire at Weeks 8, 12, 28, 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Pre-dose on Day 1), Weeks 8, 12, 28 and 52 ]
    The SF-36 acute version 2 is a 36-item generic quality of life instrument designed to measure a participant's level of performance in the following 8 health domains: physical functioning, role-physical (role limitations caused by physical problems), social functioning, bodily pain, mental health, role-emotional (role limitations caused by emotional problems), vitality and general health. Each domain is scored from 0 (poorer health) to 100 (better health). Physical functioning score ranges from 0 to 100; higher scores represent better health. Change from Baseline was calculated as on-treatment visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was defined as the latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before the randomization date.

  35. Change From Baseline in On-treatment Health Utility EuroQol 5 Dimensions 5 Level (EQ-5D-5L) Questionnaire Score at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Pre-dose on Day 1) and Week 52 ]
    EQ-5D-5L is self-assessment questionnaire, consisting of 5 items covering 5 dimensions (mobility, self care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression). Each dimension is measured by 5-point Likert scale (1=no problems, 2=slight problems, 3=moderate problems, 4=severe problems and 5=extreme problems). Responses for 5 dimensions together formed a 5-figure description of health state (e.g.11111 indicates no problems in all 5 dimensions). Each of these 5 figure health states were converted to a single index score by applying country-specific value set formula that attaches weights to dimensions and levels. Range for EQ-5D-5L index score is -0.594 (worst health) to 1 (full health state). Change from Baseline was calculated as on-treatment visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before randomization date.

  36. Change From Baseline in On-treatment EQ Visual Analogue Scale (EQ-VAS) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Pre-dose on Day 1) and Week 52 ]
    The EQ VAS records the respondent's self-rated health on a vertical VAS, ranging from 0 to 100, where 0 represents the worst imaginable health and 100 represents the best imaginable health. Change from Baseline was calculated as on-treatment visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was defined as the latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before the randomization date.

  37. Change From Baseline in On-treatment Chronic Kidney Disease- Anemia Symptoms Questionnaire (CKD-AQ) at Weeks 8, 12, 28, 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Weeks 8, 12, 28, 52 ]
    CKD-AQ is 21-item patient reported outcome measure assessing symptoms and symptom impact in participants with anemia associated with CKD. It had 3 domains: 1.Tired/Low Energy (LE)/Weak scale consisting of 10 items; 2.Chest Pain (CP)/Shortness of Breath (SOB) scale consisting of 4 items; and 3.Cognitive (Cog) scale consisting of 3 items. The 4 CKD-AQ single items are: shortness of breath, no activity; severity-short breath (S-SB), resting; difficulty standing (diff. std.)for long time (LT) and difficulty sleeping (diff sleep). Single-item were recorded based on a 0-100 scoring with 0=worst possible and 100=best possible score. Three domains scores were calculated as average of items in each domain and ranged from 0-100 where 0=worst possible and 100=best possible score. Change from Baseline was calculated as on-treatment visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was defined as the latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before the randomization date.

  38. Change From Baseline in On-treatment Patient Global Impression of Severity (PGI-S) at Weeks 8, 12, 28, 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Pre-dose on Day 1), Weeks 8, 12, 28 and 52 ]
    The PGI-S is a 1-item questionnaire designed to assess participant's impression of disease severity on a 5-point disease severity scale (0=absent, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe, or 4=very severe). A higher score indicated more disease severity. Change from Baseline was calculated as on-treatment visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was defined as the latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before the randomization date.

  39. Change From Baseline in Post-randomization Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Pre-dose on Day 1) and Week 52 ]
    Blood samples were collected to analyze estimated glomerular filtration rate. Change from Baseline was calculated as post-Baseline visit value minus Baseline value. Baseline was defined as the latest non-missing pre-dose assessment on or before the randomization date.
