Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to find out if roxadustat (also known as FG-4592) is safe and effective for the treatment of anemia in people receiving chemotherapy treatment for cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chemotherapy Induced Anemia Drug: Roxadustat (FG-4592) Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This study consists of three periods:

  1. Screening Period up to 28 days
  2. Treatment Period of 16 weeks
  3. A Follow-up period of 4 weeks.

A total of up to approximately 100 patients will be enrolled to receive roxadustat in an open-label manner.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Roxadustat (FG-4592) Drug: Roxadustat (FG-4592)
Roxadustat will be dosed orally three times a week.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum change in Hemoglobin within 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 16 ]
    The primary efficacy endpoint is maximum change in hemoglobin within 16 weeks from baseline without RBC transfusion

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean change in hemoglobin level [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 16 ]
    Mean change in hemoglobin level from baseline to week 16 (without RBC transfusion)

  2. Change in hemoglobin [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 16 ]
    Change in hemoglobin from baseline through Week 8, 12, 16

  3. RBC transfusion [ Time Frame: Baseline to end of study (Week 16) ]
    Number (%) of patients who had a RBC transfusion from baseline to end of study (week 16)
