Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with Serious and Non-serious Treatment-emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: up to Week 28 ]
  2. Number of Participants with Clinically Significant Laboratory Abnormalities or Changes in Laboratory Results [ Time Frame: up to Week 24 ]
  3. Number of Participants with Treatment-emergent Adverse Events Leading to the Discontinuation of Ferric Citrate [ Time Frame: up to Week 28 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :

  2. Change from Baseline in Transferrin Saturation (TSAT) to Week 24/Early Termination Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 24 ]
  3. Change from Baseline in Ferritin to Week 24/Early Termination Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 24 ]
  4. Change from Baseline in Serum Phosphorus to Week 24/Early Termination Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 24 ]
  5. Change from Baseline in Calcium to Week 24/Early Termination Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 24 ]
  6. Change from Baseline in Bicarbonate to Week 24/Early Termination Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 24 ]
