Arm/Group Title Epoetin Hospira Epogen
Hide Arm/Group Description During titration period participants who were on Epogen intravenous (IV) regimen prior to this study, were titrated and optimally stabilized to receive subcutaneous (SC) injection of Epoetin Hospira. Participants who were on Epogen SC regimen prior to this study were continued to receive same as a part of routine clinical practice and did not receive any study treatment during titration period. Dose of study treatment was adjusted to maintain hemoglobin (Hb) level from 9 to 11 gram per deciliter (g/dL). Drug was administered 1 to 3 times per week in titration period (Week 1 to Week 18). During maintenance period participants received SC injection of Epoetin Hospira at optimal dose demonstrated in titration period 1 to 3 times per week up to 16 weeks (Week 19 to Week 34). Participants were followed up to 4 weeks after last dose of study treatment (up to Week 38). During titration period participants who were on Epogen IV regimen prior to enrollment in this study, were titrated and optimally stabilized to receive SC injection of Epogen.
