Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ferumoxytol
Participants received a total of 2 doses of IV ferumoxytol 510 milligrams (mg) (17 milliliters [mL]). The first IV 510 mg dose was administered on Day 1 (Baseline) and second dose 2 to 8 (5±3) days after the first dose, for a total cumulative dose of 1.02 grams (g).
Drug: Ferumoxytol
IV Ferumoxytol
Other Name: Feraheme

Active Comparator: Iron Sucrose
Participants received an IV injection or infusion of iron sucrose 200 mg (10 mL) on Day 1 (Baseline) and on 4 other non-consecutive days over a 14-day period, for a total cumulative dose of 1.0 g. Participants receiving their first ever exposure to IV iron sucrose, received a test dose on Day 1 prior to receiving the remainder of the first dose, as prescribed in the package insert for some countries.
Drug: Iron Sucrose
IV Iron Sucrose
Other Name: Venofer




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Participants Who Achieved A ≥2.0 g/dL Increase In Hemoglobin At Any Time From Baseline To Week 5 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) through Week 5 ]

    Participants who achieved a ≥2.0 g/dL increase in hemoglobin at any time from Baseline up to Week 5 are presented. Increase in hemoglobin at any time from Baseline up to Week 5 was calculated for each participant based on:

    Hemoglobin Change = Hemoglobin (Week X) - Hemoglobin (Baseline), where Week X was any post-Baseline visit up to and including Week 5.

    Baseline was defined as the Day 1 value (prior to injection of study drug). The screening or most recent value prior to Day 1 was used for any participant with missing Day 1 information. Participants with no post-Baseline hemoglobin values were classified as not achieving a ≥2.0 g/dL increase.

    Statistical analysis was performed for data up to Week 5 only.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Change In Hemoglobin From Baseline To Week 5 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Week 5 ]

    Mean change in hemoglobin from Baseline to Week 5 was calculated for each participant as: Hemoglobin Change = Hemoglobin (Week 5) - Hemoglobin (Baseline).

    Baseline was defined as the Day 1 value (prior to injection of study drug). The screening or most recent value prior to Day 1 was used for any participant with missing Day 1 information. If the Week 5 hemoglobin value was missing, the change from Baseline was imputed to be zero.


  2. Participants Achieving A Hemoglobin Level ≥12.0 g/dL At Any Time From Baseline To Week 5 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) through Week 5 ]

    Participants who achieved a ≥12.0 g/dL hemoglobin level at any time from Baseline up to Week 5 are presented. Increase in hemoglobin at any time from Baseline up to Week 5 was calculated for each participant based on:

    Hemoglobin Change = Hemoglobin (Week X) - Hemoglobin (Baseline), where Week X was any post-Baseline visit up to and including Week 5. Baseline was defined as the Day 1 value (prior to injection of study drug). The screening or most recent value prior to Day 1 was used for any participant with missing Day 1 information. Participants without any post-Baseline hemoglobin values were treated as non-responders.


  3. Mean Change In TSAT From Baseline To Week 5 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Week 5 ]

    Mean change in TSAT from Baseline to Week 5 was calculated for each participant as: TSAT Change = TSAT (Week 5) - TSAT (Baseline).

    Baseline was defined as the Day 1 value (prior to injection of study drug). The screening or most recent value prior to Day 1 was used for any participant with missing Day 1 information. If the Week 5 TSAT value was missing, the change from Baseline was imputed to be zero.


  4. Mean Change In Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue Score From Baseline To Week 5 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Week 5 ]

    The FACIT-Fatigue questionnaire is a 13 item questionnaire designed and validated to specifically assess the presence and impact of treatment on fatigue and related symptoms, such as tiredness, on health-related quality of life in anemic participants with cancer. The questionnaire has 13 items, each measured on a 4-point Likert scale. Scoring ranges from 0 (the most fatigued) to 52 (the least fatigued) points, with higher scores representing better functioning or less fatigue.

    Mean change in FACIT-Fatigue Score from Baseline to Week 5 was calculated for each participant as:

    FACIT-Fatigue Score Change = FACIT-Fatigue Score (Week 5) - FACIT-Fatigue Score (Baseline).

    Baseline was defined as the Day 1 value (prior to first dose of study drug).The screening or most recent value prior to Day 1 was used for any participant with missing Day 1 information. If the Week 5 FACIT-Fatigue Score value was missing, the change from Baseline was imputed to be zero.


  5. Time To Hemoglobin Increase Of ≥2.0 g/dL Or Hemoglobin Value Of ≥12.0 g/dL From Baseline [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Day 1) up to Week 5 ]
    The time to hemoglobin increase of ≥2.0 g/dL or hemoglobin value of ≥12.0 g/dL was defined as the days from Baseline (Day 1) to the first time the participant had an increase in hemoglobin of ≥2.0 g/dL or hemoglobin value of ≥12.0 g/dL, and was calculated using a Kaplan-Meier curve. Participants who did not have a hemoglobin increase of ≥2.0 g/dL or to a hemoglobin level ≥12.0 g/dL were censored at their last visit day. Participants without any post-Baseline study visits were not included.
