This single arm study will assess the efficacy and safety of monthly administration of subcutaneous Mircera for the maintenance of hemoglobin levels in patients with chronic kidney disease on peritoneal dialysis. Patients currently receiving maintenance treatment with subcutaneous ESA will receive monthly subcutaneous injections of Mircera, with the starting dose derived from the last weekly ESA they had been receiving. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is 100-500 individuals.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients maintaining average Hb concentration within range of 10-12g/dL during Efficacy Evaluation Period (EEP). [ Time Frame: Weeks 16-24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients maintaining all Hb concentrations within range of 10-12g/dL during EEP. [ Time Frame: Weeks 16-24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of patients maintaining average Hb concentration within range of 10-12g/dL, and with Hb variation <= +/- 1.0g/dL compared to baseline. [ Time Frame: Weeks 16-52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean change in Hb concentration; dose adjustments; RBC transfusions [ Time Frame: Throughout study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean time spent in Hb range of 10-12g/dL [ Time Frame: Weeks 16-52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • AEs, laboratory parameters. [ Time Frame: Throughout study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
