Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to determine whether roxadustat is effective and safe compared to epoetin alfa in the maintenance treatment of anemia in stable hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis subjects when converted from their existing stable erythropoiesis stimulating agent treatment.

Amendment 1: The primary purpose of this amendment is to evaluate safety and efficacy of roxadustat compared to epoetin-alfa in newly initiated (incident) dialysis subjects who have been on ESA (≥ 4 weeks) for treatment of anemia prior to screening


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
CKD Anemia in Stable Dialysis Patients Drug: Epoetin Alfa Drug: FG-4592 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This study will consist of three study periods as follows:

  1. Screening Period of up to 6 weeks (8 weeks if on Mircera)
  2. Treatment Period: a minimum of 52 weeks, a maximum of up to 3 years.
  3. A Follow-up period of 4 weeks.

A total of up to 820 patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either roxadustat or Epoetin alfa (Active Control) in an open-label manner.

Under Amendment 1, approximately 150 incident dialysis subjects will be randomized to either roxadustat or epoetin alfa (active control) in a 1:1 ratio

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary efficacy endpoint for US is defined as each subject's Hb change from baseline to the average level during the evaluation period, defined as Weeks 28 to 52. [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]

    Hb values under the influence of rescue therapy will not be censored for the primary analysis. The analysis will be based on the ITT Population.

    The primary efficacy endpoint for Ex-US is defined as the Hb change from baseline to the average Hb of Weeks 28 to 36, without having received rescue therapy within 6 weeks prior to and during this 8-week evaluation period and will be based on the PPS population.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. US (FDA) submission: The proportion of subjects with a mean Hb level ≥10.0 g/dL during the evaluation period [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 52 ]
  2. Ex-US submissions: Hemoglobin response (mean Hb 10.0 to 12.0 g/dL), during Weeks 28 to 36 without having received rescue therapy [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 52 ]
  3. Average monthly IV Iron use per subject [ Time Frame: Weeks 1 to 36 ]
  4. Change from baseline in low density lipoprotein (LDL) [ Time Frame: Weeks 12 to 28 ]
  5. Change from baseline in SF-36 Physical Functioning (PF) sub-score [ Time Frame: Weeks 20 to 28 ]
  6. Change from baseline in SF-36 Vitality (VT) sub-score [ Time Frame: Weeks 20 to 28 ]
  7. Effect on predialysis blood pressure (BP) [ Time Frame: Weeks 1 to 36 ]
