Brief Summary:
Evaluation of safety and efficacy of iron isomaltoside compared to iron sucrose in subjects suffering from IDA

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Iron Deficiency Anemia Drug: Iron isomaltoside Drug: Iron sucrose Phase 3

Detailed Description:

IDA is highly prevalent in subjects with cancer and gastrointestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases, menstruating or pregnant women, and subjects who have undergone bariatric procedure. IDA can have a substantial medical and quality of life (QoL) burden on the subjects, and treatment of these subjects includes controlling the bleeding and replenishing lost iron.

This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of iron isomaltoside compared to iron sucrose in subjects suffering from IDA. In a subfraction of 35 subjects treated with iron isomaltoside ECG and iron will be measured frequently

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary safety outcome measure is the incidence of protocol defined hypersensitivity reactions (number of participants with such events ) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  2. The primary efficacy outcome is the ability to increase Hb (g/dL). [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Protocol defined cardiovascular adverse events (number of participants with such events), [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  2. Changes in S- Ferritin (ng/mL) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  3. Changes in Transferrin saturation (%) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
