Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Pegol-Sihematide, as compared with recombinant human erythropoietin injection (CHO Cell), ESPO, in anemia treatment in patients with non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Dialysis-Dependent Chronic Kidney Disease Drug: Pegol-Sihematide Drug: ESPO Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This is a phase 3, randomized, multicenter, open-label, active-controlled, non-inferiority trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Pegol-Sihematide versus ESPO. Study included a period of 4 weeks for screening, 16 weeks for dose adjustment, 8 weeks for evaluation, and 28 weeks for extensional treatment period. Eligible patients were centrally allocated in a 2:1 ratio to receive Pegol-Sihematide subcutaneously once every 4 weeks, starting at 0.04 mg per kilogram of body weight, or ESPO once every 1 week or 2 weeks, starting dose of 6000 IU per week. Doses of both drugs were adjusted to achieve and maintain hemoglobin levels between 10.0 and 12.0 g per deciliter for 52 weeks or more. The primary efficacy end point was the mean change from the baseline hemoglobin level to the mean level during the evaluation period; non-inferiority was established if the lower limit of the two-sided 95% confidence interval was -1.0 g per deciliter or higher. Cardiovascular safety was evaluated on the basis of an adjudicated composite end point.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: HS-20039 Pegol-Sihematide
Pegol-Sihematide's starting dose of 0.025 milligram per kilogram (mg/kg) administered subcutaneously (SC) once every 4 weeks (Q4W) for a total of 13 doses
Drug: Pegol-Sihematide
Participants received Pegol-Sihematide by subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks. The starting dose was 0.04 milligram per kilogram (mg/kg) and was adjusted throughout the study to maintain a hemoglobin target range of 10.0-12.0 grams per deciliter (g/dL).
Other Name: HS-20039

Active Comparator: ReHuman Erythropoietin Injection
ESPO(Recombinant Human Erythropoietin Injection) ESPO's starting dose was 6000 IU per week
Drug: ESPO
Participants received ESPO by subcutaneous injection weekly. The starting dose was 6000 IU and was adjusted according to the instruction to maintain a hemoglobin target range of 10.0-12.0 grams per deciliter (g/dL).
Other Name: Recombinant Human Erythropoietin Injection




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The mean change from the baseline hemoglobin level to the mean level during the evaluation period [ Time Frame: Week 17-24 ]
    The primary efficacy end point is the mean change from the baseline hemoglobin level to the mean level during the evaluation period. The baseline hemoglobin value is the value on the day of randomization. The mean hemoglobin during the evaluation period was calculated as the mean of all available hemoglobin values during that period. Hemoglobin measurements will be performed at baseline and thereafter every 2 weeks (for the dose adjustment and the evaluation periods). Efficacy will be also assessed as the mean change from baseline in hemoglobin levels during 4-week intervals.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The mean change from the baseline hemoglobin level to the mean level at each visit [ Time Frame: Week 0-52 ]
    The mean change from the baseline hemoglobin level to the mean level at each visit point. Hemoglobin measurements will be performed at every 2 weeks during the dose adjustment period (0-16 weeks) and the evaluation period (17-24 weeks) , and every 4 weeks during the extended period (25-52 weeks).

  2. The proportion of patients with hemoglobin within the target range of 10.0 to 12.0 g/dL during the evaluation period [ Time Frame: Week 17-24 ]
    The proportion of patients achieving a response (hemoglobin maintain in 10.0 to 12.0 g/dL during the previous 4 weeks), will be measured during the evaluation period.

  3. The mean dose of patients with Pegol-Sihematide achieving a target hemoglobin range during the evaluation period [ Time Frame: Week 17-24 ]
    The mean dose of patients with Pegol-Sihematide will be calculated for achieving a target hemoglobin range (10.0 to 12.0 g/dL) during the evaluation period.

  4. First time for patients achieving a response to hemoglobin during any treatment periods [ Time Frame: Week 0-52 ]
    First time for patients achieving a response (hemoglobin increase in ≥ 1.0 g/dL) during any trial periods, including the dose adjustment period (0-16 weeks), the evaluation period (17-24 weeks) and the extended period (25-52 weeks).

  5. First time for patients achieving a target hemoglobin range during any trial periods [ Time Frame: Week 0-52 ]
    First time for patients achieving a target hemoglobin range (hemoglobin maintain in 10.0 to 12.0 g/dL or increase in ≥ 1.0 g/dL) during any trial periods, including the dose adjustment period (0-16 weeks), the evaluation period (17-24 weeks) and the extended period (25-52 weeks).


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. The SAE of Pegol-Sihematide [ Time Frame: Week 0-52 ]
    The incidence of patients who reported serious adverse events (SAE).

  2. The safety of Pegol-Sihematide [ Time Frame: Week 0-52 ]
    The incidence of patients with risk cardiovascular events, including death, stroke, myocardial infarction and severe congestive heart failure, unstable angina, arrhythmia requiring hospitalization.

  3. The antibody of Pegol-Sihematide [ Time Frame: Week 0-52 ]
    The antibody to Pegol-Sihematide is the anti-drug antibodies of the Pegol-Sihematide.
