Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental Drug Drug: FG-4592
Different dose levels and schedules

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Hemoglobin response to treatment using various FG-4592 dosing regimens [ Time Frame: week 16-24 ]
    Cumulative number (%) of subjects with hemoglobin ≥ 11 g/dL and increase from baseline ≥ 1 g/dL

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate FG-4592 dose requirement to correct Hemoglobin levels in target patient population [ Time Frame: 16-24 weeks ]
  2. Estimate pharmacokinetic parameters of FG-4592 in subset of patients [ Time Frame: week 2 ]
    Plasma FG-4592 concentration before and after dosing for exploratory population pharmacokinetics (PK) analysis

  3. Assess iron utilization parameters during anemia therapy [ Time Frame: 16-24 weeks ]
    Iron utilization parameters: transferrin, Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), Transferrin saturation (TSAT), ferritin, serum iron at specified time points

  4. Assess Quality of Life Measures [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 9, Week 17, End of Treatment ]
    Quality of life questionnaire scores
