Anemia & This Study
Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) affects over 1.2 billion people around the world. Side effects of IDA are extreme fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, and feeling cold.
Iron replacement therapy is essential for treating Iron Deficiency Anemia. But,
many people do not get adequate results, or suffer undesirable side effects, with
oral iron therapy. This investigational medication is being evaluated for its safety and effectiveness for IDA.
What is Clinical Research?
Clinical research is the study of health and illness in people and is at the heart of all medical advancement. It is the way we learn how to prevent and treat illness. People participate in clinical trials for a number of reasons. Often, participants are healthy volunteers participating to help others by contributing to medical science. Additionally, some participants with prior illness or disease participate to help others while also possibly receiving investigational medication before it is available to the general public and study-related care for their condition.
Why should I participate?
This medication may increase hemoglobin levels in people diagnosed with Iron Deficiency Anemia. Your anemia might not get better or may even get worse while
you are in the study.
There are risks associated with any medication. Your doctor will review the risks with you prior to the start of the trial.
Am I eligible?
• Are you 18 years of age or older?
• Have you been diagnosed with Iron
• Are you unable to take oral iron or is it
If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to participate in this study.
How long is the study?
This study lasts approximately 9 weeks, including a screening period of up to 30
days, followed by 4 visits over a 5 week period.
How does the study work?
During the study, you will be randomly assigned to receive one of two study medications that are a type of iron replacement. Neither you, your doctor, nor the person administering the medication will know which drug you are receiving. At your study visits, you may also have the following assessments or procedures: review of medical history, vital signs, blood, urine, pregnancy testing, a review
of any changes to your health.
