The ASCEND-ND clinical research study is looking for
adults who have anemia caused by Chronic Kidney Disease. The study
doctors are testing an investigational medication to
see if it may safely boost production of EPO, thereby
increasing red blood cell production. ("Investigational"
means this medication isn't yet approved for use by
the public.) This medication is a tablet that's taken daily by mouth. Those who volunteer and qualify for this research study will receive all study-related medication and care at no cost.
