Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedHeart Failure with Renal Anemia
Date of first enrollment18/03/2022

Countries of recruitmentJapan
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)randomized controlled [Pharmaceuticals] Derblock (generic name: daprodustat) Dosage and administration method when untreated with erythropoiesis stimulating factor preparation The usual starting dose for adults is 2 mg or 4 mg of daprodustat, which is orally administered once daily. After that, the dose may be adjusted according to the patient's condition, but the maximum dose should be up to 24 mg once a day.


Primary OutcomeHemoglobin level at 16 weeks after randomization
Secondary OutcomeThe following items at 16 weeks after randomization 1) Presence or absence of red blood cell transfusion by 16 weeks after randomization 2) Presence or absence of score from 0 to 100 (KCCQ-TSS) calculated by the questionnaire on heart failure symptoms increased by 5 points or more compared to the baseline. 3) Blood tests :NT-proBNP, high-sensitivity troponin T, serum iron,transferrin,total iron binding capacity,transferrin saturation,ferritin,hepcidin,high-sensitivity C-reactive protein,total cholesterol,triglyceride,HDL cholesterol,LDL cholesterol,TNF-alpha,IL-1beta,IL-6, VEGF (plasma),angiopoietin 4) Echocardiography:left and right ventricular function analysis using M-mode,color Doppler,tissue Doppler,and strain analysis at the following cross sections Short-axis images (apex,papillary muscle level,mitral valve level), four-lumen,two-lumen,three-lumen images,right ventricle-focused four-lumen view of the apex (RV focused four chamber view) 5) Cardiac MRI:left and right heart function including strain analysis on cine MRI,native T1 abnormality and extracellular volume fraction on T1 mapping.
