Background. Iron deficiency is a common cause of anaemia and hyporesponsiveness to erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) in non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (ND-CKD) patients.

Ferric carboxymaltose, a non-dextran parenteral iron preparation, can be rapidly administered in high doses
