The purpose of this study is to look at how well Ferric Carboxymaltose, an intravenous iron therapy (iron that is infused directly into your body through a vein), compares with ferrous sulphate capsules taken by mouth in the treatment of iron deficiency anaemia during pregnancy.
This is an open-label, multicentre, randomised, 2-arm study to assess the efficacy and safety of FCM compared to oral iron in pregnant women with IDA.
During the screening period (Days -10 to 0 before randomisation), subjects will be selected based on eligibility criteria. Subjects who meet all of the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria will undergo baseline assessments at baseline (Day 0) prior to the first dose of study medication.
Subjects will be randomised to receive either intravenous (IV) iron (FCM, 1,000-1,500 mg) or oral iron (ferrous sulphate, 100 mg iron twice a day; total dose 200 mg/day).
The treatment period will begin with the infusion of FCM or the intake of oral iron on Day 0.
All subjects will return for assessment of efficacy and safety at Weeks 3, 6, 9, 12 and at delivery (or whichever comes first).

Inorganic or organic compounds that contain divalent iron.
A ferroin compound that forms a stable magenta-colored solution with the ferrous ion. The complex has an absorption peak at 562 nm and is used as a reagent and indicator for iron.
A compound formed by the combination of hemoglobin and oxygen. It is a complex in which the oxygen is bound directly to the iron without causing a change from the ferrous to the ferric state.
A mixed function oxidase enzyme which during hemoglobin catabolism catalyzes the degradation of heme to ferrous iron, carbon monoxide and biliverdin in the presence of molecular oxygen and reduced NADPH. The enzyme is induced by metals, particularly cobalt. EC 18.104.22.168.
A mitochondrial enzyme found in a wide variety of cells and tissues. It is the final enzyme in the 8-enzyme biosynthetic pathway of HEME. Ferrochelatase catalyzes ferrous insertion into protoporphyrin IX to form protoheme or heme. Deficiency in this enzyme results in ERYTHROPOIETIC PROTOPORPHYRIA.
