In this activity, an expert discusses the management of anemia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and closely reviews the clinical potential of hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase (HIF-PH) inhibitors in treating CKD-associated anemia. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Describe the clinical consequences of anemia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), Recognize the rationale for targeting hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) stabilization with HIF prolyl-hydroxylase (PH) inhibitors as a treatment strategy for anemia because of CKD, Compare current and emerging treatments for CKD-associated anemia in terms of their mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety, Identify patients with anemia because of CKD who would likely derive benefit from treatment with a HIF-PH inhibitor
