  • Change in 24-hour urinary calcium excretion from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 4, Week 8, end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) [ Time Frame: Throughout trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change in urinary calcium:creatinine ratio from Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 4, Week 8, end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • Total Sign Score (sum of redness, thickness and scaliness scores) [ Time Frame: Weeks 2, 4, 8 and end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient's global assessment of disease severity [ Time Frame: Weeks 2, 4, 8 and end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Throughout trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change in plasma PTH from Baseline (SV2) [ Time Frame: Week 4 and Week 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
