Study Description
Brief Summary:
This is a double-blind, randomized, cross-over study conducted at centers within the United States. The study consists of five periods: an up to two-week Screening Period, a 5-week Run-In Period, two eight-week study treatment periods and a two-week Washout Period. Patients are assigned randomly (1:1) to one of two treatment sequences: sevelamer carbonate for eight weeks followed by sevelamer hydrochloride for eight weeks or sevelamer hydrochloride for eight weeks followed by sevelamer carbonate for eight weeks

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Kidney Disease Drug: sevelamer carbonate, sevelamer hydrochloride Drug: sevelamer hydrochloride, sevelamer carbonate Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The study was conducted at 15 centers (2 of which did not enroll any patients). A total of 79 hemodialysis patients were assigned randomly to one of two treatment sequences.

Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
1
sevelamer carbonate w(1-8) sevelamer hydrochloride w(9-16)
Drug: sevelamer carbonate, sevelamer hydrochloride
Starting dose individualized for each patient and fixed daily dose throughout both treatment periods
2
sevelamer hydrochloride w(1-8) sevelamer carbonate w(9-16)
Drug: sevelamer hydrochloride, sevelamer carbonate
Starting dose individualized for each patient and fixed daily dose throughout both treatment periods


Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety-evaluated on the basis of adverse events (reported and/or observed) [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  2. changes in laboratory parameters, vital signs [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  3. note: clinically significant changes in physical examination were recorded and evaluated as adverse events [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  4. Efficacy-treatment regimens are compared on the basis of serum phosphorus at the end of each treatment period using the time-weighted mean of the phosphorus value from the last three visits in each treatment period [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  5. Treatment regimens were also compared with respect to total, LDL, and HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, using the mean of values for each parameter from the two post-baseline assessments in each treatment period. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
