Further study details as provided by Shire:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of subjects achieving serum phosphorus levels of less than or equal to 1.78 mmol/L (5.5 mg/dL) following treatment with Fosrenol at Week 12 compared to treatment with their previous phosphate binder therapy [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The maintenance of mean serum phosphorus levels following treatment with 2250 mg/day of Fosrenol [ Time Frame: at Week 2 compared to baseline ]
  • Biochemical and haematological parameters [ Time Frame: measured throughout the study ]
  • Assess safety & tolerability [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]

Enrollment: 68
Study Start Date: May 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: Lanthanum carbonate
2250mg/day starting dose of lanthanum carbonate administered orally, in divided doses, with meals (500mg 750mg and 1000mg strengths)for 2 weeks; dose titration will occur based on serum phosphorus results not to exceed 3000mg/day.
Other Name: FOSRENOL


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female subjects greater than or equal to 18 years of age receiving a stable regimen of haemodialysis for chronic kidney disease (CKD) Stage 5 (defined as haemodialysis two or three times per week for at least two months prior to screening).
  • Females of child bearing potential (FOCP) must be non-pregnant, non-lactating, have a negative serum beta human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) test, and agree to comply with any applicable contraceptive requirements of the protocol.
  • Subjects on a stable phosphate binder dose (defined as no change in medication or dosage for at least the one month prior to screening) with a serum phosphorus level between greater than 1.78 and less than or equal to 2.43 mmol/L (5.5 and 7.5 mg/dL).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with a corrected serum calcium level less than 2.1 mmol/L (8.5 mg/dL).
  • Subjects with an intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) level greater than 500 pg/mL, or a history of previous parathyroidectomy within 12 months of screening.
  • Subjects with any significant bowel obstruction, active inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal (GI) motility disorders, abnormal or irregular bowel motion, or a history of major GI surgery within the last 6 months will be excluded.
  • Subjects receiving aluminium, magnesium, or combination therapy other than sevelamer hydrogen chloride (HCl) and calcium as a phosphate binder at the time of screening will be excluded.
