Primary Outcome Measures:
  • A reduction in oral calcium or an oral calcium dose of ≤ 500 mg [ Time Frame: 52 weeks of treatment, 4 weeks of follow-up ]
  • A reduction in oral calcitriol to ≤ 0.25 μg [ Time Frame: 52 weeks of treatment, 4 weeks of follow-up ]
  • An albumin-corrected total serum calcium concentration that is normalized or maintained compared to the baseline value (≥7.5 mg/dL) and ULN [ Time Frame: 52 weeks of treatment, 4 weeks of follow-up ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: NPSP558
titration of 25, 50, 75 or 100 μg
Drug: NPSP558
All patients will inject NPSP558 individual titration of 25, 50, 75 or 100 μg SC QD into alternating thighs in the morning via a multidose injection pen device.
Other Name: RACE

Detailed Description:
Patients with a history of Hypoparathyroidism will be enrolled to receive study drug for 52 weeks, which will be injected daily in either thigh. During that time they will be monitored for safety (specifically calcium levels in blood or urine). In addition, the patients' intake of Vitamin D and Calcium will be measured.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Diagnosis of Hypoparathyroidism ≥ 18 months
  2. Adult males and females ages 18 to 85 years of age
  3. Able to perform daily SC self-injections of study medication
  4. Previously completed a NPSP558 study
  5. Women of childbearing potential need to use two methods of contraception.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Any condition that, in the investigator's opinion after consultation with the sponsor, would preclude the safe use of PTH 1-84 and/or completing this trial
  2. Pregnant or lactating woman.
