Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The proportion of patients who achieve two consecutive > or = 30% decreases from his/her baseline serum iPTH level [ Time Frame: 12 weeks, with weekly iPTH measurements ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Enrollment: 62
Study Start Date: September 2013
Study Completion Date: June 2014
Primary Completion Date: May 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: DP001
DP001 softgel capsules, 440 ng taken orally three times weekly after dialysis for 12 weeks
Drug: DP001 softgel capsules
Other Names:
  • 2-methylene-19-nor-20S-1α,25-(OH)2D3
  • PF-00217763
  • 2MD
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo softgel capsules, taken orally three times weekly after dialysis for 12 weeks

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the vitamin D analog 2-methylene-19-nor-20S-1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (DP001) in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The effect of 12 weeks of oral administration of DP001 on serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels will be evaluated in ESRD patients who have secondary hyperparathyroidism.
