Study to Compare Sevelamer Carbonate Powder to Sevelamer Hydrochloride Tablets in Patients With CKD on Hemodialysis
Approximately 207 patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on hemodialysis will be entered into this study at approximately 26 centers in the United States. This study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of sevelamer carbonate powder dosed once-a-day (QD) with the largest meal compared to sevelamer hydrochloride tablets dosed three-times-per-day (TID) with meals. The total length of participation is approximately 24 weeks.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Sevelamer carbonate (Renvela®), Sevelamer hydrochloride (Renagel®)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Kidney Papillary Necrosis
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
Abnormal enlargement or swelling of a KIDNEY due to dilation of the KIDNEY CALICES and the KIDNEY PELVIS. It is often associated with obstruction of the URETER or chronic kidney diseases that prevents normal drainage of urine into the URINARY BLADDER.

Kidney Diseases, Cystic
A heterogeneous group of hereditary and acquired disorders in which the KIDNEY contains one or more CYSTS unilaterally or bilaterally (KIDNEY, CYSTIC).
A field of chemistry which pertains to chemical compounds or ions that do not contain the element carbon (with the exception of carbon dioxide and compounds containing a carbonate radical, e.g., calcium carbonate).
The purpose of this study is to determine if sevelamer carbonate powder is an effective treatment for the control of serum phosphorous levels in patients on dialysis when compared to sevel...
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...
The purpose of this clinical study is to compare the effects of Genz-644470 with the effects of placebo and sevelamer carbonate (Renvela®) on the reduction of serum phosphorus in hyperpho...
The purpose of this study is to determine if subjects on 2g AMG 223 will achieve 60% or greater reduction in urinary phosphorus from baseline compared to subjects on 2g Renagel®. Renagel...
Approximately 45 hyperphosphatemic CKD patients not on dialysis will be entered into this study at approximately 20 sites within Europe and 5-10 in Australia. The purpose of this study is...
A sensitive and rapid ion chromatography (IC) method was developed for the low level determination of allylamine (AAM) in sevelamer (SVM) drug substances, i.e., sevelamer hydrochloride (SVH) and sevel...
Background: Renal failure is associated with activation of inflammatory response, but the mechanisms behind this observation and potential anti-inflammatory strategies are yet to be defined. Endotoxin...
BACKGROUND: Sevelamer, a non-calcium containing phosphate binder often used in end-stage renal disease, is frequently associated with gastrointestinal side effects. However, whether Sevelamer is also...
Objective: To investigate the effects of phosphonoformic acid (PFA) and sevelamer hydrochloride (Renagel) on renal type IIa sodium-dependent phosphate cotransporter (NaPi-2) mRNA expression in hyperph...
We compared the effects of calcitriol and doxercalciferol, in combination with either calcium carbonate or sevelamer, on bone, mineral, and fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) metabolism in patients...
