This trial is designed to determine if the use of a computer algorithm designed to optimize mineral outcomes in dialysis patients increases the number of patients achieving the desired target endpoints for calcium, phosphorus and parathyroid hormone.
It is our hypothesis that a computerized dosing protocol incorporating both cinacalcet and vitamin D analogues can achieve significantly better control of mineral and bone parameters than currently observed in most dialysis facilities. This trial will test this hypothesis.
Objectives Primary Objectives
1. Compare the percent of patients achieving an intact PTH target of ≤ 300 pg/ml before and after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
2. Compare the percent of patients achieving a phosphorus of ≤ 5.5 mg/dL before and after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
1. Compare the percent of patients achieving an intact PTH target of ≤ 450 pg/ml before and after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
2. Compare the percent of patients achieving a phosphorus of ≤ 4.5 mg/dL before and after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
3. Compare the percent of patients achieving a calcium ≤ 10.1 mg/dL before and after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
4. Compare the percent of patients on cinacalcet and vitamin D analogues at baseline and at 6 and 12 months after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
5. Compare the mean and SD at baseline and 6 and 12 months for PTH, calcium and phosphorus.
6. Compare the total monthly and average weekly (for patients on the medication) active vitamin D analogue dose at baseline and at 6 and 12 months (converted to mcg q month of paricalcitol) after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD. 1 mcg paricalcitol = 0.5 mcg doxercalciferol
7. Compare the number of patients on calcium and non-calcium binders at baseline and at 6 and 12 months after the application of a computerized dosing protocol for management of CKD-MBD.
8. Determine the percent of patients who are non-compliant with oral cinacalcet and the percent that are unable to tolerate the dose required by the algorithm to achieve target outcomes

Cinacalcet hydrochloride (cinacalcet), an oral calcimimetic agent has been widely used for the management of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in chronic kidney disease (CKD). In sharp contrast to ...
There is ample evidence associating vitamin D deficiency in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) patients with more severe disease manifestations and increased risk of postoperative hypocalcemia. Yet, th...
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH) triggering responses that increase blood CALCIUM. It is characterized by HYPERCALCEMIA and BONE RESORPTION, eventually leading to bone diseases. PRIMARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is caused by parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is increased PTH secretion in response to HYPOCALCEMIA, usually caused by chronic KIDNEY DISEASES.
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.
9,10-Secoergosta-5,7,10(19),22-tetraene-3,25-diol. Biologically active metabolite of vitamin D2 which is more active in curing rickets than its parent. The compound is believed to attach to the same receptor as vitamin D2 and 25-hydroxyvitamin D3.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
A synthetic naphthoquinone without the isoprenoid side chain and biological activity, but can be converted to active vitamin K2, menaquinone, after alkylation in vivo.
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
