The phosphorus content in saliva is increased in chronic kidney disease. We hypothesize that a chewing gum that binds salivary phosphorus would be a novel, effective agent to reduce serum levels of phosphorus in patients with chronic kidney disease. We are testing this hypothesis using a chewing gum called FOSTRAP which has been shown to be effective in a small, non-randomized study in patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo, controlled trial with an open label extension for those subjects with end stage renal disease (ESRD).
Patients with ESRD will be randomized to receive either FOSTRAP™ 20 mg BID, FOSTRAP™ 40 mg BID or matching placebo 2x/day. All subjects will participate in a 4 week chewing period followed by a 4 week follow up period. All subjects will then enter an open label 2 week extension phase in which they will receive FOSTRAP™ 20 mg TID.
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) not on dialysis will receive either FOSTRAP™ 20 mg 3x/day or placebo TID for 4 weeks followed by a 4 week follow up period.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
