This phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is designed to demonstrate the efficacy and to assess the safety of cinacalcet for the reduction of hypercalcemia in subjects with primary HPT for whom parathyroidectomy is indicated on the basis of an elevated corrected total serum calcium, but who are unable to undergo parathyroidectomy. The reasons a subject would be unable to undergo parathyroidectomy include failed parathyroidectomy, medical contraindication to surgery, or because together with their primary physician they decided it was inappropriate. The study will consist of a 30-day screening phase, a 12-week placebo-controlled dose-titration phase, and a 16 week placebo-controlled efficacy assessment phase (EAP). Subjects who complete 28 weeks on study will continue into an open-label safety extension phase for 24 weeks of investigational cinacalcet treatment.

This study will evaluate whether blocking the mineralocorticoid receptor, alone, or in combination with the calcimimetic cinacalcet, can lower parathyroid hormone and calcium levels in pri...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of cinacalcet (cinacalcet HCl or Sensipar®/Mimpara®) on cardiovascular events and death in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with...
This is a multicentre, descriptive observational study of adult patients with primary HPT receiving cinacalcet in clinical practice in a number of countries in Europe (including Russia). ...
The 1st phase of the study will assess the acute biochemical response of PTH, calcium and phosphorus to orally administered doses of cinacalcet once (60mg) or twice (30mg x 2) per day. ...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the efficacy of cinacalcet when co-administered with the first meal after dialysis is comparable (non-inferior) to the efficacy of cinacalc...
The calcimimetic cinacalcet is used to treat secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients receiving dialysis, and asymptomatic hypocalcemia is often observed following its initiation. Here we investigate...
Oxidative stress is one of the leading factors contributing to increased mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT). Cinacalcet is now commonly us...
To observe the clinical outcome and the effect of bone metabolism of cinacalcet combined with calcitriol in maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients with severe secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT).
The multi-phase or four-dimensional computed tomography (4D CT) has emerged as a promising technique for preoperative localization of parathyroid lesions in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (...
Hyperparathyroidism is associated with hypercalcemia and the excess of parathyroid hormone secretion. However, the alterations in molecular pattern of functional genes during parathyroid tumorigenesis...
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.
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE due to parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. It is characterized by the combination of HYPERCALCEMIA, phosphaturia, elevated renal 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis, and increased BONE RESORPTION.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
A naphthalene derivative and CALCIMIMETIC AGENT that increases the sensitivity of PARATHYROID GLAND calcium-sensing receptors to serum calcium. This action reduces parathyroid hormone secretion and decreases serum calcium in the treatment of PARATHYROID DISEASES.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
