START: Sensipar Treatment Algorithm to Reach K/DOQI Targets in Chronic Kidney Disease Subjects With Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
The purpose of this research is to study the effects and safety of Sensipar approved by the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in patients with kidney failure who are being treated
with dialysis and have uncontrolled secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT).
ACHIEVE: Optimizing the Treatment of Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
The purpose of this study is to compare the proportion of chronic kidney disease (CKD)
subjects on dialysis receiving Sensipar® and low dose vitamin D or escalating doses of
vitamin D alone who are able to achieve the National Kidney Foundation-Kidney Disease
Outcomes Quality Initiative (NKF-K/DOQI) secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) treatment
targets for both biointact parathyroid hormone (biPTH) and calcium-phosphorus (Ca x P)
A Multi-Center, Observational Registry of Subjects With Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (HPT) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
Objectives include description of current practices; assessment over time of K/DOQI goals,
clinical outcomes, health resource utilization(HRU) and patient reported outcomes (PRO) and
the impact of Sensipar® on these parameters
Effect of Cinacalcet on Parathyroid Hormone Secretion in Children and Adolescents With Hypophosphatemic Rickets
Children's Mercy Hospital Kansas City
This study will measure the effect of cinacalcet (Sensipar) on parathyroid hormone (PTH)
secretion in children and adolescents with hypophosphatemic rickets (XLH). The investigators
are seeking evidence that patients with XLH may benefit from treatment with cinacalcet by
achieving better control of PTH secretion.
