Study design

A retrospective analysis of pharmacy data assessed the real-world effectiveness of Velphoro in 1,029 adult in-center hemodialysis patients who were switched to Velphoro during routine care between April 2014 through March 2015. The blinded study compared the proportion of patients with phosphorus levels <5.5 mg/dL and the mean prescribed PB pills/day at baseline (3 months prior to Velphoro) and during Velphoro follow-up (6 months after switch to Velphoro, n=424). This was a non-interventional analysis and did not impact prescriptions or prescribing patterns.

Regardless of prior therapy, a switch to Velphoro doubled the percentage of patients who achieved goal at 6 months.1
