The protein fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) (5) and its coreceptor Klotho have attracted great attention in recent years and are currently recognized as playing a key role in the regulation of phosphatemia.
These increases may represent a compensatory response to maintain normal phosphatemia or reflect an end organ resistance to the phosphaturic stimulus due to a renal Klotho deficiency.
The studies will examine, among other things: the effectiveness of the OLpur(TM) MD190 in removing a range of toxins from the patients' blood; changes in patients' prescription drug usage for anemia, phosphatemia, and other conditions; potential cardiovascular benefits of the therapy; and other factors contributing to overall therapy cost and patient well-being, such as hospitalizations and nursing care.
