Background

Clinical and observational studies have shown the effectiveness of SO in controlling sP in PD patients (pts). A real-world retrospective analysis in a PD cohort prescribed SO for 6 months demonstrated an association between SO prescription and lower sP. The current analysis examines the changes in sP and PB pill burden over a one-year period in PD patients converting to SO.

Methods

We included adult Fresenius Kidney Care (FKC) PD pts (n=260) first prescribed SO monotherapy during 5/2018- 5/2019 who had sP measured 91 days before SO prescription (baseline; BL). Comparisons were made between BL and the four consecutive 91-day intervals of SO treatment (Q1-Q4). Means of PB pill burden and lab measures were calculated using mixed effects linear regression.

Results

At BL, mean age was 54 years old with PD vintage 18 months, 37% pts had no PB prescriptions recorded and the remaining pts were prescribed sevelamer (36%), calcium acetate (33%), lanthanum (1%), ferric citrate (13%), switched between PB (10%), or >1 PB recorded (6%). After switching to SO, % of pts achieving sP<= 5.5 mg/dL increased from 32.7% at BL to 46.9%- 53.8% during SO FU, % of pts achieving sP<= 4.5 mg/dL increased by 153% from BL to Q4, along with fewer PB pills per day (7.6 at BL vs 4.4-5.2 at FU).

Conclusion

During a one-year observation period, PD pts prescribed SO as part of routine care during 2018-2019 had significant reductions in sP and PB pills/day and increases in % of pts with sP≤ 5.5 mg/mL or sP≤ 4.5 mg/mL, suggesting improved sP management with concurrent reduction in pill burden.
