Chemical Structure

12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Patients with ESRD retain phosphorus and can develop hyperphosphatemia. High serum phosphorus can precipitate serum Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children resulting in ectopic calcification. Hyperphosphatemia also plays a role in the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients with ESRD.

12.1 Mechanism of Action

Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate, when taken with meals, combines with dietary phosphate to form an insoluble Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) phosphate complex, which is excreted in the feces, resulting in decreased serum phosphorus concentration.

12.2 Pharmacodynamics

Orally administered Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate from pharmaceutical dosage forms is systemically absorbed up to approximately 40% under fasting conditions and up to approximately 30% under nonfasting conditions.

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

No carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, or fertility studies have been conducted with Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate.

14 CLINICAL STUDIES

Effectiveness of Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate in decreasing serum phosphorus has been demonstrated in two studies of the Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate solid oral dosage form.

Ninety-one patients with end-stage renal disease who were undergoing hemodialysis and were hyperphosphatemic (serum phosphorus >5.5 mg/dL) following a 1 week phosphate binder washout period contributed efficacy data to an open-label, non-randomized study.

The patients received Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate 667 mg tablets at each meal for a period of 12 weeks. The initial starting dose was 2 tablets per meal for 3 meals a day, and the dose was adjusted as necessary to control serum phosphorus levels. The average final dose after 12 weeks of treatment was 3.4 tablets per meal. Although there was a decrease in serum phosphorus, in the absence of a control group the true magnitude of effect is uncertain.

The data presented in Table 2 demonstrate the efficacy of Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) acetate in the treatment of hyperphosphatemia in end-stage renal disease patients. The effects on serum Doctor's Choice Chewable Vita C-Cal for Children (Calcium) levels are also presented.
