With more than one-third of dialysis patients reportedly above the target range for PTH, there is a rather high need for new therapies to treat SHPT. 48% of the Nephrologists surveyed indicated that they have increased their use of Amgen's Mimpara in the past three months. In addition, Mimpara share is projected to increase from 19 % to 22% in the next three months. Abbott's active vitamin D agent, Zemplar, also enjoyed positive gains and 24% of EU Nephrologists agree that Zemplar offers improved morbidity and mortality benefits compared to calcitriol.
