Date:2/5/2013

EXTON, Penn., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for specialized biopharmaceutical issues, finds the following key results, according to a recent BioTrends' report, ChartTrends: Bone and Mineral Metabolism in Chronic Kidney Disease - Non-Dialysis (CKD-ND) and Dialysis, which contains data from 962 EU5 dialysis patient charts and 928 EU5 CKD-ND patient charts:

  • On average, nephrologists in the EU5 countries indicate that they are managing slightly over 100 dialysis patients and over 200 Stage 3 and 4 CKD-ND patients
  • In all countries, the general practitioner is the most common referral source to the nephrologist, accounting for 40-60 percent of all nephrology patient referrals
  • Phosphate binder treatment prevalence in both the dialysis and CKD-ND has remained consistent over time
  • Approximately 73 percent of nephrologists report that they initiate binders when dialysis patients are above the phosphorus level at which the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines recommend, clearly indicating that more education is needed
  • As is the case in the United States market, calcium and non-calcium binders generally split the phosphate binder market. However, Fosrenol (Shire) use is higher in the EU5 compared to the U.S. and as well, use of sevelamer's (Sanofi Renal) powder formulation is higher in the EU5 compared to the U.S.
  • Prevalence of Nutritional Vitamin D treatment in dialysis patients appears to be increasing across both dialysis modalities, with currently over 30 percent of dialysis patients treated in 2012
  • Physicians' choice of Active Vitamin D varies by EU5 country, w
