Latest research on Sensipar

Cinacalcet (INN) is a drug that acts as a calcimimetic (i.e. it mimics the action of calcium on tissues) by allosteric activation of the calcium-sensing receptor that is expressed in various human organ tissues. It is sold by Amgen under the trade name Sensipar® in North America and Australia and as Mimpara® in Europe. Cinacalcet is used to treat hyperparathyroidism (elevated parathyroid hormone levels), a consequence of parathyroid tumors and chronic renal failure.

Even after this second exploration, postoperatively the patient continued to experience hypercalcemia and was maintained on Sensipar and 1,25-OH Vitamin D. [source, 2013]
The present analysis evaluates the serum P-lowering potential of cinacalcet, while controlling for PB and Vitamin D sterol changes, using data from the pan-European ECHO study (Evaluation of the Clinical Use of Mimpara in Haemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis Patients, an Observational Study).
