Chronic Kidney Disease

According to the National Kidney Foundation, there are an estimated 26 million adults suffering from CKD in the US. Of these CKD patients, approximately 400,000 patients are at stage 4 and approximately 660,000 are at Stage 5 (ESRD). The incidence of ESRD is increasing at approximately 6% per year. Approximately 70% of ESRD patients have hyperphosphatemia.

In 2010, sales of phosphate binding agents are expected to increase to over $1B.
