Competitor Landscape: CKD-MBD, briefings contain evaluations of ongoing development activities within the CKD-MBD disease markets, together with analysis of current & potential future product positioning.

Key Highlights from the report -

  • OPKO appears to be currently focusing resources on the commercialization and continued development of the SHPT therapy Rayaldee (calcifediol ER), which may result in further delays to Alpharen’s development
  • While the main challenge for Velphoro remains the market dominance of branded & generic sevelamer, the real-world evidence from trials like VERIFIE are expected to strengthen the value proposition for VERIFIE and encourage its use over older phosphate binders
  • Positive findings from a trial comparing the efficacy of Velphoro and sevelamer carbonate for lowering and maintaining serum phosphate levels in adult Chinese DD-CKD subjects may support a future approval in China, and generate new revenue streams for Vifor
