Lanthanum carbonate oral powder: satisfaction, preference and adherence in French and Spanish patients with end-stage renal disease

Lanthanum carbonate oral powder: satisfaction, preference and adherence in French and Spanish patients with end-stage renal disease

The aim of this survey was to investigate satisfaction with, preference for, and adherence to lanthanum carbonate oral powder in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The authors concluded that patients with ESRD report increased satisfaction with and preference for lanthanum carbonate powder over other formulations, suggesting that lanthanum carbonate powder is more convenient and easier to use than other formulations.
