About BindRen

BindRen® (generic name: colestilan) is an orally available non-absorbed anion exchange resin for the treatment of hyperphosphataemia in adult patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Stage 5 receiving haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.

In the clinical studies in Chronic Kidney Disease patients on dialysis, it improved high blood phosphorus concentration by absorbing phosphate in the gastrointestinal tract and excrete it into the faeces. Also observed are LDL cholesterol and HbA1c level reduction thanks to bile acid absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, as well as serum uric acid level reduction. Reported common adverse reactions include nausea, vomiting, and indigestion.
