Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
Inclusion:

Subjects will be considered eligible for entry in the study if they meet all of the
following criteria.

1. Male or female, aged =18 years.

2. Able to comply with the study procedures and medication.

3. Written informed consent given.

4. On a stable hemodialysis regimen (at least 3x per week) for =12 weeks prior to
screening.

5. (a) Subject receiving phosphate binder medication(s) at screening, must have been on a
stable regimen (dose and medication) for at least 1 month prior to screening and will
remain on this regimen until entry into the washout period OR(b) Subjects (i) is not
currently receiving any phosphate binding medication at screening (or medication
likely to act as a phosphate binder) and (ii) must not have done so for at least one
month and (iii) has sustained hyperphosphatemia.

6. Willing to abstain from taking any phosphate binder or oral magnesium-, oral aluminum-
or oral iron-containing products and preparations other than the study medication.

least three meals per day.

Specifically, for randomization and inclusion into the treatment period, one of the
following criteria must be fulfilled:

8. (a) Is not receiving phosphate binding medication at screen and has a screen serum
phosphate value above 3.0 mmol/L (9.3 mg/dL)OR(b) Has a serum phosphate value of =1.94

Key exclusion criteria
Exclusion:

Subjects will not be considered eligible for entry in the study if they meet one or more of

clinically significant for this subject population.

6. A screen serum magnesium concentration of >3.0 mg/dL (>1.25 mmol/L).

7. A known history of hemochromatosis.

8. Subjects receiving either tetracycline or lithium treatment.

9. Subjects receiving nicotinamide (niacinamide) or niacin (nicotinic acid) alone (i.e.
not as a constituent of a multivitamin supplementation).

10. A serum ferritin level of =1500 ng/mL (=3370 pmol/L).

11. Non-elective hospitalization in the 4 weeks prior to screening.

12. Female subjects who are of childbearing potential and who are neither surgically
sterilized nor using reliable contraceptive methods (hormonal, barrier methods or
intrauterine device) or who are lactating or pregnant.

13. Current hypophosphatemia at screening (last 2 consecutive phosphate values of <2.2
mg/dL [<0.7 mmol/L]).

14. Known history of colorectal malignancy, familial polyposis coli and/or strong family
history (in 2 or more first degree relatives) of these terms

15. A QTcF interval of >560 ms at screen.

16. Known persistent (>1 month) non compliance (<70%) with prescribed medication regimens
at screen.

17. Current clinically significant intestinal motility disorder.

18. Intestinal motility disorder with current or previous use of lanthanum carbonate.

19. Known intolerance to lanthanum carbonate or any excipients of fermagate or Fosrenol
medication.

20. Subjects with inflammatory bowel disease that, in the investigator's opinion, is
poorly controlled.

21. Subjects placed under guardianship or tutelage.

22. Subjects previously withdrawn from the study.

The above inclusion and exclusion criteria would be the same for all countries except the
exclusion criteria of the QTc interval would be different for Germany (QTc interval of
>470ms at screen).

Summary
Brief summary
Magnesium iron hydroxycarbonate is a phosphate binder that absorbs phosphate from food,
reducing the amount that the body can absorb.

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of magnesium iron hydroxycarbonate in
subjects requiring hemodialysis, compared with a marketed phosphate binder, lanthanum
carbonate and placebo.
