1 Recommendations

1.1 Etelcalcetide is recommended as an option for treating secondary hyperparathyroidism in adults with chronic kidney disease on haemodialysis, only if:

  • treatment with a calcimimetic is indicated but cinacalcet is not suitable and

  • the company provides etelcalcetide with the discount agreed in the patient access scheme.

1.2 This guidance is not intended to affect the position of patients whose treatment with etelcalcetide was started within the NHS before this guidance was published. Treatment of those patients may continue without change to whatever funding arrangements were in place for them before this guidance was published until they and their NHS clinician consider it appropriate to stop.
