Natpara® (rhPTH [1-84]) in hypoparathyroidismNatpara is a bioengineered replica of human parathyroid hormone that is being developed by NPS for adults with hypoparathyroidism, a rare endocrine disorder that is characterized by insufficient levels of parathyroid hormone, the body’s principal regulator of calcium and phosphorus. In the randomized, placebo-controlled REPLACE study, treatment with Natpara resulted in significant reductions in calcium and active vitamin D supplements. Overall rates of adverse events during the 24-week treatment period were similar (90% vs. 96% Natpara and placebo, respectively). The spectrum of adverse events reflected underlying disease pathophysiology with most common being paresthesia, muscle spasms, headache, and hypocalcemia.
