Expert Reviews

Dr. Marcus Tägtmeyer, , (International Medical and Technological University, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania)

Lanthanum Carbonate is the carbonate salt of lanthanum, a silvery white metallic element of the lanthanides family, with phosphate binding property. Lanthanum carbonatedissociates in gastric acid to release lanthalum ions, which then binds dietary phosphate. This agent inhibits the absorption of phosphate by forming highly insoluble lanthanum phosphate complexes that reduce concentrations of serum phosphate and Calcium phosphate.

Dr. Ms Jane Li, ,  (National Penghu University of Science and Technology, Magong, Penghu,  Republic of China)

Lanthanum Carbonate Powder is a phosphate binder that reduces absorption of phosphate by forming insoluble lanthanum phosphate complexes that pass through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract unabsorbed. Both serum phosphate and calcium phosphate product are reduced as a consequence of the reduced dietary phosphate absorption.

Dr. Willem-Jan de Kleijn Ph.D, , (Luleå University of Technology, Luleå, Sweden)

Lanthanum Carbonate powder  is used as a phosphate binder in medicine.  Due to its large size (1000mg tablet is 2.2 cm in diameter) and this has led to severe choking. It is prescribed for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia, primarily in patients with chronic kidney disease. It is taken with meals and binds to dietary phosphate, preventing phosphate from being absorbed by the intestine.

Dr. JKF Gojukai PhD, , (Kaiserslautern University of Technology, Kaiserslautern, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany)

Lanthanum Carbonate Powder: The high blood phosphate levels in people who are on dialysis due to severe kidney disease is lower by using Lanthanum.Dialysis removes some phosphate from your blood, but it is difficult to remove enough to keep phoshphate levels balanced. Decreasing blood phoshphate level can help to keep bones strong, prevent unsafe buildup of minerals in your body and may decrease the risk of heart disease and strockes that can result from high phosphate levels.

Dr. Huang Fu Ph.D, , (Maebashi Institute of Technology, Maebashi, Gunma, Japan)

Lanthanum is a natural mineral that works by binding to phosphate in the foods you eat. The phosphate then passes out of your body in your stool
