What is Phoslyra?
Phoslyra is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Lyne Laboratories Brockton, for Fresenius Medical Care. Phoslyra (calcium acetate oral solution) is a phosphate binder indicated as an adjunct to the reduction in dietary intake of phosphate and dialysis to reduce serum phosphorus in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Patients with ESRD retain phosphorus and can develop hyperphosphatemia. High serum phosphorus can precipitate serum calcium resulting in ectopic calcification. Hyperphosphatemia also plays a role in the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients with ESRD.

Phoslyra is available in oral solution form, in the following doses: 667 mg calcium acetate per 5mL.
