The secondary objective is to collect information on the safety of the drug when administered for more than six months, which means collecting information on the safety of the drug when administered for up to 12 months to the target patients who have already been treated with the drug for six months. And also if at the time of 12 months after administration of Lanthanum carbonate the dialysis is not conducted, extending its’ administration will be continued until conduction of dialysis, or until Sept. 30, 2015. The efficacy of fosrenol is evaluated by observing the serum P(phosphorus) level and serum PTH (parathyroid hormone) level change.
