    Phosphate binders are a primary means of controlling serum phosphorus, which is associated with a variety of CKD-related disorders, including systemic mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD).  The range of available phosphate binders has expanded significantly in recent years with the introduction of novel therapies that have added benefits in terms of efficacy and safety.   Indeed, calcium-based phosphate binders and non–calcium-containing phosphate binders have important differential effects on vascular and bone health, as well as on the potential mortality of patients with CKD.  It is important that clinicians who manage patients with CKD be aware of the appropriate use of these agents in order to optimize treatment outcomes.
