Purpose: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is common condition, affecting people of all ages and is mainly treated with parathyroidectomy. Cinacalcet has been widely used in secondary or tertiary hyperparathyroidism, but the use of cinacalcet in PHPT is less clear.
Methods: Searches were conducted in Medline and Embase for cinacalcet use in PHPT from induction to 10th April 2020. Articles and conferences abstracts describing the use of cinacalcet for PHPT in prospective or retrospective cohorts and randomized controlled trials restricted to English Language only. We initially identified 1301 abstracts. Each article went extraction by two blinded authors on a structured proforma. Continuous outcomes were pooled with weight mean difference (WMD). Quality of included articles was assessed with Newcastle Ottwa Scale and Cochrane risk of Bias 2.0.
Results: 28 articles were included. Normalization rate of serum calcium levels was reported at 90% (CI: 0.82 to 0.96). Serum levels of calcium and PTH levels were significantly reduced (calcium, WMD: 1.647 (CI: -1.922 to -1.371; PTH, WMD: -31.218, CI: -41.671 to -20.765) and phosphate levels significantly increased (WMD: 0.498, CI: 0.400 to 0.596) after cinacalcet therapy The higher the baseline calcium levels, the greater calcium reduction with cinacalcet treatment. Age and gender did not modify the effect of cinacalcet on serum calcium levels.
Conclusion: The results from the meta-analysis support the use of cinacalcet as an alternative or bridging therapy to treat hypercalcemia in people with PHPT.
