Distribution: Lanthanum is highly bound to plasma proteins and, therefore, minimally affected by dialysis.
According to Linebarger, cerium is the most prominently used, followed by lanthanum; however, the materials are sold in such a way that the individual breakout of the elements often is unclear.
Global Lanthanum Nitrate market competition by top manufacturers, with production, price, revenue (value) and market share for each manufacturer; the top players including
Feces samples were collected from 20 controls, 21 dialysis patients before using lanthanum carbonate, and 14 dialysis patients provided second feces samples after 12 weeks of lanthanum carbonate treatment.
Through substitution of neodymium with lanthanum and cerium, which are abundant and low-cost rare earths, high heat resistance can be maintained and loss of coercivity minimized.
2.a, which is probably due to lower stability for titanium, zirconium, and silicon carboxylates, different from doped samples visualized in Figs 2.b and 2.c., which present around 50 % more weight losses in that event (11-12 %) due the stable metallic hydrates for bismuth, lanthanum and vanadium cations.
In addition, EDX spectra were also studied in Figure 1(d), which confirmed that lanthanum could be successfully attached on the surface of nanocomposites.
Lanthanum carbonate, the generic equivalent of Shire Development LLC's Fosrenol, is indicated to reduce serum phosphate in patients with endstage renal disease (ESRD).
All samples sealed with 12 g/l of lanthanum nitrate have a corrosion current density of the order of [10.sup.-7], but the ones sealed at higher temperature and for longer treatment times have also a higher corrosion potential.
All chemical reagents used in the experiments were of analytical grade purchased from Merck (Germany), mainly including lanthanum nitrate [(La(N[O.sub.3]).sub.3] x 6[H.sub.2]O), sodium hydrate (NaOH), anhydrous sodium phosphate ([Na.sub.3]P[O.sub.4]), sodium fluoride (NaF), and nitric acid (HN[O.sub.3]).
Sevelamer hydrochloride is a non-absorbable polymer that contains neither aluminum, lanthanum, or calcium.
Variations in the properties of ZnO powders were studied as a function of the lanthanum dopant concentrations.
