In medicine, lanthanum carbonate is used in medication known as a phosphate binder. As a medication it is sold under the trade name Fosrenol® by the pharmceutical company Shire Pharmaceuticals. It is prescribed for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia, primarily in patients with chronic renal failure. It is taken with meals and binds to dietary phosphate, preventing phosphate from being absorbed by the intestine.
