Burosumab Disease Interactions

There are 3 disease interactions with burosumab:


Burosumab (applies to burosumab) hyperphosphatemia

Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Phosphate Imbalance

Do not initiate burosumab-twza treatment if serum phosphorus is within or above the normal range for age. Increases in serum phosphorus to above the upper limit of normal may be associated with an increased risk of nephrocalcinosis. It is recommended to obtain baseline fasting serum phosphorus levels and to monitor fasting serum phosphorus levels. Dose interruption and/or dose reduction may be required based on a patient's serum phosphorus levels.


Burosumab (applies to burosumab) renal impairment

Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Renal Dysfunction

Burosumab-twza is contraindicated in patients with severe renal impairment or end stage renal disease because these conditions are associated with abnormal mineral metabolism. The effect of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics of burosumab-twza is unknown.


Burosumab (applies to burosumab) RLS

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Neurologic Disorder

The use of burosumab-twza may cause new onset of restless leg syndrome (RLS) or worsen RLS severity. Care should be exercised when using this agent in patients with existing RLS diagnosis.
