Title: Sevelamer
CAS Registry Number: 52757-95-6
CAS Name: 2-Propen-1-amine polymer with (chloromethyl)oxirane
Additional Names: allylamine polymer with 1-chloro-2,3-epoxypropane; allylamine-epichlorohydrin copolymer; poly(allylamin-co-N,Nยข-diallyl-1,3-diamino-2-hydroxypropane)
Literature References: Polymeric non-absorbed phosphate binder consisting of polyallylamine crosslinked with epichlorohydrin to form a hydrogel where 40% of the amines are protonated. Follows the general formula of (C3H7N.C3H5ClO)n. Binds dietary phosphate leading to increased fecal excretion, decreased absorption and decreased serum phosphorous levels. Prepd not claimed: S. R. Holmes-Farley et al., WO 9505184; eidem, US 5496545 (1995, 1996 both to GelTex). Mechanism of action: S. R. Holmes-Farley et al., J. Macromol. Sci. Pure Appl. Chem. A36, 1085 (1999).
