Association Between hsa-miR-30e Polymorphisms and Sporadic Primary Hyperparathyroidism Risk.

Almost 15% of patients with sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism (sPHPT) present with multiple gland disease (MGD). The aim of this study was to investigate the potential role of two polymorphisms of ...

Mild sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism: high rate of multiglandular disease is associated with lower surgical cure rate.

Mild primary hyperparathyroidism (serum calcium ≤ 2.85 mmol/L) is the most representative form of pHPT nowadays. The aim of this study was to evaluate its subtypes and the multiglandular disease ...

Bilateral Neck Exploration for Sporadic Primary Hyperparathyroidism: Utilization Patterns in 5,597 Patients Undergoing Parathyroidectomy in the Collaborative Endocrine Surgery Quality Improvement Program.

For many surgeons, focused parathyroidectomy has become the preferred approach for the management of sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT). This study describes utilization patterns of bilateral ...

Single Centre Experience in Patients with Primary Hyperparathyroidism: Sporadic, Lithium-associated and in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia.

It is assumed that primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) and lithium-associated pHPT (LIHPT) are associated with multiple gland disease (MGD), persistence and recurr...

Analysis of Activating GCM2 Sequence Variants in Sporadic Parathyroid Adenomas.

Sporadic, solitary parathyroid adenoma is the commonest cause of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Apart from germline variants in certain cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor genes, and occasionally i...

Calcitonin Pre-treatment to Improve SPECT-CT Sensitivity

Patients with biochemically confirmed primary hyperparathyroidism and non-localizing SPECT-CT exam within the past year will be included. Subjects will be treated with calcitonin to lower ...

Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics of Oral Salmon Calcitonin in Patients With Osteoarthritis

The purpose of this study is to expose patients with OA to calcitonin and to determine plasma calcitonin levels after administration of 0.6 mg and 0.8 mg oral calcitonin and 200 IU nasal c...

Circulating miRNA in Primary Hyperparathyroidism

The goal of this study is to: 1. Analyze the expression levels of circulating (serum) miRNAs in primary hyperparathyroidism patients with and without osteoporosis, and patients with osteop...

SMC021A - Absorption, Efficacy and Tolerance in Patients With Osteoarthritis. A Placebo-Controlled 14-Days Study

The purpose of this study is to expose patients with OA to calcitonin and to determine plasma calcitonin levels after administration of 0.6 mg and 0.8 mg oral calcitonin. Also the purpose ...

Oral Peptones Load in Normocalcemic and Hypercalcemic Primary Hyperparathyroidism and Healthy Subjects

The purpose of this study is to assess if subjects with hyperparathyroidism with normal serum calcium levels have different responses in the calcium regulating hormonal handling compared t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH) triggering responses that increase blood CALCIUM. It is characterized by HYPERCALCEMIA and BONE RESORPTION, eventually leading to bone diseases. PRIMARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is caused by parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM is increased PTH secretion in response to HYPOCALCEMIA, usually caused by chronic KIDNEY DISEASES.

Cell surface proteins that bind calcitonin and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Calcitonin receptors outside the nervous system mediate the role of calcitonin in calcium homeostasis. The role of calcitonin receptors in the brain is not well understood.

Calcitonin gene-related peptide. A 37-amino acid peptide derived from the calcitonin gene. It occurs as a result of alternative processing of mRNA from the calcitonin gene. The neuropeptide is widely distributed in neural tissue of the brain, gut, perivascular nerves, and other tissue. The peptide produces multiple biological effects and has both circulatory and neurotransmitter modes of action. In particular, it is a potent endogenous vasodilator.

Cell surface proteins that bind calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. CGRP receptors are present in both the central nervous system and the periphery and are not the same as calcitonin receptors.

A receptor activity-modifying protein that is a subunit of specific G-PROTEIN COUPLED RECEPTORS. The CALCITONIN GENE-RELATED PEPTIDE RECEPTOR is formed from a dimer of this protein and CALCITONIN RECEPTOR-LIKE PROTEIN, while an isoform of the ISLET AMYLOID POLYPEPTIDE RECEPTOR is formed from this protein dimerizing with the CALCITONIN RECEPTOR.
