Study of the Relationship Between Calcium Levels and Intact Parathyroid Hormone (iPTH) in Adults With Repaired or Palliated Conotruncal Cardiac Defects

2014-08-27 03:58:15 | BioPortfolio

Summary

OBJECTIVES: I. Identify latent hypoparathyroidism in normocalcemic adult survivors with repaired conotruncal cardiac defects, by evaluating parathyroid gland secretory function after induced hypocalcemia.

II. Determine the relationship of parathyroid hormone secretion to microdeletions in the same region of chromosome 22q11 as found in patients with DiGeorge anomaly.

Description

PROTOCOL OUTLINE:

Patients are given sodium citrate over a 2 hour infusion on day 1. Blood is drawn at times -30, -15, 0, and every 10 minutes thereafter during the infusion. On day 2, patients are given calcium gluconate over a 2 hour infusion. Blood is drawn at times -30, -15, 0, and every 10 minutes thereafter during the infusion.

Efficacy of Calcium Citrate Versus Calcium Carbonate in Maintaining Normal Serum Calcium Level and Changing Quality of Life in Patients With Chronic Hypoparathyroidism

Hypoparathyroidism is an endocrinopathy characterized by a deficient secretion or action of PTH associated with low calcium level. According to the European guideline (2015), standard trea...

Long-term conventional treatment of chronic hypoparathyroidism does not fully restore calcium homeostasis leading to increased morbidity, emergency events and reduced subjective health sta...

Study of the Effect of Recombinant Human Parathyroid Hormone [rhPTH(1-84)] on Metabolic Control and Symptoms Among Adults With Hypoparathyroidism

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether adding an investigational medication called recombinant human parathyroid hormone (rhPTH[1-84]) to standard hypoparathyroidism therapy (ora...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Antimony complex where the metal may exist in either the pentavalent or trivalent states. The pentavalent gluconate is used in leishmaniasis. The trivalent gluconate is most frequently used in schistosomiasis.

The calcium salt of gluconic acid. The compound has a variety of uses, including its use as a calcium replenisher in hypocalcemic states.

An electrogenic ion exchange protein that maintains a steady level of calcium by removing an amount of calcium equal to that which enters the cells. It is widely distributed in most excitable membranes, including the brain and heart.

An enzyme that, in the presence of ATP and COENZYME A, catalyzes the cleavage of citrate to yield acetyl CoA, oxaloacetate, ADP, and ORTHOPHOSPHATE. This reaction represents an important step in fatty acid biosynthesis. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 4.1.3.8.

A calcium channel blocker with marked vasodilator action. It is an effective antihypertensive agent and differs from other calcium channel blockers in that it does not reduce glomerular filtration rate and is mildly natriuretic, rather than sodium retentive.
