Calcium and Phosphorus Balance and Calcium Kinetics in Patients With Stage 3/4 Chronic Kidney Disease

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of calcium absorption and metabolism in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) using calcium balance and kinetic methods.

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...

Effectiveness of Supplemental Calcium in Preventing Postpartum Depression

This study will evaluate the effectiveness of taking supplemental calcium while pregnant in reducing the risk of postpartum depression.

Bone Density in Children With IBD Treated With Amorphous Calcium or Commercial Crystalline Calcium

Patients diagnosed with, or in risk of osteoporosis regularly take calcium dietary supplements, although their contribution to BMD maintenance, prevention of bone loss or reduction of the ...

Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Tolerability and Efficacy of Microencapsulated Calcium Carbonate

Interventional Clinical trial with food supplement, randomized, double-blind, comparative between microencapsulated calcium, calcium carbonate salts standardized and calcium citrate, in a ...

Effect of Calcium Citrate versus Calcium Carbonate on elevated PTH after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. A Double-blinded, Randomized Trial.

Following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels potentially harmful to bone health are commonly observed. Owing to assumed superior absorption, calcium citrate is ...

L-thyroxine malabsorption due to calcium carbonate impairs blood pressure, total cholesterolemia, and fasting glycemia.

Calcium carbonate was previously shown to interfere with L-thyroxine absorption. To estimate the magnitude of tablet L-thyroxine malabsorption caused by calcium carbonate, with resulting increase in s...

A prospective study of the influence of the skeleton on calcium mass transfer during hemodialysis.

Calcium gradient, the difference between serum calcium and dialysate calcium d[Ca], is the main contributor factor influencing calcium transfer during hemodialysis. The impact, however, of bone turnov...

Pregnancy supplementation of Gambian mothers with calcium carbonate alters mid-childhood IGF1 in a sex-specific manner.

Sex-specific effects of pregnancy calcium carbonate supplementation have been reported in 8-12 year old Gambian children, indicating faster growth in boys but slower growth in girls born to calcium-...

Global inequities in dietary calcium intake during pregnancy: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Evidence shows that adequate calcium intake during pregnancy reduces the risk of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. In most low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs) daily calcium intake is well below...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.

Signal transduction mechanisms whereby calcium mobilization (from outside the cell or from intracellular storage pools) to the cytoplasm is triggered by external stimuli. Calcium signals are often seen to propagate as waves, oscillations, spikes, sparks, or puffs. The calcium acts as an intracellular messenger by activating calcium-responsive proteins.

Intracellular signaling peptides and proteins that bind to CALCIUM. They undergo allosteric changes when bound to CALCIUM that affects their interaction with other signal-transducing molecules. They differ from CALCIUM-SENSING RECEPTORS which sense extracellular calcium levels.

A class of G-protein-coupled receptors that react to varying extracellular CALCIUM levels. Calcium-sensing receptors in the PARATHYROID GLANDS play an important role in the maintenance of calcium HOMEOSTASIS by regulating the release of PARATHYROID HORMONE. They differ from INTRACELLULAR CALCIUM-SENSING PROTEINS which sense intracellular calcium levels.

A stromal interaction molecule that functions in the regulation of calcium influx following depletion of intracellular calcium in the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM. It translocates to the plasma membrane upon calcium depletion where it activates the CALCIUM RELEASE ACTIVATED CALCIUM CHANNEL ORAI1.
