The purpose of this study is to characterize the safety and tolerability of single rising doses of KAI-4169 in hemodialysis subjects with secondary hyperparathyroidism.
This 6 month long study will assess an investigational medication for patients on dialysis with secondary hyperparathyroidism. The study will look at the effects on parathyroid hormone, c...

The purpose of this study is to determine if a reduction in the enzyme 1-hydroxylase, which activates Vitamin D, is the cause of overactivity of the parathyroid glands (called secondary hy...
This study was performed to determine whether calcitriol provides a therapeutic advantage to alfacalcidol for treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism in ESRD patients.
Hyperparathyroidism is associated with hypercalcemia and the excess of parathyroid hormone secretion. However, the alterations in molecular pattern of functional genes during parathyroid tumorigenesis...
For patients with refractory secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT), parathyroidectomy (PTX) has received increasing attention. However, evidence-based medicine shows that there is still controversy reg...
Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) is a frequent complication of renal disease and most commonly occurs in patients on haemodialysis (HD) with metabolic, vascular, endocrine, and bone complications....
The interplay between vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH) represents one of the most important metabolic mechanisms of regulation of the calcium/phosphorus homeostasis. Secondary hyperparathyroidi...
This study aims to investigate the effects of hybrid blood purification treatment on secondary hyperparathyroidism for maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients.
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.
Abnormally elevated PARATHYROID HORMONE secretion as a response to HYPOCALCEMIA. It is caused by chronic KIDNEY FAILURE or other abnormalities in the controls of bone and mineral metabolism, leading to various BONE DISEASES, such as RENAL OSTEODYSTROPHY.
Decalcification of bone or abnormal bone development due to chronic KIDNEY DISEASES, in which 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis by the kidneys is impaired, leading to reduced negative feedback on PARATHYROID HORMONE. The resulting SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM eventually leads to bone disorders.
A genus of HALOBACTERIACEAE distinguished from other genera in the family by the presence of specific derivatives of TGD-2 polar lipids. Haloarcula are found in neutral saline environments such as salt lakes, marine salterns, and saline soils.
A family of gram-negative, moderately halophilic bacteria in the order Oceanospirillales. Members of the family have been isolated from temperate and Antarctic saline lakes, solar salt facilities, saline soils, and marine environments.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
