    Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a frequent complication of chronic renal failure (CRF) and a major factor in the pathogenesis of renal osteodystrophy. A high serum phosphate, decreased levels of serum 1,25(OH)[sub 2] D[sub 3] and the subsequently low serum calcium are the major metabolic...

    The optimum range for parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels in children with chronic renal failure (CRF) remains undefined. We aimed to determine growth velocity in children with CRF managed with normal PTH levels. We performed a retrospective case note review of 99 children (77 boys), with a...

    Osteoprotegerin (OPG), receptor activator of the nuclear factor κB ligand (RANKL) and fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) play a central role in renal osteodystrophy. We evaluated OPG/RANKL and FGF-23 levels in 51 children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) [ n = 26 stage 3 or 4 (CKD3-4) and...

    Parathyroid hormone (PTH) immunoradiometric assays (IRMA) exhibit cross-reactivity between 1-84 PTH and long carboxyl-terminal-PTH (C-PTH) molecules. C-PTH antagonizes the biological actions of 1-84 PTH and circulates in excess in chronic renal failure (CRF), partially explaining why...
