- Pamidronate treatment of pediatric fracture patients on chronic steroid therapy. Acott, Philip D.; Wong, Jaime A.; Lang, Bianca A.; Crocker, John F. S. // Pediatric Nephrology;Mar2005, Vol. 20 Issue 3, p368
Pediatric nephrology and rheumatology patients with steroid-induced osteopenia are at risk of skeletal fracture. Bisphosphonate therapy has not been routinely advocated as a primary or secondary intervention for steroid-associated fractures in this population. This case control study evaluates...
- Sodium transport and bone mineral density in hypercalciuria with thiazide treatment. Reusz, György S.; Dobos, Mariann; Vásárhelyi, Barna; Sallay, Péter; Szabó, András; Horváth, Csaba; Szabó, Antal; Byrd, Dennis J.; Thole, Hubert H.; Tulassay, Tivadar // Pediatric Nephrology;1998, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p30
Erythrocyte sodium-potassium (Na[sup +]/K[sup +]) -ATPase and sodium-lithium (Na[sup +]/Li[sup +]) countertransport activities were measured in 18 children (aged 9.6 years, range 6-16 years) with idiopathic hypercalciuria (IHU) to evaluate cellular Na handling. The effect of chronic thiazide...
- Calcimimetic agents: Review and perspectives. Ureña, Pablo; Frazão, João M. // Kidney International Supplement;Jun2003, Issue 85, p91
Calcimimetic agents: Review and perspectives. Background. Recognition of the role of the extracellular calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) in mineral metabolism has greatly improved our understanding of calcium homeostasis. The activation of this receptor by small changes in the extracellular ionized...
- Pathophysiology of hypercalciuria in children. Srivastava, Tarak; Alon, Uri S. // Pediatric Nephrology;Oct2007, Vol. 22 Issue 10, p1659
Urinary excretion of calcium is the result of a complex interplay between three organsâ€”namely, the gastrointestinal tract, bone, and kidneyâ€”which is finely orchestrated by multiple hormones. Hypercalciuria is believed to be a polygenic trait and is influenced significantly by diet....
- Consider Calcitriol-Induced Hypercalcemia in Presence of Low PTH Levels. // Kidney;May/Jun98, Vol. 7 Issue 3, p100
Discusses the abstract of the research paper entitled 'Idiopathic calcitriol-induced hypercalcemia: A new disease entity?,' by E. Evron, S. Goland et al, and published in a 1997 issue of 'Archives of Internal Medicine.'

Presents information on hypercalcemia. Pathophysiology; Clinical manifestations; Differential diagnosis; Treatment.
- hypocalcemia. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p1130
An encyclopedia entry for "hypocalcemia," which refers to abnormally low blood calcium, is presented.
- The Milk-Alkali Syndrome: Current Concepts. Orwoll, Eric S. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Aug82, Vol. 97 Issue 2, p242
Examines developments in research on milk-alkali syndrome, a calcium and alkali metabolism disorder. Clinical features of the disease; Discussion on the pathophysiology of the disease; Treatment options.
