    Recent studies have suggested that hyperhomocystenemia and low plasma folate are associated with fracture and also bone mineral density (BMD) and that they may contribute to the pathogenicity of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. However, as plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) and plasma folate...

    A novel mechanism for skeletal resistance in uremia. Background. In treating secondary hyperparathyroidism, the target level of serum intact parathyroid hormone (I-PTH) should be three to five times normal to prevent adynamic bone disease. In circulation, there is a non-(1-84) PTH-truncated...

    Fluoride, a naturally occurring element, exists in combination with other elements as a fluoride compound, and is found naturally in water, foods, soil, and several minerals such as fluorite and fluorapatite. Fluoride normally enters the environment and human body through water, food, industrial...

    Members of the GATA and RUNX families of genes appear to have conserved functions during hematopoiesis from Drosophila to mammals. In Drosophila, the GATA factor Serpent (Srp) is required in blood cell progenitors for the formation of the two populations of blood cells (plasmatocytes and crystal...

    Background: Pseudohyperkalaemia caused by recentrifugation after storage or delay in separation of serum from blood cells is not uncommon. The purpose of this study was to audit pseudohyperkalaemia at commercial laboratories in Japan. Methods: A questionnaire asking about how samples are handled...
