The radiological diagnosis of osteoporosis: a new approach.
This method has been applied to about 150 patients suspected of metabolic bone disease, and abnormal results were obtained in eighty-seven patients, and Arbitrary normal standards have been established in a control series of 125 adult outpatients. Expand
Calcium malabsorption in elderly women with vertebral fractures: evidence for resistance to the action of vitamin D metabolites on the bowel.
Elderly women with vertebral fractures have malabsorption of calcium which is resistant to the action of vitamin D metabolites at concentrations which correct calcium mal absorption in elderly women without vertebra fractures. Expand

The investigation of a patient with a suspected disorder of calcium metabolism is most rapidly and efficiently performed by observing a standard procedure, the initial stages of which are simple andExpand
Role of kidney in regulation of plasma-calcium.
Abstract It is suggested that it is the action of parathyroid hormone on renal tubular reabsorption of calcium which is mainly responsible for plasma-calcium homœostasis in man.
Inhibitors of the growth and aggregation of calcium oxalate crystals in vitro.
It is suggested that highly charged anions and polyanions may have some clinical value as a possible treatment for recurrent calcium oxalate stone-formation in man. Expand
Bone Turnover Model based on a Continuously Expanding Exchangeable Calcium Pool
A model is proposed in which the serum specific activity at any time is determined by the combined effects of pool expansion on the one hand, and excretion and mineralization on the other. Expand
Calcium malabsorption in the elderly: the effect of treatment with oral 25‐hydroxyvitamin D3
Calcium malabsorption was associated with low 25‐hydroxyvitamin D concentrations and was corrected by increasing these into the normal range by treatment with oral 25‐Hydroxyv Vitamin D3, and treatment also increased 1,25‐dihydroxyv vitamin D, and decreased parathyroid hormone concentrations.

Calcium crystalluria in recurrent renal-stone formers.
The calcium-oxalate crystalluria in the recurrent stone-formers was mainly of octahedral crystals of calcium oxalate dihydrate, often in aggregates up to 200 μ in diameter, whereas in the controls the calcium Oxalate was in the form of very small particles with little or no aggregation. Expand
