Persistent secondary hyperparathyroidism after renal transplantation.
BACKGROUND The persistence of secondary hyperparathyroidism after renal transplantation is frequent and often complicated by overt hypercalcemia. Recent investigations have shown an effect of theExpand

Direct in vivo assessment of parathyroid hormone-calcium relationship curve in renal patients.
Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHP) is a well documented finding even in the early stages of chronic renal failure (CRF). A sigmoidal relationship, fitting a four parameter model, links PTH secretionExpand

The calcitonin-calcium relation curve and calcitonin secretory parameters in renal patients with variable degrees of renal function.
Increased calcitonin (CT) levels have been reported in chronic renal failure, even before the uraemic phase and in the absence of hypercalcaemia. Furthermore, a sigmoidal CT-calcium relationship wasExpand

Effects of successful renal transplantation on left ventricular mass.
Left ventricular hypertrophy is an independent cardiovascular risk factor in the general population and in patients with chronic renal failure. Relatively little is known about the effects of renalExpand

Different dietary calcium intake and relative supersaturation of calcium oxalate in the urine of patients forming renal stones.
1. Dietary calcium restriction, an efficient practice in reducing urinary calcium excretion, has been reported to induce either an increase or no change in oxalate excretion, questioning its use inExpand

Abnormal arachidonic acid content of red blood cell membranes and main lithogenic factors in stone formers.
BACKGROUND Increased arachidonic acid content in red blood cell membranes of stone formers (SF) has recently been reported and is hypothesized as representing the underlying causal factor for bothExpand
