Profound changes in calcium metabolism occur during pregnancy. The mother has to make available extra calcium for fetal requirements while ensuring that her plasma and bone calcium concentrations are satisfactorily maintained. In a cross-sectional study plasma concentrations of the major calcium-regulating hormones--namely, calcitonin, parathyroid hormone,(More)
In man, the major function of calcitonin appears to be prevention of excessive or unwanted bone resorption. There is a striking sex difference in circulating levels, with a relative deficiency in women. Calcitonin secretion in young adults is increased by oestrogens and therefore long periods of oestrogen lack, such as after the menopause, may be associated(More)
A major function of calcitonin in humans appears to be maintenance of the skeleton. There is a marked sex difference in circulating calcitonin levels: women have much lower levels. This has led to speculation that calcitonin lack may be one factor involved in the pathogenesis of postmenopausal bone loss. We have measured levels of calcitonin and the other(More)
Primary diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the central nervous system (CNS DLBCL) is a distinct and aggressive lymphoma that is confined to CNS. Since, central nervous system is barrier-protected and immunologically silent; role of TLR/BCR signaling in pathogenesis and biology of CNS DLBCL is intriguing. Genomic mutations in key regulators of TLR/BCR(More)
AIMS The cell of origin (COO) based molecular characterisation into germinal centre B-cell-like (GCB) and activated B-cell-like (ABC) subtypes are central to the pathogenesis and clinical course in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Globally, clinical laboratories employ pragmatic but less than ideal immunohistochemical (IHC) assay for COO(More)
