In order to establish the role of calcitonin (CT) in postmenopausal bone loss, we studied CT metabolism in 25 pre- and postmenopausal women. Postmenopausal women presented a highly significant reduction of CT basal levels compared to premenopausal females (p less than 0.01). Also, production rates of CT in osteoporotics were significantly lower than in(More)
