Serum procalcitonin as an index of inhalation injury in burns.
The molecular heterogeneity of serum immunoreactive calcitonin (iCT) was analyzed from a prospective study of 41 burn patients. Using different region-specific anticalcitonin antisera, the ratio ofExpand

Radioimmunoassay of calcitonin in human plasma.
A sensitive, specific radioimmunoassay of calcitonin is described, suitable for measuring the hormone in peripheral plasma of normal man. With this assay we have demonstrated that calcitonin isExpand

Salmon calcitonin in hypercalcemia
We have undertaken a study of 24 hypercalcemic patients with the use of salmon calcitonin as a therapeutic agent. Seventy‐five percent of the patients exhibited a clinically significant decrease inExpand

In vitro studies of calcitonin release in man.
The influence of various agents on calcitonin release from human thyroid was studied in vitro. Under the condition of this investigation, calcium, magnesium and phosphate did not stimulate calcitoninExpand

Ectopic secretion of calcitonin by oat-cell carcinoma.
SEVERAL humoral substances are ectopically produced by cancer tissue.1 2 3 Bronchogenic cancer —in particular, oat-cell carcinoma of the lung — appears to be "multipotential" in this regard.Expand

Salmon calcitonin in the treatment of hypercalcemia.
Synthetic salmon calcitonin was evaluated in 23 patients with hypercalcemia of different causes treated continuously or intermittently for periods from one day to two months. Clinically importantExpand

Metabolism of formiminoglutamic acid by vitamin B12 and folic acid-deficient rats fed excess methionine.
The amidine carbon atom (C-Z) of L-histidine is known to be an efficient metabolic precursor of single carbon units. Following the administration of n-histidine-2-Cr4, the radioactivity has beenExpand

Calcitonin in extrathyroidal tissues of man.
Prior studies have demonstrated detectable immunoreactive calcitonin in the serum and urine of totally thyroidectomized humans, suggesting that the hormone may be secreted by extrathyroidal tissues.Expand

Calcitonin levels in chronic renal disease.
High levels of serum calcitonin were found in patients with chronic renal failure. Serum calcitonin correlated directly with the phosphate to total calcium ratio; calcitonin levels correlatedExpand
