Abstract

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is strongly concerned with the pathogenesis of urinary stones. PTH is mainly regulated by the serum calcium concentration and not by other hormones, as is usually the case. We studied whether PTH is also regulated by adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) or not. ACTH (0.25 mg) was injected intravenously to 17 patients with primary… (More)
