In order to characterize biochemical markers of bone turnover in home parenteral nutrition(HPN) patients, 8 adult patients on HPN for benign intestinal failure were studied at 0, 6 and 12 months by evaluating serum osteocalcin (bone formation marker), urinary hydroxylysyl pyridinoline, lysyl pyridinoline and beta-galactosyl hydroxylysine (bone resorption… CONTINUE READING
