Ca and Accelerator Mass Spectrometry to Monitor Calcium Metabolism in End Stage Renal Disease Patients

Abstract

Background: Monitoring bone resorption with measurements of bone density and biochemical markers is indirect. We hypothesized that bone resorption can be studied directly by serial measurements of the ratio Ca/Ca in serum after in vivo labeling of calcium pools with Ca. We report the preparation of an intravenous Ca dose suitable for humans, an analytical… (More)
