Clinical implications of estimation of intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) versus total immunoreactive PTH in normal subjects and hyperparathyroid patients.

Abstract

We describe a clinical study comparing the value of measurements of intact human PTH [hPTH(1-84)] and total PTH immunoreactivity [hPTH-(1-84) plus fragments]. A two-step immunochemical method was used to separate plasma hPTH-(1-84) from all circulating PTH fragments. The first step involved extraction and concentration of plasma PTH using solid phase… (More)
