A competitive binding assay for parathyroid hormone (PTH INS) has been used since 1986 to measure PTH in rats. During the past year an immunoradiometric assay for the measurement of PTH (PTH IRMA) in the rat was developed. The purpose of the present study was to compare results obtained with the PTH INS and IRMA and to provide a framework for comparison for investigators who have used the PTH INS in previous studies. A total of 99 rats were studied; 27 rats had normal renal function, and 72… CONTINUE READING
