BACKGROUND/AIMS Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHP) is characterized by high bone turnover and elevated serum bone remodeling markers. Elevation of serum interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels is also characteristic of end-stage renal disease. This study investigates the effects of intravenous calcitriol on serum bone resorptive markers, namely, type 5b tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRACP5b) and IL-6 in patients with SHP. METHODS Intravenous calcitriol therapy was given for 16 weeks to 24… CONTINUE READING
