Intact parathyroid hormone assay is superior to mid region assay in the EDTA-infusion test in hyperparathyroidism.

We examined the use of an intact parathyroid hormone two-site immunoradiometric assay compared with a mid region parathyroid hormone radioimmunoassay in ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid-infusion test in 15 patients with hyperparathyroidism. During the test, plasma intact parathyroid hormone levels increased by 240 +/- 43%, whereas the plasma levels of mid… CONTINUE READING
