Serum sialyl tranferase activity (STA) and protein bound carbohydrate were measured in hypercalcemic patients with surgically documented hyperparathyroidism (n = 15) or with cancer without skeletal metastases (n = 10). Precipitable protein-bound sialic acid and hexosamine, but not neutral hexoses or fucose were significantly (P less than 0.025) increased 40… CONTINUE READING
