Although PTH was one of the first hormones measured by immunoassays, there are still many difficulties in its determination due to the low concentration of the hormone in blood and due to the heterogeneity of PTH resulting from different circulating hormone fragments. The aim of our multicenter-study was to evaluate the technical performance… CONTINUE READING
