UNLABELLED Renal bone disease which develops in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) is not a uniform metabolic disorder. Although bone histomorphometry is accepted to be the gold standard for characterizing the state of disease progression, the techniques involved are cumbersome and expensive so that it cannot be used routinely. As a result, numerous biochemical markes have been developed to measure bone formation and resorption. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the suitability… CONTINUE READING
