  author={C. James and John Watkin Lewis and Eduardo Slatopolsky and Jack H. Ladenson},
We assessed the diagnostic utility of measuring C-terminal immunoreactive parathyrin (i-PTH) concurrently with free (CaF) or total (CaT) calcium in four groups of patients: (1) 91 patients with histologically proven primary hyperparathyroidlsm; (2) seven patients without histological evidence of hyperparathyroidism; (3) 70 patients with non-parathyroid malignancies with hypercalcemia; and (4) 28 similar patients without hypercalcemia.
