The basal rate of cell proliferation in normal human parathyroid tissue: implications for the pathogenesis of hyperparathyroidism.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The basal rate of cell proliferation in the human parathyroid gland is generally believed to be low, but has never previously been measured directly, although, as in other tissues, it is relevant to the pathogenesis of neoplasia. METHODS We retrieved embedded tissue blocks of parathyroids removed at autopsy from 39 patients without… (More)
