Information

PTH-C is useful for clinical assessment of parathyroid gland dysfunction and other disorders of calcium homeostasis. As renal function deteriorates in patients with kidney disease, the clearance of PTH-C (which is excreted only by the kidney) significantly decreases and its half life in the circulation is prolonged, resulting in strikingly high PTH-C concentrations even in the absence of parathyroid disease.
