Metabolic Bone Disease, Volume II describes the clinical disorders of bone and mineral metabolism characterized by elevated levels of circulating parathyroid hormone. This book emphasizes the relationship between hormonal synthesis, biological activity, and abnormalities in specific clinical syndromes. The metabolism and structure-function relationships of parathyroid hormone and other revealing interactions with specific receptors in target organs are also elaborated in this publication, including a basis for some understanding of the parathyroid hormone and vitamin D-“resistant” states. Other topics discussed include the fundamental considerations of the physiology and biochemistry of parathyroid hormone; pathogenesis of renal osteodystrophy; and metabolic aspects of Paget's disease. This publication also covers the effects of hypercalcemia and normocalcemic disorders of mineral metabolism. This volume is beneficial to clinicians and students concerned with metabolic bone diseases.
