or parathormone,
a hormone secreted by the parathyroid glands that regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphate in the body. It has been purified extensively and appears to be a protein containing 84 amino-acid residues, a sequence of which

It is highly probable that patients with clinical PHPT have a longer evolution with constant exposition to high calcium levels and parathormone (PTH) with a progressive damaging effect in the principal target organs like bone and kidney [1, 2].
VST I and Cg A peptides, located in parathyroid granules, are cosecreted when the serum calcium is low, making an inhibitory effect on parathormone secretion [44].
Routine biochemistry tests, complete blood count, thyroid function tests, parathormone, prolactin, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, testosterone, and cortisol levels were within the normal limits.
Fasting sample was taken for the following investigations: Fasting blood sugar, fasting insulin, intact parathormone, lipid profile, and vitamin D were done.
Serum 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D (1,25(OH)2D3), 25 hydroxy vitamin D (25(OH) D) and parathormone levels in diabetic retinopathy.
The lowest 25(OH) D level that will not activate parathormone is 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L); therefore, a sufficient vitamin D level is accepted as >30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) (2-4).
The classic biochemical profile is characterized by normal calcium and parathormone levels, low or inappropriately normal 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D levels, and elevated alkaline phosphatase levels [12].
The inclusion criteria were age ranging between 18 and 80 years, parathormone [greater than or equal to] 65 pg/mL, serum total Ca between 2.2 and 2.5 mmol/L, and phosphate levels between 2.9 mg/dL and 4.5 mg/dL.

Thus, our aim was to evaluate whether vitamin D and vitamin D-related bone markers, which have also been related to metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, namely, osteocalcin (OC), parathormone (PTH), and bone alkaline phosphatase (BAP) [20, 21], are altered in AAD, also according to dissection localization at the ascending or descending aorta.
