Reagents, Immunoassay, Bone Metabolism Hormone, Parathyroid Hormone, M-Region
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum) to determine the mid-region inactive fragment (amino acid sequence 44 to 68) of the parathyroid hormone ([PTH]; i.e., M-Region PTH fragment). The level of M-region PTH in serum is used to determine the cause of hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia and the parathyroid function status in disorders such as bone and mineral metabolism and renal failure. Secretion of M-region PTH fragments persist even in hypercalcemia.
