Assay for Parathyroid Hormone Related Protein (PTHrp) Is Back

About a month ago, I posted that the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health (DCPAH) at Michigan State University had announced that the reagents for their parathyroid hormone related protein assay (PTHrP) were not longer available.

This week Michigan State University's DCPAH announced that they are back in business and can again run serum samples for both parathyroid hormone (PTH) as well as PTHrp.

This is the only laboratory that offers the PTHrp test used in the workup for dogs and cats with hypercalcemia. So this is great news that this important assay is up and running again soon.

See the Announcement page on the DCPAH website for more information.
