Top Endocrine Publications of 2010: Canine and Feline Parathyroid and Calcium Disorders

In my third compilation of the canine and feline endocrine publications of 2010, I’m moving on to disorders of the parathyroid gland, including the clinical problems of hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia.

Listed below are 18 research papers written in 2010 that deal with a variety of topics and issues related to calcium, parathyroid or vitamin D metabolism.

These range from the nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism (2, 10) to calcium and phosphorus homeostasis in chronic kidney disease (1, 13) and in the whelping bitch (9); from studies of the feline calcium-sensing receptor (6) to investigations of feline tooth resorptive lesions and vitamin D3 status (7); and from studies of ionized calcium assays (15) to rapid parathyroid hormone assays (8).

Other papers discuss clinical issue ranging from primary hyperparathyroidism (14) to hypercalcemia of malignancy (5, 12, 16, 17); and from the hypercalcemia associated with Heterobilharzia and Leishmaniasis infections (3,4) to treatment of idiopathic hypercalcemia in cats with oral alendronate (18).
