Abstract

The object of this study was to determine whether increased circulating levels of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTH-rp) may explain the increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) bioactivity in pregnancy. In 41 healthy pregnant women (age 19-41 years), PTH-rp and corrected calcium levels were measured and compared with those of nonpregnant control women (n=18, age 20-39 years). PTH-rp and corrected calcium levels were significantly higher in pregnant women (PTH-rp 21.9±7.9 pg/ml, P
