[The effect of thyroparathyroidectomy, parathyroid hormone and calcitonin on plasma strontium in rats].Rev Esp Fisiol 1990; 46(2):139-45RE
The effect of thyroparathyroidectomy (TPTX) on the plasmatic Sr concentrations in rats previously supplemented with this element, has been studied, as well as its effect on the treatment of TPTX rats with hormonal combinations and, finally, the one presenting hormonal excess or defect of the phosphocalcium metabolism regulating hormones: parathormone (PTH) and calcitonin (CT). Twenty four hours after TPTX, the plasmatic Sr concentrations show a pattern similar to those of Ca and Mg and contrary to Pi. The subsequent evolution is different, as the plasmatic concentrations increase, probably due to the maintenance of Sr supplementation. The administration of this element to TPTX rats and the treatment with a hormonal combination with two of the following hormones: PTH, CT and T4 antagonize the hormonal effect on the restoration of the plasmatic concentrations of the elements analyzed. The PTH excess and defect (TPTX treated with CT + T4) show plasmatic increases in Sr; the CT excess provokes decreases while the defect (administration of PTH + T4) causes increases. The T4 administration reproduces the CT effects, but inconsistently. These results suggest that CT may be the hormone that plays a regulating role in the plasmatic Sr concentrations.
