salmon calcitonin

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0073994
Pharmacologic Substance
2.

Osteoporosis

A disorder characterized by reduced bone mass, with a decrease in cortical thickness and in the number and size of the trabeculae of cancellous bone (but normal chemical composition), resulting in increased fracture incidence. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
14535
Concept ID:
C0029456
Disease or Syndrome
3.

Calcitonin

A peptide hormone that lowers calcium concentration in the blood. In humans, it is released by thyroid cells and acts to decrease the formation and absorptive activity of osteoclasts. Its role in regulating plasma calcium is much greater in children and in certain diseases than in normal adults. [from MeSH]

7.

Encoded by human CALCA Gene (Calcitonin Family), 32-aa 3.4-kD secreted Calcitonin polypeptide hormone is cleaved from a large polyprotein precursor synthesized by thyroid parafollicular 'C' cells. Opposite to the effect of PTH, Calcitonin induces a rapid drop in blood calcium and phosphate level by promoting bone incorporation. (NCI) [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:

Osteoporosis

Metabolic disorder associated with fractures of the femoral neck, vertebrae, and distal forearm. It occurs commonly in women within 15-20 years after menopause, and is caused by factors associated with menopause including estrogen deficiency. [from MeSH]
