Sub-chronic exposure to ammonia inhibits the growth of juvenile Wuchang bream (Megalobrama amblycephala) mainly by downregulation of growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor axis.

Environ Toxicol 2021 Jun 15;36(6):1195-1205. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

College of Fisheries, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China.

In this study, healthy Wuchang bream (Megalobrama amblycephala) juveniles were exposed to 0, 5, 10, 20 and 30 mg/L total ammonia nitrogen for 30 days to elucidate toxic effects and mechanisms of ammonia on growth performance involved with the regulation of growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor (GH/IGF) and hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axes. Our results showed that the increasing total ammonia nitrogen concentrations caused dose-depend decreases in the weight gain and specific growth rate but increases in the food conversion ratio and mortality in juvenile bream, indicating growth inhibitory effects induced by ammonia. Concurrently, GH, IGF-1 at protein and mRNA levels were significantly decreased in ammonia exposure groups (p < . Read More

Familial Hyperparathyroidism.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2021 25;12:623667. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Metabolic Diseases Branch, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, United States.

Regulation of the serum calcium level in humans is achieved by the endocrine action of parathyroid glands working in concert with vitamin D and a set of critical target cells and tissues including osteoblasts, osteoclasts, the renal tubules, and the small intestine. The parathyroid glands, small highly vascularized endocrine organs located behind the thyroid gland, secrete parathyroid hormone (PTH) into the systemic circulation as is needed to keep the serum free calcium concentration within a tight physiologic range. Primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT), a disorder of mineral metabolism usually associated with abnormally elevated serum calcium, results from the uncontrolled release of PTH from one or several abnormal parathyroid glands.

Treatment of pathological fractures due to brown tumours in a patient with hyperparathyroidism and lack of parafibromin expression - A case report.

Trauma Case Rep 2020 Dec 14;30:100367. Epub 2020 Oct 14.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Medical University of Warsaw, Lindleya 4, 02-005 Warsaw, Poland.

Brown tumours, known also as osteitis fibrosa cystica, are benign osteolytic lesions found in 5-15% of patients with hyperparathyroidism, and commonly located in mandibles, the shafts of long bones, the pelvis or ribs. As they compromise bone strength, pathological fractures can be a typical effect of their presence; but given the complex nature of the disease process in this case, such fractures require an interdisciplinary approach directed at orthopaedic treatment, plus management of the underlying hyperparathyroidism. In this paper, we present the case of a 36-year-old female patient with bilateral anophthalmia, hyperparathyroidism and nephrolithiasis, in whom a fall led to her sustaining a pathological fracture of the proximal third of the femoral shaft in the place of an osteolytic lesion, as well as second pathological fracture of the left patella also changed by multiple examples of such lesions.

Surgical Treatment of Primary Hyperparathyroidism: Which Therapy to Whom?

Sisli Etfal Hastan Tip Bul 2019 27;53(3):201-214. Epub 2019 Aug 27.

Department of General Surgery, Health Sciences University, Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) is characterized by an increase in the levels of PTH and Ca, or one of these (Ca, PTH) as a result of a dysregulation of calcium (Ca) metabolism due to inappropriate excess parathyroid hormone (PTH) autonomously produced from one or more than one parathyroid glands. Ninety to 95% of pHPT is a sporadic type, which is not associated with the familial history and other endocrine organ tumors, and 5-10% of it is hereditary. While 80-85% of pHPT arises from a single parathyroid adenoma, 4-5% is caused by a double adenoma, 10-15% by multigland hyperplasia and less than 1% by parathyroid cancer. Read More
