Active Ingredient History
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is an 84-amino acid peptide that regulates the function of osteoblasts and osteocytes and is secreted by the parathyroid gland in response to changes in the concentration of extracellular calcium. Parathyroid hormone is approved under the brand name NATPARA as an adjunct to calcium and vitamin D to control hypocalcemia in patients with hypoparathyroidism. It is also available for treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in many European countries. Parathyroid hormone is an activator of parathyroid hormone 2 receptor. In addition, was shown, that downregulation of Notch in osteoblasts and osteocytes may represent a mechanism contributing to the anabolic effects of parathyroid hormone in bone. NCATS
