Description

Each contribution to this volume provides a general synthesis and detailed analysis of the subject, resulting in a series of expositions on the physiology of bone, calcium metabolism, and ionic control of metabolic processes. Also discussed are such topics as hormonal control by vitamin D metabolites, parathyroid hormone, and calcitonin, as well as topics related to synthesis, secretion, and mechanism of action on these hormones. Generous cross referencing of subject matter between chapters demonstrates a full appreciation of the close physiological interrelationships involved in these systems.show more
