Abstract

Although levels of serum immunoreactive parathyroid hormone (iPTH) increase with age in women, this could be caused by retention of non-biologically active PTH fragments by the aging kidney. In 102 normal women, aged 30 to 89 yr, serum iPTH increased with age by 58% (r = 0.33, p less than 0.001) with antiserum GP-1M (which has midmolecule specificity) and 43% (r = 0.32, p less than 0.001) with antiserum CH-12M (which may have whole molecule specificity); urinary cAMP/GFR excretion increased by 29% (r = 0.22, p less than 0.05). The results of these assays were validated by comparison with serum levels of biologically active PTH (BioPTH) in immunoextracts of serum followed by renal adenylate cyclase assay in a selected subgroup of 25 of the women. Serum BioPTH correlated with serum iPTH assessed by antiserum GP-1M (r = 0.48, p less than 0.05) and antiserum CH-12M (r = 0.48, p less than 0.05) but not with urinary cAMP. The data are consistent with an increase of parathyroid function with aging: clearly, we do not find decreased parathyroid function as would be expected if age-related bone loss was not mediated, in part, by PTH.
