One patient was previously followed for hypophosphatemic rickets and treated with calcitriol
These are available as vitamin D analogues (e.g., calcitriol
, calcifediol, doxercalciferol, and paricalcitol) and come under pregnancy drug category C.
To investigate the presence or absence of an interaction between budesonide and calcitriol
, the 2 x 2 factorial experimental design was used.
Further, our patient was unique and challenging to manage due to requirement of high doses of calcium, calcitriol
, and Vitamin D.
Consistent with our findings, = a high risk of hypocalcaemia in patients with CKD is noted; however with aggressive calcium and calcitriol
supplementation, use of high calcium dialysate, and weekly blood tests monitoring calcium in the first month of initiating denosumab, none of the patients needed inpatient admission for management of hypocalcaemia.
We have then tried to establish a tumorgraft model from freshly collected breast cancer samples in nude mice to study calcitriol
To examine concentration-dependent effects, three concentrations (10, 100, and 1000 nM) of calcitriol
were added to both NP and HP media.
Antiproliferative effects of calcitriol
in B cells such as proliferation, initiation of apoptosis, decreased immunoglobulin production and inhibition of differentiation, were earlier considered to be exclusively indirectly mediated by T helper (Th) cells.
tuberculosis infection to decrease calcitriol
synthesis and directly lower blood calcium levels.
The treatment with topical fluticasone propionate 0.05% and topical calcitriol
ointment with 0.5 mg/kg of prednisolone daily for 6 weeks with close monitoring.
production is a very rare occurrence in patients with hypercalcemia associated with solid tumors, where suppressed serum calcitriol
levels are characteristic.
