The concentration of parathyroid hormone (measured by radioimmunoassay) in plasma of patients with severe chronic uremia is frequently much higher than it is in the majority of cases having adenomatous hyperparathyroidism. igher-than-normal concentrations of parathyroid hormone in plasma are found in a significant percentage of unselected patients with bronchogenic carcinoma.
