Calcitonin (CT) is a 32 amino acid peptide hormone secreted by the para-follicular C-cells of the thyroid gland under serum calcium control. After acute administration, this peptide acts as a potent hypocalcemic and hypophosphatemic hormone by increasing renal calcium clearance and reducing bone resorption. However, its precise physiological role in bone metabolism is not yet fully understood. Various forms of CT may be detected in blood samples, including a CT monomer, an oxidized monomer, a dimer, higher molecular weight forms, and possibly precursor of CT. The concentrations of these peptides vary with clinical status, renal function and tissular origin of CT (normal or ectopic production). Medullar thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a malignant tumor, developed from the C-cells, secreting calcitonin in large excess. This disease occurs either as a sporadic (80%) or a familial (20%) form, which is transmitted as an autosomal dominant gene or as a component of multiple endocrine neoplasia (IIb). Moderate hypercalcitoninemia is also observed in pregnancy, pernicious anaemia, renal failure and during the neonatal period. Preferably, monomer form of CT is detected in this assay. The measurement of CT is used for: ¡¤ Diagnosis of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), ¡¤ Follow up of malignant tumors, to check the success of surgery and to monitor for recurrence, ¡¤ Diagnosis of the preclinical cases of the familial forms of MTC (MEN II or Sipple syndrome) by the use of stimulation tests (calcium or pentagastrin), ¡¤ Study of the pathophysiology of the calcium-phosphate and bone metabolism.
