Term Description

Calcitonin is a sensitive tumor marker of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). Patients with MTC have usually very high levels of serum calcitonin that can be used to diagnose the disease. To improve diagnostic sensitivity in family members with small MTCs, or to evaluate postoperative biochemical cure status, measurement of calcitonin stimulated with combined intravenous calcium gluconate and pentagastrin (calcitonin challenge) has been widely adopted.

Part Description

LP14649-5   Calcitonin
Calcitonin is a 32 amino acid polypeptide hormone that is produced in humans by the C cells of the thyroid. It acts to decrease the formation and absorptive activity of osteoclasts. Its calcium regulating roles is greater in children and in certain diseases than in normal adults. Calcitonin testing detects medullary carcinoma of thyroid gland, and evaluates calcium metabolism. Concentrations of calcitonin in plasma rise in patients with C cell tumors, and in some patieints with cancer of lung, breast and pancreas. It also rises in chronic renal failure, pernicious anemia, pregnancy at term and is higher in newborns. Source: Regenstrief Institute
