Division of Nephrology and Kidney Research Institute, Department of Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 79:429-36. 2013..Impaired arterial function is a potential mechanism for these associations. We tested whether serum PTH concentration is associated with measures of arterial function...

Department of Medicine, Kidney Research Institute, University of Washington, Seattle 98104, USA
JAMA 310:179-88. 2013..This association has not been rigorously evaluated in other races or ethnicities, in which the distributions of 25(OH)D concentration and possibly other aspects of 25(OH)D metabolism differ...
