REVIEW
Jean-Jacques Body, Daniela Niepel, Giuseppe Tonini
CALCIUM METABOLISM IN CANCER AND HYPERCALCAEMIA OF MALIGNANCY: The balance between bone formation and resorption may be disrupted in patients with cancer, leading either to increased bone resorption, calcium release, and possibly hypercalcaemia, or to increased bone formation, sequestration of calcium, and possibly hypocalcaemia. In adults, hypercalcaemia of malignancy is most common in patients with tumours that produce factors that induce osteoclast activation and enhance bone resorption...
