Endokrinologische Labordiagnostik

  • B. Obermayer-Pietsch


Die Labordiagnostik in der Endokrinologie erweitert sich laufend mit dem Nachweis neuer Hormone, Prohormone und Stoffwechselsubstanzen (z.B. Ghrelin, Cartilaps) und der Verfeinerung spezifischer Methoden zur Analyse von z.B. nicht eiweißgebundenen Fraktionen (z.B. fT3, fT4) oder Subfraktionen von Hormon- und Stoffwechselprodukten (z.B. Parathormon mit unterschiedlicher Moleküllänge und -funktion, Serum-Crosslaps).
