Identification

Name
Calcitonin porcine
Accession Number
DB13189
Description

Calcitonin is a polypeptide hormone secreted by the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland in mammals. It inhibits bone resorption and lowers both serum and urinary calcium concentrations. Human calcitonin is available only in very small quantities but has been used in some studies. The first commercially available preparation in Britain was porcine calcitonin (brand name Calcitare).

Interactions

Drug Interactions
This information should not be interpreted without the help of a healthcare provider. If you believe you are experiencing an interaction, contact a healthcare provider immediately. The absence of an interaction does not necessarily mean no interactions exist.
DrugInteraction
Alendronic acidThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Alendronic acid.
Clodronic acidThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Clodronic acid.
Etidronic acidThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Etidronic acid.
IbandronateThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Ibandronate.
Lithium carbonateCalcitonin porcine may increase the excretion rate of Lithium carbonate which could result in a lower serum level and potentially a reduction in efficacy.
Lithium citrateCalcitonin porcine may increase the excretion rate of Lithium citrate which could result in a lower serum level and potentially a reduction in efficacy.
Lithium hydroxideCalcitonin porcine may increase the excretion rate of Lithium hydroxide which could result in a lower serum level and potentially a reduction in efficacy.
Pamidronic acidThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Pamidronic acid.
Risedronic acidThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Risedronic acid.
Tiludronic acidThe risk or severity of hypocalcemia can be increased when Calcitonin porcine is combined with Tiludronic acid.
