What are Calcimimetics?
Calcimimetics reduce levels of parathyroid hormone and serum calcium. The main regulator of the parathyroid formation and release is calcium-sensing receptors on the cells of the parathyroid gland. Calcimimetics act to increase the sensitivity of the calcium-sensing receptor to extracellular calcium and therefore there is a decrease in parathyroid hormone and a decrease in serum calcium levels.
