The effect of caffeine on the secretion of immunoreactive parathyroid hormone (PTH) (35-84 amino acids) by sheep brain tissue (cortex, brain stem, cerebellum and basal ganglia) in vitro was investigated
Application of caffeine resulted in an increase of PTH levels in incubation media. The highest increase was observed in basal ganglia and brain stem, followed by cortex and cerebellum The PTH increase may be related, at least at part, to many caffeine effects.
