    Abstract: Calcitonins and calcitonin derivatives such as are employed for therapy for, for example, osteoporosis. Paget's disease or hypercalcemia. The calcitonins and calcitonin derivatives are distinguished by a bridging of the amino acids present in the positions 17 and 21. In this case, by means of a suitable choice of the amino acids present in these positions an 18- or 19-membered ring is produced. This ring leads to an increased conformational stability and to an increased activity of the modified calcitonin. A particularly suitable hCt (human Ct) analog is the cyclo17,21-[Asp17, Orn21]-hCt according to the invention having a 19-membered ring structure between the lactam-bridged Asp17 and Orn21.

  • Patent number: 4837380
    Abstract: A liposome-entrapped calcitonin composition and method of use is disclosed. The composition when parenterally administerd to a host mammal, produces an enhanced and prolonged hypocalcemic effect in said mammal and thus is useful in treating diseases related to abnormal skeletal metabolism. The liposomes are substantially free of cholesterol and may be single or multilamellar.
