Despite the strong association of hyperparathyroidism with arachidonic acid related lipid signals, little research has been performed over the years. A better understanding of the link between arachidonic acid remodeling, prostaglandin and endocannabinoid production with primary hyperparathyroidism in primary tissue/cells might open up new avenues for biomarker and thus to a potential therapeutic target.

Arachidonic acid remodeling might also have an impact on depression and elevated cytokines in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. The investigators therefore will assess the correlation between postoperative improvement of PHQ-9 and cytokine levels with arachidonic acid remodeling.
