PURPOSE: It has been increasingly suggested that specific microRNAs expression profiles in the circulation and atrial tissue are associated with the susceptibility to atrial fibrillation. Nonetheless, the role of circulating microRNAs in Graves' disease patients with atrial fibrillation has not yet been well described. The objective of the study was to identify the role of circulating microRNAs as specific biomarkers for the diagnosis of Graves' disease with atrial fibrillation. METHODS: The expression profiles of eight serum microRNAs, which are found to be critical in the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation, were determined in patients with Graves' disease with or without atrial fibrillation...

PURPOSE: To retrospectively evaluate the age of onset of MEN1-associated lesions in a group of affected children and adolescents and to compare the clinical features of our series with the evidence derived from the literature. METHODS: The study population consisted of 22 Italian children and adolescents (age 6-31 years at the time of the inclusion in this study) all with a clinical and/or a genetic diagnosis of MEN1 performed before the age of 16 who have been followed-up regularly from 1998 to 2016 at the Regional Referral Center for Hereditary Endocrine Tumors...

PURPOSE: Studies on 1 μg low-dose test showed that among 1 μg cosyntropin samples pushed through long IV plastic tubing, some adrenocorticotropic hormone dosage was not recovered, and in healthy volunteers it provided subnormal cortisol responses. The aim of the current study is to assess whether there is any loss in adrenocorticotropic hormone 1-24 concentration when pushed through a short plastic tube, and to assess serum and salivary cortisol responses in low-dose test among healthy volunteers, using a similar short plastic tube vs...

INTRODUCTION: Juvenile primary hyperparathyroidism is uncommon and more symptomatic than the adult counterpart. The aim of this prospective monocentric study, conducted in a tertiary referral center, was to evaluate the clinical, biochemical, and densitometric data, and the outcome of a series of patients with juvenile primary hyperparathyroidism. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group included 154 patients with sporadic and familial juvenile primary hyperparathyroidism, aged ≤40 years...

PURPOSE: Children from smoking mothers have a higher risk of developing obesity and associated comorbidities later in life. Different experimental models have been used to assess the mechanisms involved with this increased risk. Using a rat model of neonatal nicotine exposure via implantation of osmotic minipumps in lactating dams, we have previously shown marked sexual dimorphisms regarding metabolic and endocrine outcomes in the adult progeny. Considering that more than four thousand substances are found in tobacco smoke besides nicotine, we then studied a rat model of neonatal tobacco smoke exposure: adult male offspring had hyperphagia, obesity, hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, secondary hyperthyroidism and lower adrenal hormones...

PURPOSE: Non-functioning pituitary adenomas are common, and the treatment and follow-up of these patients represent a multidisciplinary challenge. First line treatment is transphenoidal surgery, with debulking or total removal of tumour. A substantial portion of the tumours relapse after surgery, and there is no consensus of how to follow these patients postoperatively. Our aim was to characterize the postoperative growth of non-functioning pituitary adenomas and correlate it to clinical and paraclinical data...

PURPOSE: Metabolic syndrome may predispose to cardiovascular diseases. Since, in recent studies, vitamin D is advocated for cardioprotective roles, this study was designed to investigate the effects of vitamin D supplementation on proatherogenic inflammatory markers and common carotid intima media thickness in subjects with metabolic syndrome. METHODS: This randomized double blind clinical trial was conducted in Tabriz, Iran. Eligible subjects (n = 80) with metabolic syndrome were recruited thorough advertisement and randomized to receive either vitamin D (50,000 IU/week) or matching placebo for 16 weeks...

PURPOSE: Recent studies identified that metabolically abnormal non-obese phenotype is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. However, little is known about risk factor for progression from metabolically healthy non-overweight to metabolically abnormal phenotype. We hypothesized that fatty liver had a clinical impact on progression from metabolically healthy non-overweight to metabolically abnormal phenotype. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, 14,093 Japanese (7557 men and 6736 women), who received the health-checkup program from 2004 to 2012, were enrolled...

PURPOSE: To compare post-biopsy hematoma rates between ultrasound guided-fine needle aspiration and ultrasound guided-core needle biopsy, and to investigate risk factors for post-biopsy hematoma. METHODS: A total of 5304 thyroid nodules which underwent ultrasound guided biopsy were included in this retrospective study. We compared clinical and US features between patients with and without post-biopsy hematoma. Associations between these features and post-biopsy hematoma were analyzed...

PURPOSE: Obestatin and ghrelin are peptides encoded by the preproghrelin gene. Obestatin inhibits food intake, in addition to regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism. Here, we test the ability of obestatin at improving metabolic control and liver function in type 2 diabetic animals (type 2 diabetes mellitus). METHODS: The effects of chronic obestatin treatment of mice with experimentally induced type 2 diabetes mellitus on serum levels of glucose and lipids, and insulin sensitivity are characterized...

PURPOSE: Several new gene mutations have been reported in recent years to be associated with a risk of familial pheochromocytoma. However, it is unclear as to whether extensive genetic testing is required in all patients. METHODS: The clinical data of consecutive patients operated for pheochromocytoma over a decade in a tertiary referral center were reviewed. Genetic screening was performed using a 10-gene panel: RET, VHL, SDHB, SDHD, SDHA, SDHC, SDHAF2, MAX, TMEM127 and FH...

PURPOSE: Levothyroxine supplementation is insufficient for the management of one tenth of patients with hypothyroidism. Iodothyronine deiodinases have been suggested to play a role in residual hypothyroid symptoms of these patients by controlling local thyroid hormone homeostasis. Previous research has suggested a relationship between commonly inherited variations in type 2 iodothyronine deiodinase and impaired well-being. We evaluated the prevalence of iodothyronine deiodinase genotypes and their association with psychological well-being in the Korean hypothyroid population...
