INTRODUCTION: Time-lapse technology allows almost continuous noninvasive assessment of embryonic development. It was shown previously that relative kinetics defining cleavage synchronicity are better predictors of blastocyst quality than absolute time points. This study aims to compare relative kinetics in embryos from patients with and without endometriosis. METHODS: Time-lapse data were collected retrospectively from 596 patients undergoing infertility treatment for in vitro fertilization from January 2011 to July 2016...

BACKGROUND: Among the sex hormones, oestrogen may play a role in colorectal cancer, particularly in conjunction with oestrogen receptor-β (ERβ). The expression of ERβ isoform variants and their correlations with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) syndrome and sporadic colorectal carcinomas are poorly described. METHODS: This study aimed to investigate the expression levels of the ERβ1, ERβ2, ERβ4 and ERβ5 isoform variants using quantitative RT-PCR (921 analyses) in FAP, normal mucosa, adenomatous polyps and sporadic colorectal carcinomas...

Fasting and sepsis induce profound changes in thyroid hormone (TH) central and peripheral metabolism. These changes affect TH action and are called the non-thyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS). To date, it is still debated whether NTIS represents an adaptive response or a real hypothyroid state at the tissue level. Moreover, even though it has been considered the same syndrome, we hypothesized that fasting and sepsis induce a distinct set of changes in thyroid hormone metabolism. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the central and peripheral expression of genes involved in the transport (MCT8/Slc16a2 and MCT10/Slc16a10), metabolism (Dio1, Dio2, and Dio3) and action (Thra and Thrb) of TH during NTIS induced by fasting or sepsis...

PURPOSE: Primary hyperhidrosis (PH) typically involves the craniofacial (CF) or axillary-palmar (AP) region. Our purpose was to determine the safety and efficacy of CT-guided sympatholysis for treating PH. METHODS: In this prospective study, 39 consecutive patients with CF or AP PH were referred for percutaneous sympatholysis. Procedures were performed under CT guidance and minimal sedation. We treated level T2 for CF hyperhidrosis and T2, T3, and T4 for AP hyperhidrosis...

SBP2 (selenocysteine insertion sequence binding protein 2) is an essential factor in selenoprotein synthesis. Patients with SBP2 defects have a characteristic thyroid phenotype and additional manifestations such as growth delay, male infertility, impaired motor coordination and developmental delay. The thyroid phenotype has become pathognomonic for this defect and putative deficiencies in the iodothyronine deiodinases selenoenzymes have been implicated. To investigate the role of SBP2 and selenoproteins in thyroid physiology and answer questions raised by the human syndrome we generated a tamoxifen inducible Sbp2 conditional knockout (iCKO) mouse model...

BACKGROUND: Thyrotropin (TSH) can be increased in humans with primary hypoadrenocorticism (HA) before glucocorticoid treatment. Increase in TSH is a typical finding of primary hypothyroidism and both diseases can occur concurrently (Schmidt's syndrome); therefore, care must be taken in assessing thyroid function in untreated human patients with HA. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate whether alterations in cTSH can be observed in dogs with HA in absence of primary hypothyroidism...

Importance: The incidence of thyroid disease in children with alopecia areata (AA) has been widely studied with no consensus on whether a true association with AA exists. In addition, screening practices for thyroid dysfunction in children with AA vary widely among clinicians. Objective: To reduce health care costs, eliminate unnecessary testing, and standardize clinical practices, we sought to to characterize thyroid function in children with AA to establish guidelines for screening...

There are two genes that express the major thyroid hormone receptor isoforms. Mutations in both these genes have given rise to Resistance to Thyroid Hormone (RTH) syndromes (RTHβ, RTHα) that can have variable phenotypes for mutations of the same receptor isoform as well as between the two receptor isoforms. In general, the relative tissue-specific distribution of TRβ and TRα determine RTH in different tissues for each form of RTH. These differences highlight some of the isoform-specific roles of each TR isoform...

The physio-pathologic interrelationships between endothelium and GvHD have been better elucidated and have led to definition of the entity 'endothelial GvHD' as an essential early phase prior to the clinical presentation of acute GvHD. Using the CellSearch system, we analyzed circulating endothelial cells (CEC) in 90 allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) patients at the following time-points: T1 (pre-conditioning), T2 (pre-transplant), T3 (engraftment), T4 (onset of GvHD) and T5 (1 week after steroid treatment)...

OBJECTIVE: Familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia (FDH) is caused by abnormal human serum albumin (HSA) with an increased thyroxine (T4) affinity leading to euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia. One- and two-step immunoassay of serum samples from FDH patients (e.g., Japanese patients) with the HSA R218P mutation can yield false-positive free thyroxine (FT4) results. Therefore, it is difficult to distinguish FDH from syndrome of inappropriate secretion of thyroid-stimulating hormone (e.g., syndrome of resistance to thyroid hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone [TSH]-producing pituitary adenoma), even when multiple assays are used...

The thyroid gland secretes primarily tetraiodothyronine (T4), and some triiodothyronine (T3). Under normal physiological circumstances, only one-fifth of circulating T3 is directly released by the thyroid, but in states of hyperactivation of thyroid-stimulating hormone receptors (TSHRs), patients develop a syndrome of relative T3 toxicosis. Thyroidal T4 production results from iodination of thyroglobulin (TG) at residues Tyr(5) and Tyr(130), whereas thyroidal T3 production may originate in several different ways...

Transport of thyroid hormone (TH) across the plasma membrane is essential for intracellular TH metabolism and action, and this is mediated by specific transporter proteins. During the last two decades several transporters capable of transporting TH have been identified, including monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8), MCT10 and organic anion transporting polypeptide 1C1 (OATP1C1). In particular MCT8 and OATP1C1 are important for the regulation of local TH activity in the brain and thus for brain development...
