OBJECTIVES: Patients with non-thyroidal illness syndrome have many abnormalities in thyroid hormone tests. Such patients have medical comorbidities associated with low serum proteins and are on multiple medications that interfere with thyroid hormone measurement by immunoassay platforms. It is unknown if these thyroid hormone measurements reflect physiologic conditions or if they are artifacts of testing methodology. METHODS: Fifty patients were selected from the intensive care unit (ICU) from our institution...

We sought to determine, with a retrospective chart review, the imaging yield for patients with clinically isolated Horner syndrome. MRI/MRA of the head and neck extending from the supraorbital ridge to T4 with fat suppression and with postcontrast images was obtained. Of 88 patients with isolated Horner syndrome who were imaged, 20% had a causative etiology on imaging. The most common cause of an isolated Horner syndrome was a carotid artery dissection. There was 1 patient with a primary malignancy found to be the causative lesion in this group, and 1 patient with spread of their known metastatic disease...

Resistance to thyroid hormone syndrome (RTH) is a rare disorder and is usually inherited as dominantly negative autosomal trait. RTH is caused by mutations in the thyroid hormone receptor beta. Patients with RTH usually do not have signs and symptoms of thyrotoxicosis, but the thyroid function test shows an elevated T3 and T4, which get misinterpreted as hyperthyroidism, resulting in unnecessary treatment.

AIMS: Altered thyroid hormone metabolism characterized by a low triiodothyronine (T3), so-called low-T3 syndrome, is a common finding in patients with severe systemic diseases. Additionally, subclinical thyroid dysfunction, defined as abnormal thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and normal thyroxine (T4), causes left ventricular dysfunction. Our objective was to identify the prevalence and prognostic impact of low-T3 syndrome and subclinical thyroid dysfunction in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF)...

T4 syndrome has existed as a clinical concept for more than three decades and it has been identified as a source of upper extremity (UE) symptoms. This case report explores the clinical reasoning in the diagnoses and management of a patient with symptoms consistent with T4-type syndrome and critically discusses the concept of T4 syndrome using recent research to help explain the clinical presentation. Manual therapy treatment focused on stimulation of the sympathetic ganglia, decreasing local upper thoracic pain and UE referral pattern noted during passive examination...

Thyroid hormone abnormalities are common in critically ill patients. For over three decades, a mild form of these abnormalities has been described in patients with several diseases under outpatient care. These alterations in thyroid hormone economy are a part of the nonthyroidal illness and keep an important relationship with prognosis in most cases. The main feature of this syndrome is a fall in free triiodothyronine (T3) levels with normal thyrotropin (TSH). Free thyroxin (T4) and reverse T3 levels vary according to the underlying disease...

Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is an extremely rare dominantly inherited condition of impaired tissue responsiveness to thyroid hormone (TH). Most patients with RTH have mutations in the gene that encodes the β isoform of the receptor of thyroid hormone (THR-β gene). Mutant receptors are unable to activate or repress target genes. The majority of them are asymptomatic or rarely have hypo- or hyperthyroidism. RTH is suspected by the finding of persistent elevation of serum levels of free T3 (FT3) and free T4 (FT4) and nonsuppressed TSH...

BACKGROUND: Altered recruitment of rotator cuff and scapulothoracic muscles has been identified in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome. To date, however, the cause-consequence relationship between pain and altered muscle recruitment has not been fully unraveled. METHODS: The effect of experimental shoulder pain induced by injection of hypertonic saline in the supraspinatus on the activity of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, trapezius, and serratus anterior activity was investigated during the performance of an elevation task by use of muscle functional magnetic resonance imaging in 25 healthy individuals...

Since it emerged in Brazil in May 2015, the mosquito-borne Zika virus (ZIKV) has raised global concern due to its association with a significant rise in the number of infants born with microcephaly and neurological disorders such as Guillain-Barré syndrome. We developed prototype subunit and adenoviral-based Zika vaccines encoding the extracellular portion of the ZIKV envelope gene (E) fused to the T4 fibritin foldon trimerization domain (Efl). The subunit vaccine was delivered intradermally through carboxymethyl cellulose microneedle array (MNA)...

BACKGROUND: Low T3 which is defined as decreased triiodothyronine (T3) and normal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroxin (T4) levels is present in many acute diseases and is related to increased mortality. We studied low T3 level's relation to long-term mortality in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) patients. METHODS: T3, T4, and TSH levels of consecutive NSTE-ACS patients were measured. Patients with normal T4 and TSH levels, but low T3 level were defined as low T3 group...

The radioprotective capacity of a rationally-designed Mn2+-decapeptide complex (MDP), based on Mn antioxidants in the bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans, was investigated in a mouse model of radiation injury. MDP was previously reported to be extraordinarily radioprotective of proteins in the setting of vaccine development. The peptide-component (DEHGTAVMLK) of MDP applied here was selected from a group of synthetic peptides screened in vitro for their ability to protect cultured human cells and purified enzymes from extreme damage caused by ionizing radiation (IR)...

It has been proven that either excess or deficiency of thyroid hormones has harmful influence on the cardiovascular system function. On the other hand, severe systemic conditions like myocardial infarction or severe heart failure may affect thyroid hormones secretion and their peripheral conversion, leading to low T3 syndrome. Amongst many mechanisms causing T4 to T3 conversion disturbances, important role plays decreased activity of D1 deiodinase and increased activity of D3 deiodinase. The animal research confirmed that thyroid hormones influence cardiomiocytes phenotype and morphology...
