PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Three mAbs targeting immune checkpoint proteins are available for the treatment of patients with melanoma, lung, and kidney cancer, and their use will likely expand in the future to additional tumor types. We here update the literature on the incidence and pathophysiology of endocrine toxicities induced by these agents, and discuss management guidance. RECENT FINDINGS: Immune checkpoint inhibition may trigger autoimmune syndromes involving different organs, including several endocrine glands (pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and endocrine pancreas)...

BACKGROUND: Endocrine and metabolic diseases especially diabetes have become focus areas for public health professionals. Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism (IJEM), a publication of Endocrine Society of India, is a peer-reviewed online journal, which covers technical and clinical studies related to health, ethical and social issues in field of diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism. This bibliometric analysis assesses the journal from a community health perspective. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Every article published in IJEM over a period of 4 years (2011-2014) was accessed to review coverage of community health in the field of endocrinology...

At temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, but chilly air conditioning inside the George R. Brown convention center, Houston was the endocrine capital of America during June 2012, with the ENDO EXPO 2012 meeting calling attendees from all the states and abroad. Endocrinology is a highly varied specialty, ranging from hormonal disturbances of the pituitary (and in fact acromegaly and Cushing's syndrome were among the stars of this year's meeting therapy-wise) to diabetes, female hormonal disorders and endocrine-mediated malignancies, to mention only a few...

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by thrombotic tendency that affects most organ systems in the human body. In this report, we present a review of the endocrinologic manifestations associated with APS by evaluating the medical literature from 1968 to 2009 using MEDLINE and these keywords: APS, antiphospholipid syndrome, antiphospholipid antibodies, anticardiolipin antibodies, lupus anticoagulant, anti β-2 glycoprotein I, pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, parathyroid, ovary, testes, diabetes mellitus, and diabetes insipidus...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery allows stable body weight reduction in morbidly obese patients. In presurgical evaluation, obesity-related co-morbidities must be considered, and a multidisciplinary approach is recommended. Precise guidelines concerning the endocrinological evaluation to be performed before surgery are not available. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of common endocrine diseases in a series of obese patients scheduled for bariatric surgery. METHODS: We examined 783 consecutive obese subjects (174 males and 609 females) aged 18-65 years, who turned to the obesity centre of our department from January 2004 to December 2007 for evaluation before bariatric surgery...

Fatigue is a frequent reason for seeking medical attention. Endocrine dysfunction is a common etiology of fatigue. In fact, thyroid function is usually one of the first explanations on the list of possible diagnoses. The symptoms associated with endocrinopathies are frequently "nonspecific," and psychiatric disease or psychological disorders need to be differentiated. Often, this can be accomplished using biological measures of hormone function, such as measures of thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid, and adrenal hormone levels...

The Society for Endocrinology (BES) held its Annual Conference in Manchester, U.K., on March 15-18, 2010. The meeting was devoted to different areas of endocrinology, such as thyroid diseases, abnormalities in adrenal function, neuroendocrine disorders, bone and parathyroid disorders, diabetes, gonadal abnormalities, growth and development, diseases of pituitary and molecular endocrinology. This report focuses on recent developments in thyroid carcinogenesis, where the potential for novel interventions may exist, and new therapeutic possibilities and advances in the management of diabetes and its complications...

AIM: To review referrals throughout the career of an individual paediatric endocrinologist. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study in metropolitan clinics in Queensland analysed details of all 9062 patients aged<18 years referred between January 1980 and December 2007 to determine the proportion of diagnoses in major disease categories and changes in referral patterns over time. RESULTS: Short stature (29%), type-1 diabetes mellitus (20%) and pubertal disorders (12%) accounted for most cases, with thyroid disorders (7%), obesity (6%), tall stature (5%) and hypothalamic-pituitary disorders (4%) the next commonest...

CONTEXT: There has not been a comprehensive compilation of data regarding the epidemiology of all endocrine and metabolic disorders in the United States. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We included 54 disorders with clinical and public health significance. We identified population-based studies that provided U.S. prevalence and/or incidence data by searching PubMed in December 2007 for English-language reports, hand-searching reference lists of six textbooks of endocrinology, obtaining additional resources from identified experts in each subspecialty, and searching epidemiological databases and web sites of relevant organizations...

Our objective was to study the endocrinologic manifestations of the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). We reviewed the medical literature from 1968 until 2005 using MEDLINE and the key words: APS, anticardiolipin antibodies, lupus anticoagulant, antiphospholipid antibodies, adrenal, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, diabetes, ovaries and testes. Adrenal insufficiency is the most common endocrinologic manifestation and can be the presenting symptom of APS. In patients with autoimmune thyroid disease circulating aPL have been detected...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to define the impact of surgery on pituitary function in a large consecutive series of patients harbouring non-functioning pituitary adenomas. MATERIALS AND METHOD: Between December 1982 and December 2000, a total of 822 patients underwent primary surgery in the authors' department. In 721 cases a complete set of endocrinological data was available. Functions of the pituitary-gonadal, pituitary-thyroid and pituitary-adrenal axes were assessed immediately before surgery and again one week, 3 months and 1 year after the operation, utilizing standardized tests and commercially available assays...
