BACKGROUND: TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK), its receptor fibroblast growth factor-inducible 14 (Fn14) and its scavenger receptor CD163 (sCD163) have known associations with many autoimmune diseases. However, the role of the TWEAK axis in autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) remains unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the role of the TWEAK-Fn14 axis in the pathogenesis of AITD. METHODS: Serum levels of soluble TWEAK (sTWEAK) and sCD163 were measured in 38 patients with Graves' disease (GD), 40 patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT), and 40 healthy controls (HCs)...

BACKGROUND: Severe iodine deficiency during pregnancy results in neurodevelopmental disorders in children, while the consequences of mild to moderate iodine deficiency (MMID) are uncertain. The concentration of iodine in the thyroid is the most accurate indicator of iodine nutrition. This study aimed to evaluate whether the iodine stores in the thyroid cover the needs of the mother and the fetus in iodine-sufficient and MMID conditions by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry. METHODS: One hundred four-week-old female Wistar rats were randomly divided into MMID (low iodine intake [L]) and normal (normal iodine intake [N]) groups...

Only a few epidemiological studies have focused on the correlation between prenatal exposure to polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and infant birth outcomes (IBO), and the results of these epidemiological studies are contradictory. The objective of this study was to assess the correlation between prenatal exposure to PBDEs (PEP) and IBO (i.e., birth weight) in an analysis of epidemiological studies and an experimental animals study. We searched databases of the medical literature (PubMed, Excerpta Medica Database, Cochrane Library, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure) for articles and pooled the results of the included epidemiological studies...

Papillary thyroid cancer is a common endocrine malignancy. Although p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) is involved in the development of different types of tumor, its function has not been investigated in papillary thyroid cancer. Here, we identified a role for PAK4 in papillary thyroid cancer progression. Levels of PAK4 and PAK4 phosphorylated at serine 474 correlated significantly with tumor size and TNM stage. Furthermore, stable knockdown of PAK4 retarded cellular proliferation, migration, and invasion. Moreover, thyroid stimulating hormone-induced cellular proliferation in papillary thyroid cancer was found to be dependent on TSHR/cAMP/PKA/PAK4 signaling, with levels of phosphorylated PAK4 correlating positively with serum thyroid stimulating hormone and PKA Cα levels in patients with papillary thyroid cancer...

BACKGROUND: A self-sequential longitudinal reference interval may be expected to minimize the inter-individual variation of thyroid function. Comparison between the self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) and cross-sectional reference interval (CSRI) in pregnancy has not been well investigated. The objectives of this study were to establish a stringent SLRI of thyroid function in pregnant women and to compare it with the conventional CSRI. METHODS: Three cohorts were enrolled: group 1, pregnant women for an SLRI (n = 99); group 2, pregnant women for a CSRI (n = 1318); group 3, non-pregnant control women (NC) as a control group (n = 301) according to the criteria of the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry...

As a newly emerging metabolic regulator, accumulating evidence suggests that the circulating fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19) level correlated with lipid and glucose metabolism. Several independent groups have found that FGF19 was highly likely associated with multiple metabolic disorders. Thyroid dysfunction is believed to be associated with metabolism diseases. However, to date, few studies have investigated the role of FGF19 in patients with thyroid dysfunctions. For this purpose, a cross-sectional study was done to estimate the role of FGF19 in patients with different thyroid functions...

Iodine deficiency (ID) during early pregnancy had an adverse effect on children's psychomotor and motor function. It is worth noting that maternal marginal ID tends to be a common public health problem. Whether marginal ID potentially had adverse effects on the development of cerebellum and the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Therefore, our aim was to study the effects of marginal ID on the dendritic growth in filial cerebellar Purkinje cells (PCs) and the underlying mechanism. In the present study, we established Wistar rat models by feeding dam rats with a diet deficient in iodine and deionized water supplemented with potassium iodide...
