During pregnancy thyroid hormones have profound effects on embryonal/fetal development and maternal health. Therefore, thyroid gland disorders should be immediately diagnosed and adequately treated. Pregnancy-specific physiological alterations during pregnancy cause changes in the reference interval for thyroid-stimulating hormone levels and trimester-specific thresholds must be taken into account. This article summarizes the most important diagnostic and therapeutic aspects before, during and after pregnancy...

Graves´ disease is an autoimmune disorder, which is characterized by stimulatory antibodies targeting the human thyrotropin receptor (TSHR), resulting in hyperthyroidism and multiple organ damage. The disease can be modelled in mice using adenoviral immunizations with the extracellular A subunit of the TSHR, which induces a long-term stable disease state. TSHR binding cAMP-stimulatory antibodies, thyroid enlargement, elevated serum thyroxin levels, tachycardia, cardiac hypertrophy and orbitopathy are observed in these Ad-TSHR-immunized mice...

A low pepsinogen (PG) I/II ratio can be used to detect atrophic gastritis (AG). Recent research has found that the PG I/II ratio is associated with several nutritional and metabolic disorders. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between the PG I/II ratio and biochemical markers in a Chinese population.In total, 1896 participants in a gastric cancer screening program underwent a health screening test that included assessment of serum pepsinogens. Subjects with PG I/II < 3.0 were considered as having atrophic gastritis...

Introduction: Thyroid dysfunction is among the most common autoimmune disorders in women of reproductive age. Previous studies have shown the association between autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) and infertility. Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is secreted by granulosa cells and is a useful marker for assessment of ovarian reserve. In the present study, we sought to evaluate the ovarian reserves of women with autoimmune thyroid disorder by measurement of AMH values. Material and methods: This prospective study included women with newly diagnosed AITD aged between 20 and 40 years...

Differentiated thyroid cancer is the most common malignant carcinoma in female population.Postoperative long-term thyroid-stimulating hormone(TSH) suppression therapy can reduce the risk of recurrence for differentiated thyroid cancer and control the progress of the disease, but it also induces simultaneously subclinical hypothyroidism and imposes negative effect on female. In addition to cardiovascular disease, TSH suppression therapy can lead to the alteration of sex hormone metabolism, menstrual disorder, poor influence on pregnancy and osteoporosis...

While thyroid cancer risks from exposure to ionizing radiation early in life are well characterized quantitatively, the association of radiation with nonmalignant, functional thyroid disorders has been less studied. Here, we report on a risk analysis study of hypothyroidism with radiation dose to the thyroid gland and the hypothalamic-pituitary axis among survivors of childhood cancer. Utilizing data from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study, a cohort of 14,364 five-year survivors of childhood cancer diagnosed at 26 hospitals in the U...

EphA5 and its ligand ephrin-A5 interaction can trigger synaptogenesis during early hippocampus development. We have previously reported that abnormal EphA5 expression can result in synaptogenesis disorder in congenital hypothyroidism (CH) rats. To better understand its precise molecular mechanism, we further analyzed the characteristics of ephrin-A5 expression in the hippocampus of CH rats. Our study revealed that ephrin-A5 expression was downregulated by thyroid hormone deficiency in the developing hippocampus and hippocampal neurons in rats...

Thyroid hormone synthesis requires the presence of iodide. The sodium iodide symporter (NIS) is a glycoprotein which mediates the active uptake of iodide from the blood stream into the thyroid grand. NIS defects due to SLC5A5 gene mutations are known to cause congenital hypothyroidism (CH). The proposita is a 28-year-old female whose origin is the North Sudan where neonatal screening for CH is not available. She presented with severe constipation and a goiter at the age of 40 days. Laboratory testing confirmed CH and she was started on levothyroxine (L-T4)...

BACKGROUND: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a unique role in posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression and control different aspects of skin development, homeostasis and disease. Although it is generally accepted that thyroid hormones signaling is important in skin pathophysiology, the role of their nuclear receptors (TRs) in cutaneous miRNA expression has yet to be explored. METHODS: We have used RNAseq to compare the skin miRnome of wild-type mice and genetically modified mice lacking both TRα1 and TRβ, the main thyroid hormone binding isoforms...

BACKGROUND: Mutations in the SLC26A4 gene are associated with Pendred syndrome and autosomal recessive non-syndromic deafness (DFNB4). Both disorders have similar audiologic characteristics: bilateral hearing loss, often severe or profound, which may be associated with abnormalities of the inner ear, such as dilatation of the vestibular aqueduct or Mondini dysplasia. But, in Pendred syndrome (OMIM #274600), with autosomal recessive inheritance, besides congenital sensorineural deafness, goiter or thyroid dysfunctions are frequently present...

Neonatal hyperthyroidism is rare disorder due to the passage of thyroid receptor antibodies (TRBs) from the mother to the fetus. Neonatal thyrotoxicosis can present in several ways and if unrecognized, can be fatal. We present a preterm neonate who developed fetal hydrops and tricuspid regurgitation in utero. The mother had a history of treated Grave's disease. The infant responded to maternal treatment antenatally and postnatal anti-thyroid treatment, with resolution of both the tricuspid regurgitation and hydrops...
