This short review aims to assess the application of basic quality assurance (QA) principles in published thyroid hormone bioanalytical methods using mass spectrometry (MS). The use of tandem MS, in particular linked to liquid chromatography has become an essential bioanalytical tool for the thyroid hormone research community. Although basic research laboratories do not usually work within the constraints of a quality management system and regulated environment, all of the reviewed publications, to a lesser or greater extent, document the application of QA principles to the MS methods described...

E Álvarez, Y Madrid, M D Marazuela
This paper describes a novel method based on liquid chromatography quadrupole time-of-flight-mass spectrometry (LC-QTOF-MS) for target analysis of total THs in serum. Several sample preparation strategies have been evaluated to reduce matrix effect (namely, HybridSPE cartridges, supported liquid extraction, SLE and solid phase extraction, SPE). Deproteinization and further clean-up with mixed-mode SPE was selected as the best strategy for sample preparation, since achieved the cleanest extracts and reduced ionization suppression effects (between -11 and -24%)...

Untargeted metabolomic profiling has been widely used in recent years. However, the low reproducibility of the data-dependent acquisition (DDA) strategy presents a major bottleneck that considerably limits the reliability of metabolomic studies in biological and clinical research. The data-independent acquisition (DIA) strategy is proposed to solve the above-mentioned problem, and it is gaining popularity. This paper presents a novel approach for performing metabolomic analysis using an untargeted, liquid chromatography-data independent-mass spectrometry (LC-DIA-MS) strategy on a quadrupole-Orbitrap platform...

OBJECTIVE: Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a neurodegenerative and inflammatory demyelination disorder, and oxidative stress is concerned with the pathogenesis of the disease. Also, we found that thyroid hormone level is correlated to the oxidative and antioxidant status in previous studies. Our study was aimed to find the possible relationship between the frequency and severity of GBS and thyroid hormone levels. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We measured serum levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxine (FT4) and free triiodothyronine (FT3) in 238 individuals, including 90 GBS, 44 multiple sclerosis and 104 healthy controls...

The structural elucidation of unknown pharmaceutical impurities plays an important role in the quality control of newly developed and well-established active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) monograph for the API Levothyroxine Sodium, a synthetic thyroid hormone, features two high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) methods using UV-VIS absorption detection to determine organic impurities in the drug substance. The impurity profile of the first USP method ("Procedure 1") has already been extensively studied, however for the second method ("Procedure 2"), which exhibits a significantly different impurity profile, no wholistic structural elucidation of impurities has been performed yet...

Several studies have reported the association between MAPK signaling pathway gene polymorphisms and papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). KRAS gene, an oncogene from the mammalian RAS gene family plays an important role in the MAPK pathway. This study aimed to identify the potential association of KRAS gene polymorphisms with susceptibility to PTC in a Han Chinese population. A total of 861 patients with PTC, 562 disease controls with nodular goiter and 897 healthy controls were recruited. Four tagSNP polymorphisms (rs12427141, rs712, rs7315339 and rs7960917) of KRAS gene were genotyped by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS)...

The current study proposes the successful use of a mass spectrometry-imaging technology that explores the composition of biomolecules and their spatial distribution directly on-tissue to differentially classify benign and malignant cases, as well as different histotypes. To identify new specific markers, we investigated with this technology a wide histological Tissue Microarray (TMA)-based thyroid lesion series. Results showed specific protein signatures for malignant and benign specimens and allowed to build clusters comprising several proteins with discriminant capabilities...

More than 80% of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients suffer from fatigue. Despite this, there are few therapeutic options and evidence-based pharmacological treatments are lacking. The associated societal burden is substantial (MS fatigue is a major reason for part-time employment or early retirement), and at least one out of four MS patients view fatigue as the most burdensome symptom of their disease. The mechanisms underlying MS-related fatigue are poorly understood, and objective criteria for distinguishing and evaluating levels of fatigue and tiredness have not yet been developed...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The nonrecurrent laryngeal nerve (NRLN) is a common anatomic variation of the right recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN), which has been associated with an increased risk of injury during thyroid and parathyroid surgery. We suggest that early successful identification using intraoperative nerve monitoring (IONM) and preservation of this variant will help the surgeon to avoid injury to this nerve. Our objective was to examine the electrophysiological parameters of the NRLN and the efficacy of IONM for successful identification of the NRLN...

The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), also known as human herpesvirus 4, is a member of the Herpesviridae virus family. EBV infection can cause infectious mononucleosis (IM) in the lytic phase of EBV's life cycle. Past EBV infection is associated with lymphomas, and may also result in certain allergic and autoimmune diseases. Although potential mechanisms of autoimmune diseases have not been clearly elucidated, both genetic and environmental factors, such as infectious agents, are considered to be responsible for their development...

Radiation-induced salivary gland dysfunction is the most frequent side-effect of I-131 thyroid therapy. Here, a novel saliva sampling method with ordinary chewing gums administered to the patients at appropriate time intervals post-treatment (TIPT) was used to relate this effect to chewing gum saliva activity (CGSA) content. Saliva samples were acquired after the oral administration of prescribed I-131 activity (radioactivity administered [RA]) to 19 differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) and 16 hyperthyroidism patients of the radioisotope unit (RIU) during 2014 and 2015...

Classical understanding of the function of the pharyngeal plexus in humans is that it relies on both motor branches for innervation of the majority of pharyngeal muscles and sensory branches for the pharyngeal wall sensation. To date there has been no reported data on the role of the pharyngeal plexus in vocal cord innervation. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether or not the plexus pharyngeus contributes to the innervation of the vocal cords. One hundred twenty-five sides from 79 patients (59 female, 20 male) undergoing thyroid surgery with intraoperative neuromonitoring were prospectively evaluated...

Ambient ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) has been increasingly used to investigate the molecular distribution of biological tissue samples. Here, we report the integration and optimization of desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) and liquid-microjunction surface sampling probe (LMJ-SSP) with a chip-based high-field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry (FAIMS) device to image metabolites, lipids, and proteins in biological tissue samples. Optimized FAIMS parameters for specific molecular classes enabled semitargeted detection of multiply charged molecular species at enhanced signal-to-noise ratios (S/N), improved visualization of spatial distributions, and, most importantly, allowed detection of species which were unseen by ambient ionization MSI alone...

Hypothyroidism is a very common disorder worldwide, for which the usual treatment is monotherapy with levothyroxine (L-T4). However, a number of patients treated with L-T4 continue to report symptoms of hypothyroidism despite seemingly normal levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free-T3 (FT3) and free-T4 (FT4) measured by immunoassay. This review summarizes the limitations of the immunoassays commonly used to measure thyroid hormone levels and emphasizes the advantages of the role of liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS)...
