Abstract Objective: In intermediate risk DTC (IR-DTC) patients, selective use of radioiodine (131-I) for remnant ablation and/or as adjuvant therapy (RRA) is advocated. The recently suggested post-...

Background: Recently, there has been a trend to reduce the use of radioiodine remnant ablation (RRA) in patients with low-risk (LR) and intermediate-risk (IR) differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). Objectives: The aim of this paper was to evaluate the diagnostic role of whole-body scan (ptWBS) performed after RRA in LR and IR DTC patients. Methods: We analyzed 545 DTC patients treated with total thyroidectomy and RRA in hypothyroidism followed by a ptWBS. Neck ultrasound (US) and serum thyroglobul...

CONTEXT:For many years, total thyroidectomy (TTx) and radioiodine remnant ablation (RRA) represented the initial treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). There is currently much debate surrounding the clinical impact of RRA, particularly in low (LR) and intermediate (IR) risk DTC.OBJECTIVE:To evaluate the role of postoperative High-Sensitive Thyroglobulin on L-thyroxine (LT4-HSTg) and postoperative neck ultrasound (nUS) in risk re-stratification and decision to perform RRA.PATIENTS:505 ...

Background: During the follow-up of differentiated thyroid cancer patients, the presence of thyroglobulin antibodies makes thyroglobulin measurements unreliable. For this reason, thyroglobulin antibodies measurement and the evaluation of their titer trend are also recommended. Objective: We aimed to identify the best method among stimulated thyroglobulin, thyroglobulin antibodies titer trend, neck ultrasound and diagnostic whole body scan for detecting the presence of disease in a group of diffe...

Summary The subclass distribution of thyroglobulin autoantibodies (TgAb) is debated, whereas their epitope pattern is restricted. Radioidine (131I) treatment for Graves' disease (GD) induces a rise in TgAb levels, but it is unknown whether it modifies subclass distribution and epitope pattern of TgAb as well. We collected sera from GD patients before 131I treatment and 3 and 6 months thereafter. We measured total TgAb, TgAb light chains and TgAb subclasses by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (E...

Abstract Abundant experimental evidence demonstrates that endothelial cells are sensitive to flow; however, the effect of fluid pressure or pressure gradients that are used to drive viscous flow is not well understood. There are two principal physical forces exerted on the blood vessel wall by the passage of intra-luminal blood: pressure and shear. To analyze the effects of pressure and shear independently, these two stresses were applied to cultured cells in two different types of bioreactors: ...
