Serial weekly serum samples (for 3 weeks) were obtained from 42 patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC, papillary no.=35, follicular no.=6, Hurthle cell no.=1) for serum thyroid hormone, TSH and TG before and after total thyroidectomy. Serum specimens were also obtained one month after radioiodine (131I) therapy followed by suppressive dose of L-thyroxine (L-T4, 2.5 μg/kg). The patients were subdivided into four groups: group I: the DTC was confined to a single solid nodule (no.=12); g...

Antibodies directed to the TSH receptor (TSHRAbs), detected by TRAb as TSH-binding inhibitory immunoglobulin, and cyclic AMP production by CHO cells expressing human TSH recombinant receptor (CHO-rhTSHR) were determined in 52 patients (36F/16M) with Graves' disease (DGB), both before and at 6 and 12 months of continuous treatment with metimazol (40-60mg/day) associated with L-thyroxine (100mg/day). Another group of 20 patients (12F/8M) was referred for radioiodine (RAI) treatment. The TSHRAbs we...

In obese men, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) as well as total testosterone (TT) levels are decreased. Data concerning serum free testosterone (FT) levels in obese men are discordant. FT levels are decreased in only some morbidly obese men consistent with an impairment of the feedback regulatory mechanism. It has been suggested that a functional decrease of LH pulse amplitude and serum LH levels are reflected in their hypoandrogenism. We have studied two groups of obese men (Group 1: BMI £ 3...

Pendred’s syndrome is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by goiter, impaired iodide organification, and congenital sensorineural deafness. The gene mutated in Pendred’s syndrome, PDS (Pendred’s syndrome gene), was cloned very recently and encodes the putative sulfate transporter pendrin. Pendred’s syndrome may account for up to 10% of the cases with hereditary hearing loss, and pendrin mutations have also been found in a kindred with non-syndromic deafness. In this study, 41 individual...

Serotonin (5-HT) synthesis in neurons is initiated by hydroxylation of the essen tial amino acid tryptophan. Treatments that raise the level of tryptophan in the brain can rapidly alter the rate at which it is converted to 5-HT. This paper compares the effect of 1, 2 and 3 g L-tryptophan administered 1 h before a plated meal on total food intake and carbohy drate and protein consumption in 10 obese subjects (group I) versus a lactose placebo in another 10 obese subjects (group II). The mean ± SD...

We prospectively evaluated the effect of thyrotropin (TSH)-suppressive therapy with levothyroxine (LT4) on the size of a benign, solitary, solid nodule and multinodular goiter in a relatively low iodine intake area. In this study, 101 euthyroid subjects with a benign, solitary, predominantly solid nodule (n = 54) confirmed by biopsy or multinodular goiter (n = 47) received 200 μg of levothyroxine daily as a single morning tablet for 12 months. Thirtyfive receiving no therapy were considered as c...
