Purpose Perfluorinated chemicals are widespread pollutants persistent in the environment with links to some major health issues. The two main compounds, perfluoro-octanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluoro-alkyl sulphonate (PFOS), were recently classified as carcinogenetic and thus their use has been restricted. Short-chain PFCs were recently developed as an alternative, but no data regarding the possible endocrine toxicities of these compounds are available. Aim of this study was to investigate whether...

Continued low-dose MMI treatment for longer than 12–18 months may be considered in patients not in remission. However, ATDs are not free from adverse effects. We undertook a systematic review to clarify safety of long-term ATD treatment. Medline and the Cochrane Library for trials published between 1950 and Nov 2018 were systematically searched. We included original studies containing data for long-term (> 18 months) ATD treatment. Two reviewers independently extracted data from included trials ...
Purpose The aim was to find whether the presence of Hurthle cells (HC) in a smear influences the categorization of FNA results or the risk of malignancy (RoM) of particular categories of cytological diagnosis.
Purpose The endocrine surgeon and the endocrinologist should standardize how they deal with patients with an indication for thyroidectomy, as the road to surgery starts well before the operation itself. The patient should be thoroughly informed about where and how surgery will be performed, the postoperative improvements that can be expected, and the possibility and incidence of relevant complications. This short review aims at identifying the most common postoperative issues after thyroidectomy...

Introduction A new class of drugs in the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) includes two agents: lumacaftor, which corrects CFTR channel protein, and ivacaftor, which increases CFTR channel activity. In our previous study we recruited 50 stable adults with CF and 16 of them showed growth hormone deficit (GHD): 7 patients severe and 9 patients partial GHD.

Purpose One of the best indicators of adrenal gland dysfunction is the level of free cortisol measured in the 24-h urine (UFC) which faithfully reflects the level of biologically active serum cortisol not subjected to circadian variations. Liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS–MS) is a sensitive, accurate and precise method recently available in routine laboratories that could remedy interference problems of immunoassays.

Introduction Vitamin D is classically involved in maintaining bone and mineral health, but it has been shown to exert many extraskeletal functions, including pleiotropic effects on cardiovascular system.

Purpose Parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations are routinely measured in the diagnosis and management of bone and kidney diseases, but reference ranges can be overestimated if determined in otherwise healthy individuals for whom vitamin D deficiency was not evaluated. We establish PTH reference ranges in apparently healthy, normocalcemic, normophosphatemic individuals categorized by 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) status using the Elecsys® PTH (cobas e 601) and Elecsys® Vitamin D total II electr...
