A Review of the Pathology, Diagnosis and Management of Colloid Goitre.

Eur Endocrinol 2020 Oct 6;16(2):131-135. Epub 2020 Oct 6.

Department of Radiology, Hue Central Hospital, Hue, Vietnam.

Colloid goitres are a common, benign lesion of the thyroid gland, that involve a diffuse or nodular pattern. An important feature of colloid goitre is the contained colloid material inside and the comet-tail artefacts, which show up on ultrasound. However, some cases of colloid goitre do not show a comet-tail sign and sometimes these artefacts need to be distinguished from microcalcifications in malignant lesions. Read More

Microsomal reductase activity in patients with thyroid neoplasms.

Endocrine 2021 Jun 3;72(3):735-743. Epub 2020 Oct 3.

Inozemtsev City Clinical Hospital of Moscow Department of Health, Moscow, Russia.

Objective: Cytochrome b5-reductase (CYB5R) and cytochrome P450 reductase (CYPOR) are important for cell metabolism; however, their role in thyroid hormonogenesis and carcinogenesis has not been elucidated yet. The activity of CYB5R correlates with the metastasis in breast cancer, but there are no similar studies for CYB5R and CYPOR for thyroid tumors. The aim of this study was to elucidate the activity of CYB5R and CYPOR changes in benign euthyroid and hyperthyroid neoplasms and in papillary thyroid cancer for their potential application as biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis prediction of thyroid cancer.

Mice Hypomorphic for , a Negative Regulator of the Nrf2 Antioxidant Response, Show Age-Dependent Diffuse Goiter with Elevated Thyrotropin Levels.

Thyroid 2021 01 19;31(1):23-35. Epub 2020 Aug 19.

Service of Endocrinology, Diabetology and Metabolism, Lausanne University Hospital, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Familial nontoxic multinodular goiter (MNG) is a rare disease. One of the associated genes is Kelch-like ECH-associated protein 1 (), which encodes the main inhibitor of nuclear factor erythroid 2-related transcription factor 2 (Nrf2), a central mediator of antioxidant responses. The association of with familial MNG is based on only two loss-of-function mutations identified in two families, only one of which included proper phenotyping and adequate demonstration of co-segregation of the phenotype and the mutation.

Therapeutic Effect of Curcumin, a Plant Polyphenol Extracted From Curcuma longae, in Fibroblasts From Patients With Graves' Orbitopathy.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2019 10;60(13):4129-4140

Department of Ophthalmology, Severance Hospital, Institute of Vision Research, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: We examined the therapeutic effect of nontoxic concentrations of curcumin, a plant polyphenol extracted from Curcuma longae, in primary cultures of orbital fibroblasts from Graves' orbitopathy (GO).

Methods: The effect of curcumin on interleukin (IL)-1β induced-proinflammatory cytokine production was determined using quantitative real-time PCR, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and Western blot analysis. Adipogenic differentiation was identified using Oil-Red O staining, and levels of peroxisome proliferator activator γ (PPARγ) and CCAAT-enhancer-binding proteins (C/EBP) α/β were determined by Western blot analyses.

Alteration in the serum concentrations of FGF19, FGFR4 and βKlotho in patients with thyroid cancer.

Cytokine 2018 05 10;105:32-36. Epub 2018 Feb 10.

Department of Immunoendocrinology, Chair of Endocrinology, Medical University of Lodz, Sterlinga 3, 91-425 Lodz, Poland.

Introduction: βKlotho (βKL) is known to act as co-receptor for fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGFR4) which is the main cognate receptor for fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19). Dysregulation of this FGF19/FGFR4/βKL signaling axis has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several cancers. However, its role in the pathogenesis of thyroid cancer has not been determined.
