Department of Health Sciences, Ribeirão Preto Medical School - FMRP/USP - Laboratory of Nutrigenomic Studies, University of São Paulo, Av Bandeirantes, 3900, Monte Alegre, Ribeirão Preto, SP, CEP: 14049-900, Brazil.

Human biological system provides innumerable neuroendocrine inputs for food intake control, with effects on appetite's modulation and the satiety signs. Its regulation is very complex, engaging several molecular interactions with many tissues, hormones, and neural circuits. Thus, signaling molecules that control food intake are critical for normal energy homeostasis and a deregulation of these pathways can lead to eating disorders and obesity. Read More

Associations between atherosclerosis and neurological diseases, beyond ischemia-induced cerebral damage.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Department of Medical Sciences, Division of Health Sciences, Campus León, University of Guanajuato, León, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Neurodegeneration is traditionally viewed as a consequence of peptide accumulation in the brain, stroke and/or cerebral ischemia. Nonetheless, a number of scattered observations suggest that neurological disease and atherosclerosis may be linked by more complex mechanisms. Understanding the intricate link between atherosclerosis and neurological conditions may have a significant impact on the quality of life of the growing ageing population and of high cardiovascular risk groups in general.

Role of epigenomic mechanisms in the onset and management of insulin resistance.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Epigenomics in Endocrinology and Nutrition group, Instituto de Investigacion Sanitaria (IDIS), Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Santiago (CHUS/SERGAS), C/ Choupana, s/n, 15706, Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

The prevalence of insulin resistance (IR) is increasing rapidly worldwide and it is a relevant health problem because it is associated with several diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and cancer. Understanding the mechanisms involved in IR onset and progression will open new avenues for identifying biomarkers for preventing and treating IR and its co-diseases. Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation are important factors that mediate the environmental effect in the genome by regulating gene expression and consequently its effect on the phenotype and the development of disease.

Differential activity of the corticosteroidogenic enzymes in normal cycling women and women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2019 Feb 23. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Tropical Institute of Reproductive Medicine, Cuiabá, MT, Brazil.

The phenotypic complex of patients with definitive diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome may include patients with normal and high serum androgen levels. Patients with hyperandrogenemia seem to present higher risk of changes to the glucose and lipid metabolism and, eventually, of earlier development of cardiovascular diseases than normoandrogenemic patients or healthy women. From a laboratory and clinical point of view, it is important to check androgen levels in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome. Read More

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 12;19(4):363-395

Institute of Diabetes ''Gerhardt Katsch'', Karlsburg, Germany.

The immune system is closely intertwined with the endocrine system. Many effects of medications used for various clinical endocrine conditions such as the metabolic syndrome, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, Graves' disease and others also have an impact on the immune system. Some drugs including statins, metformin, angiotensin converting enzyme and proprotein-convertase-subtilisin-kexin type-9 (PCSK9) inhibitors and sex hormones are known to have immunomodulatory properties.

Myo-inositol in autoimmune thyroiditis, and hypothyroidism.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 12;19(4):349-354

Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Pisa, School of Medicine, Via Savi, 10, I-56126, Pisa, Italy.

Myo-inositol (Myo-Ins) plays an important role in thyroid function and autoimmunity. Myo-Ins is the precursor for the synthesis of phosphoinositides, which takes part in the phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) signal transduction pathway, and plays a decisive role in several cellular processes. In the thyroid cells, PtdIns is involved in the intracellular thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) signaling, via Phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate (PtdIns(3,4,5)P3) (PIP-3). Read More

Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Pisa, School of Medicine, Via Savi, 10, I-56126, Pisa, Italy.

Patients affected by autoimmune thyroiditis reached positive effects on indices of thyroid autoimmunity and/or thyroidal function, after following a treatment with selenomethionine (Se) alone, or Se in combination with Myo-inositol (Myo-Ins). Our purpose was to investigate if Myo-Ins alone, or a combination of Se + Myo-Ins, is effective in protecting thyroid cells from the effects given by cytokines, or hydrogen peroxide (HO). We assessed the interferon (IFN)-γ-inducible protein 10 (IP-10/CXCL10) secretion by stimulating primary thyrocytes (obtained from Hashimoto's thyroiditis or from control patients) with cytokines in presence/absence of HO Our results confirm: 1) the toxic effect of HO in primary thyrocytes that leads to an increase of the apoptosis, to a decrease of the proliferation, and to a slight reduction of cytokines-induced CXCL10 secretion; 2) the secretion of CXCL10 chemokine induced by IFN-γ + tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF)-α has been decreased by Myo + Ins, both in presence or absence of HO; 3) no effect has been shown by the treatment with Se.

Endocrine disorders associated with hepatitis C virus chronic infection.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 12;19(4):397-403

Rheumatology Unit, Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria di Modena, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy.

The term "HCV syndrome" encompasses several organ- and systemic pathophysiological states, which often recognize autoimmunity or neoplastic evolution in their pathophysiology, as well as chronic HCV infection as trigger. The clinical features of HCV patients are heterogenous, and may include endocrine or metabolic disorders, namely autoimmune thyroiditis, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and erectile/sexual dysfunctions. In this review, we summarize current knowledge on the endocrine/metabolic diseases associated with chronic HCV infection, focusing on the main concepts emerged in the recent literature in this field.

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) comprise a complex and highly heterogeneous group of neoplasms that can arise all over the body, originating from neuroendocrine cells. NETs are characterized by a general lack of symptoms until they are in advanced phase, and early biomarkers are not as available and useful as required. Heterogeneity is an intrinsic, pivotal feature of NETs that derives from diverse causes and ultimately shapes tumor fate. Read More

The incidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) increases with age. Lately, the diagnosis of NET was mainly caused by early detection of small NET (<1 cm) in the rectum and stomach, which are depicted by chance during routine and prophylactic endoscopy. Also in patients with large and metastatic pancreatic and intestinal tumors thorough pathologic investigation with use of different immunohistologic markers discovers more neuroendocrine tumors with low differentiation grade (G2-G3) and more neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC), nowadays, than in former times.

Immune checkpoint inhibitors are drugs that inhibit the "checkpoint molecules". Different types of cancer immune checkpoint inhibitors have been approved recently: CTLA-4 monoclonal antibodies (as ipilimumab); anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies (as pembrolizumab and nivolumab); and anti-PD-L1 monoclonal antibodies (as atezolizumab, avelumab, and durmalumab). The increased immune response induced by these agents leads to immune-related adverse events (irAEs), that can vary from mild to fatal, according to the organ system and severity. Read More

Transgender medicine - puberty suppression.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 09;19(3):221-225

Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Endocrinology, Emory University, 2nd floor, rm 456, 2015 Uppergate Drive NE, Atlanta, GA, 30322, USA.

Puberty suppression is the reversible first step of endocrine medical treatment in transgender youth, and allows for two very important aspects of transgender management. Firstly, it buys the patient, family and their medical team time to fully evaluate the presence and persistence of gender dysphoria. Secondly, it successfully prevents the development of cis-gender unwanted secondary sexual characteristics. Read More

Center for Andrology and Division of Endocrinology, Medical Faculty Associates, The George Washington University, 2300 M St NW, Washington, DC, 20037, USA.

This review examines the relationship between exogenous sex steroids and cardiovascular events and surrogate markers in trans (transgender) people. Data from trans populations is compared to data from postmenopausal women and hypogonadal men when appropriate. In an age-adjusted comparison with cisgender people, trans people appear to have an increased risk for myocardial infarction and death due to cardiovascular disease. Read More

Approach to the interpretation of unexpected laboratory results arising in the care of patients with inborn errors of metabolism (IEM).

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 03;19(1):5-12

McMaster Health Sciences Centre, Hamilton, ON, Canada.

Endocrinologists may encounter abnormal results in routine laboratory tests while caring for patients with inborn errors of metabolism. This article provides a framework for understanding these abnormalities as: a) part of the pathophysiology of the exceptional disease, b) exceptional laboratory errors related to the exceptional disease, or c) routine laboratory errors to which any patient sample is susceptible.

An overview of inborn errors of metabolism manifesting with primary adrenal insufficiency.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 03;19(1):53-67

Section on Endocrinology & Genetics, The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Building 10, CRC, Room 1-3330, 10 Center Dr., MSC1103, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

Primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) results from an inability to produce adequate amounts of steroid hormones from the adrenal cortex. The most common causes of PAI are autoimmune adrenalitis (Addison's disease), infectious diseases, adrenalectomy, neoplasia, medications, and various rare genetic syndromes and inborn errors of metabolism that typically present in childhood although late-onset presentations are becoming increasingly recognized. The prevalence of PAI in Western countries is approximately 140 cases per million, with an incidence of 4 per 1,000,000 per year. Read More

Thyroid diseases and skin autoimmunity.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 12;19(4):311-323

Department of Surgical Sciences, "Sapienza" University of Rome, Viale Regina Elena, 324, 00161, Rome, Italy.

The skin is the largest organ of the body, at the boundary with the outside environment. Primarily, it provides a physical and chemical barrier against external insults, but it can act also as immune organ because it contains a whole host of immune-competent cells of both the innate and the adaptive immune systems, which cooperate in eliminating invading pathogens following tissue injury. On the other hand, improper skin immune responses lead to autoimmune skin diseases (AISD), such as pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, vitiligo, and alopecia. Read More

Disorders of mitochondrial long-chain fatty acid oxidation and the carnitine shuttle.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 03;19(1):93-106

Dutch Fatty Acid Oxidation Expertise Center, Laboratory Genetic Metabolic Diseases, Departments of Clinical Chemistry and Pediatrics, Emma Children's Hospital, Academic Medical Center, Meibergdreef 9, 1105, AZ, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation is an essential pathway for energy production, especially during prolonged fasting and sub-maximal exercise. Long-chain fatty acids are the most abundant fatty acids in the human diet and in body stores, and more than 15 enzymes are involved in long-chain fatty acid oxidation. Pathogenic mutations in genes encoding these enzymes result in a long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorder in which the energy homeostasis is compromised and long-chain acylcarnitines accumulate.

Innate immune cells in the adipose tissue.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 12;19(4):283-292

Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, TU Dresden, Fetscherstrasse 74, 01307, Dresden, Germany.

Immune cells are present in the adipose tissue (AT) and regulate its function. Under lean conditions, immune cells predominantly of type 2 immunity, including eosinophils, M2-like anti-inflammatory macrophages and innate lymphoid cells 2, contribute to the maintenance of metabolic homeostasis within the AT. In the course of obesity, pro-inflammatory immune cells, such as M1-like macrophages, prevail in the AT. Read More

Department of Endocrinology and Center for Sexology and Gender Ghent University Hospital, Corneel Heymanslaan 10 9 K12, 9000, Ghent, IE, Belgium.

High quality empirical data assessing morbidity and mortality and cancer incidence among transgender people are almost non-existent. Sex hormone treatment of conditions in older non-transgender people might as yet be taken as the best available analogy to hormone administration to aging transgender persons. Testosterone administration to transgender men carries little risk with regard to cardiovascular disease and cancer. Read More

Gaps in transgender medical education among healthcare providers: A major barrier to care for transgender persons.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 09;19(3):271-275

Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery, Mount Sinai Health System and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, 275 7th Ave, Suite 1505, New York, NY, 10001, USA.

A lack of access to knowledgeable providers is the greatest reported barrier to care for transgender individuals. The purpose of this manuscript is to review the recent literature characterizing transgender medicine education for medical providers and to summarize effective interventions for improving education in transgender care. The PubMed database was searched for all literature that assessed transgender medical education among physicians or trainees and all papers that reported results of transgender-specific educational interventions.

Not quite type 1 or type 2, what now? Review of monogenic, mitochondrial, and syndromic diabetes.

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 03;19(1):35-52

Institute of Cellular Medicine (Diabetes), The Medical School, Newcastle University, Framlington Place, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 4HH, UK.

Diabetes mellitus is a heterogeneous group of conditions defined by resultant chronic hyperglycemia. Given the increasing prevalence of diabetes mellitus and the increasing understanding of genetic etiologies, we present a broad review of rare genetic forms of diabetes that have differing diagnostic and/or treatment implications from type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Advances in understanding the genotype-phenotype associations in these rare forms of diabetes offer clinically available examples of evolving precision medicine where defining the correct genetic etiology can radically alter treatment approaches.

Hyperammonemia and lactic acidosis in adults: Differential diagnoses with a focus on inborn errors of metabolism.

Authors:
Michel Tchan

Rev Endocr Metab Disord 2018 03;19(1):69-79

Department of Genetic Medicine, Westmead Hospital, Westmead, NSW, Australia.

The adult endocrinologist may be asked to consult on a patient for unexplained biochemical disturbances that could be caused by an underlying inborn error of metabolism. A genetic disorder is generally less likely to be the cause as these disorders are individually rare, however inborn errors of metabolism are collectively not infrequent and important to consider as they may be treatable and tragic outcomes avoided. Hyperammonemia or lactic acidosis are most often secondary markers of an acquired primary disease process, but they may be a clue to the presence of a genetic disorder. Read More
