F-Fluorocholine PET/CT, Tc-99m-MIBI and TC-99m-MDP SPECT/CT in Tertiary Hyperparathyroidism with Renal Osteodystrophy.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2020 Oct 20;10(10). Epub 2020 Oct 20.

Section of Radiology and Radiation Oncology, Interdisciplinary Department of Medicine, University of Bari Aldo Moro, Piazza Giulio Cesare 11, 70124 Bari, Italy.

Tertiary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is a metabolic disorder characterized by the semi-autonomous hypersecretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH), leading to hypercalcemia. It can be the end result of persistent secondary hyperparathyroidism and is most commonly observed in patients with long-standing chronic kidney disease (CKD) and often after renal transplantation. Untreated HPT can lead to progressive bone disease, fibrocystic osteitis, and soft-tissue calcifications, along with other severe complications. Read More

Are the thyroid and adrenal system alterations linked in depression?

Psychoneuroendocrinology 2020 12 29;122:104831. Epub 2020 Sep 29.

APF2R, Centre Hospitalier, Pôle 8/9, 68250 Rouffach, France.

Background: Disturbances in the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axes have been frequently found in major depression. Given that glucocorticoids may inhibit thyrotropin (TSH) and thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) secretion, it has been hypothesized that hypercortisolemia could lead to HPT axis abnormalities. So far, data on interactions between the HPA and HPT axes in depression remain inconclusive. Read More

Low-dose effects on thyroid disruption in zebrafish by long-term exposure to oxytetracycline.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 Oct 20;227:105608. Epub 2020 Aug 20.

Department of Pediatrics, Xinhua Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, School of Medicine, Shanghai, China. Electronic address:

As a feed additive in agriculture, the antibiotic oxytetracycline (OTC) has become widely distributed in the natural environment, leading to the exposure of many organisms to low doses of OTC. Although OTC is clinically contraindicated in children because of its multiple side effects, the effect of exposure to low doses of environmental OTC on children is unknown, particularly during development. In this study, we investigated the effects of OTC on the thyroid endocrine system in zebrafish, through determinations of the whole-body contents of triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and analysis of the mRNA expression of regulatory genes involved in the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction.

Remarkable Structural Diversity between Zr/Hf and Rare-Earth MOFs via Ligand Functionalization and the Discovery of Unique (4, 8)-c and (4, 12)-connected Frameworks.

J Am Chem Soc 2020 Sep 4;142(37):15986-15994. Epub 2020 Sep 4.

Department of Chemistry, University of Crete, Voutes, Heraklion 71003, Greece.

Ligand modification in MOFs provides great opportunities not only for the development of functional materials with new or enhanced properties but also for the discovery of novel structures. We report here that a sulfone-functionalized tetrahedral carboxylate-based ligand is capable of directing the formation of new and fascinating MOFs when combined with Zr/Hf and rare-earth metal cations (RE) with improved gas-sorption properties. In particular, the resulting M--SO (M: Zr, Hf) materials display a new type of the augmented -a net, which is different as compared to the -a framework formed by the nonfunctionalized tetrahedral ligand.

Impact of in-feed sodium butyrate or sodium heptanoate protected with medium-chain fatty acids on gut health in weaned piglets challenged with F4.

Arch Anim Nutr 2020 Aug 28;74(4):271-295. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

Animal Nutrition and Welfare Service, Animal and Food Science Department, Facultat de Veterinària, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona , Bellaterra, Spain.

Short and medium-chain fatty acids (SCFA and MCFA, respectively) are commonly used as feed additives in piglets to promote health and prevent post-weaning diarrhoea. Considering that the mechanism and site of action of these fatty acids can differ, a combined supplementation could result in a synergistic action. Considering this, it was aimed to assess the potential of two new in-feed additives based on butyrate or heptanoate, protected with sodium salts of MCFA from coconut distillates, against enterotoxigenic (ETEC) F4 using an experimental disease model.

Uremic leontiasis ossea due to secondary hyperparathyroidism complicated by vitamin C deficiency in a non-adherent chronic hemodialysis patient: A case report.

Clin Nephrol Case Stud 2019 9;7:54-59. Epub 2019 Sep 9.

Department of Medicine.

Non-adherence to medical therapy in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) can lead to severe metabolic derangements rarely seen in the current medical era. Such complications may take the form of secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) leading to rare manifestations of bone mineral disease, and profound vitamin C deficiency from poor nutrition combined with removal of water-soluble vitamins during dialysis. Secondary HPT causes renal osteodystrophy which can lead to diffuse enlargement of the facial skeleton and morphological changes suggestive of leontiasis ossea. Read More

Postnatal Testicular Activity in Healthy Boys and Boys With Cryptorchidism.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2019 23;10:489. Epub 2019 Jul 23.

Department of Pediatrics, Kuopio University Hospital, Kuopio, Finland.

Cryptorchidism, or undescended testis, is a well-known risk factor for testicular cancer and impaired semen quality in adulthood, conditions which have their origins in early fetal and postnatal life. In human pregnancy, the interplay of testicular and placental hormones as well as local regulatory factors and control by the hypothalamic-pituitary (HP) axis, lead to testicular descent by term. The normal masculine development may be disrupted by environmental factors or genetic defects and result in undescended testes. Read More

Evaluating the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Thyroid (HPT) Axis in Mice.

F E Wondisford

Methods Mol Biol 2018 ;1801:155-161

Department of Medicine, Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Henry Rutgers Term Chair and Chancellor Scholar Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ, 08901, USA.

As the genome of experimental animals has become easier to manipulate, a number of mouse models have been developed to understand in vivo thyroid hormone action. A major site of thyroid hormone action is the HPT axis. While several methods are available that provide a detailed understanding of the HPT axis in mice, many authors choose to include only cursory data about this axis, which can lead to erroneous conclusions about in vivo thyroid hormone action.

Predicting Plasma Free Hemoglobin Levels in Patients Due to Medical Device-Related Hemolysis.

ASAIO J 2019 Mar/Apr;65(3):207-218

From the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Silver Spring, Maryland.

Blood passage through medical devices can cause hemolysis and increased levels of plasma free hemoglobin (pfH) that may lead to adverse effects such as vasoconstriction and renal tubule injury. Although the hemolytic potential of devices is typically characterized in vitro using animal blood, the results can be impacted by various blood parameters, such as donor species. Moreover, it is unclear how to relate measured in vitro hemolysis levels to clinical performance because pfH accumulation in vivo depends on both hemolysis rate and availability of plasma haptoglobin (Hpt) that can bind and safely eliminate pfH.

Hypogonadism and male obesity: Focus on unresolved questions.

Mathis Grossmann

Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 2018 07 16;89(1):11-21. Epub 2018 May 16.

Department of Medicine Austin Health, University of Melbourne, Heidelberg, Vic, Australia.

Obesity, increasing in prevalence globally, is the clinical condition most strongly associated with lowered testosterone concentrations in men and presents as one of the strongest predictors of receiving testosterone treatment. While low circulating total testosterone concentrations in modest obesity primarily reflect reduced concentrations of sex hormone binding globulin, more marked obesity can lead to genuine hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis (HPT) suppression. HPT axis suppression is likely mediated via pro-inflammatory cytokine and dysregulated leptin signalling and aggravated by associated comorbidities. Read More

Current treatment of hypoparathyroidism: Theory versus reality waiting guidelines for children and adolescents.

Acta Biomed 2018 03 27;89(1):122-131. Epub 2018 Mar 27.


The diagnosis of hypoparathyroidism(HPT)is readily made in the presence of hypocalcemia with markedly reduced or absent parathormone (PTH) levels. Currently available treatments for HPT include high dose vitamin D (ergocalciferol, D2 and cholecalciferol, D3) or, the active metabolite dihydroxy vitamin D (calcitriol), in addition to calcium supplements.This regimen, if not well monitored, can lead to hypercalciuria, as PTH deficiency impairs renal calcium reabsorption.
