In infertile women suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies values exceeding the upper level of normal were found in significantly more clomiphene citrate resistant patients compared clomiphene citrate responders and metformin responders. Thus, elevated antiTPO levels are associated with poor treatment response in infertile women who suffer from PCOS.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis is part of the spectrum of autoimmune thyroid diseases characterized by the destruction of thyroid cells by antibody mediated immune processes. Although there are some studies ...
Background: Low vitamin D status is associated with autoimmune thyroid disease. Oral vitamin D supplementation was found to reduce titers of thyroid antibodies in levothyroxine-treated women with post...
Polymorphisms of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) gene have been studied in various autoimmune disorders, but not in Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Also, increased oxidative stress ha...
Thyroglobulin (Tg) and thyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibodies (TgAb and TPOAb), which are primarily of the immunoglobulin G (IgG) class, can mediate antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity in vitro...
Background: Intensive statin therapy was found to reduce thyroid autoimmunity in women with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. No similar data are available for other hypolipidemic agents. Methods: The particip...
Thyroid hormone (TH) and fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF-21) are reported to share common metabolic pathways and underlying mechanisms in terms of energy balance, thus affecting both ther...
To investigate whether the supplementation of organic selenium at the "adult" dose (200 mcg per day in the form of L-selenomethionine) has a favorable impact on thyroid function, including...
Hashimoto Thyroiditis (HT) and Graves Disease (GD) are known to be caused by abnormal immune response against self cells and tissues. Epigenetics is a novel field of biology studying the m...
Lymphocytic thyroiditis is the most common autoimmune disease, usually affecting young women. Although the aetiology and pathogenesis remain obscure, the most widely accepted hypothesis is...
Oxidative stress leads to or accompanies with numerous disease. Oxidative balance in subclinical hypothyroid or euthyroid state in Hashimoto disease are not known. Effect of levothyroxine...
Inflammatory diseases of the THYROID GLAND. Thyroiditis can be classified into acute (THYROIDITIS, SUPPURATIVE), subacute (granulomatous and lymphocytic), chronic fibrous (Riedel's), chronic lymphocytic (HASHIMOTO DISEASE), transient (POSTPARTUM THYROIDITIS), and other AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS subtypes.
Chronic autoimmune thyroiditis, characterized by the presence of high serum thyroid AUTOANTIBODIES; GOITER; and HYPOTHYROIDISM.
Transient autoimmune thyroiditis occurring in the POSTPARTUM PERIOD. It is characterized by the presence of high titers of AUTOANTIBODIES against THYROID PEROXIDASE and THYROGLOBULIN. Clinical signs include the triphasic thyroid hormone pattern: beginning with THYROTOXICOSIS, followed with HYPOTHYROIDISM, then return to euthyroid state by 1 year postpartum.
A thioureylene antithyroid agent that inhibits the formation of thyroid hormones by interfering with the incorporation of iodine into tyrosyl residues of thyroglobulin. This is done by interfering with the oxidation of iodide ion and iodotyrosyl groups through inhibition of the peroxidase enzyme.
A 66-kDa peroxidase found in EOSINOPHIL granules. Eosinophil peroxidase is a cationic protein with a pI of 10.8 and is comprised of a heavy chain subunit and a light chain subunit. It possesses cytotoxic activity towards BACTERIA and other organisms, which is attributed to its peroxidase activity.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
