The purpose of this study is to determine whether radioactive iodine, as compared to anti-thyroid medications, is a risk factor for the development or progression of thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy in patients with hyperthyroidism due to Graves' disease. The other aim of this study is to determine the incidence of the various ophthalmopathy subtypes and the utility of orbital antibodies in the diagnosis, classification and monitoring of patients with thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy.

In an investigator initiated multicenter trial (Malmö, Odense, Århus) the investigators aim at evaluating activity of Graves´ophthalmopathy (GO) and progress to severe GO in patients wi...
This study is being done to investigate the effects (good and bad) of Rituximab for the treatment of an autoimmune eye disease called Graves' ophthalmopathy. This disease has proven to be ...
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the effects of 20 Gy of external-beam radiotherapy to 1 orbit vs. the untreated orbit at 3 and 6 months after therapy in patients with Graves' ophthalmopathy. II....
The purpose of the current study is to confirm safety/tolerability and key pharmacodynamic (PD) effects that are considered to drive clinical benefit in GO patients.
This is a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study about the effect of metformin in patients with mild Graves' ophthalmopathy. Eighty patients with mild ophthalmopat...
Smoking is a strong risk factor for the development of Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO). Immediate early genes (IEGs) are overexpressed in patients with active GO compared to healthy controls. The aim of t...
We assess outcomes of endoscopic orbital decompression for Graves' ophthalmopathy.
Lacrimal gland (LG) involvement in patients with Graves ophthalmopathy (GO) has been considered as a potential cause of the associated GO symptoms and different studies demonstrated the LG involvement...
To develop and assess the psychometric properties of the Thai version of the Graves' Ophthalmopathy Quality of Life (GO-QOL) questionnaire.
In this retrospective, single-centre cohort study, we report our 10-year experience concerning clinical manifestation, diagnosis and treatment of Graves' orbitopathy (GO), with particular regard to an...
An autoimmune disorder of the EYE, occurring in patients with Graves disease. Subtypes include congestive (inflammation of the orbital connective tissue), myopathic (swelling and dysfunction of the extraocular muscles), and mixed congestive-myopathic ophthalmopathy.
A common form of hyperthyroidism with a diffuse hyperplastic GOITER. It is an autoimmune disorder that produces antibodies against the THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE RECEPTOR. These autoantibodies activate the TSH receptor, thereby stimulating the THYROID GLAND and hypersecretion of THYROID HORMONES. These autoantibodies can also affect the eyes (GRAVES OPHTHALMOPATHY) and the skin (Graves dermopathy).
An imidazole antithyroid agent. Carbimazole is metabolized to METHIMAZOLE, which is responsible for the antithyroid activity.
Complexes of iodine and non-ionic SURFACE-ACTIVE AGENTS acting as carrier and solubilizing agent for the iodine in water. Iodophors usually enhance bactericidal activity of iodine, reduce vapor pressure and odor, minimize staining, and allow wide dilution with water. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Stable iodine atoms that have the same atomic number as the element iodine, but differ in atomic weight. I-127 is the only naturally occurring stable iodine isotope.
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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
