Thyrotoxicosis increases endogenous glucose production (EGP) and induces hepatic insulin resistance. We have recently shown that these alterations can be modulated by selective hepatic sympathetic and parasympathetic denervation, pointing to neurally mediated effects of thyroid hormone on glucose metabolism. Here, we investigated the effects of central(More)
BACKGROUND Thymidylate synthase (TS) and dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) are essential enzymes for 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) metabolism. In patients with advanced colorectal cancer (ACRC), retrospective studies have shown that low expression levels of TS and DPD correlated with response to 5-FU. We performed a prospective study in which the choice of(More)
