Cancer incidence was studied in 10,552 patients (mean age, 57 years) who received 131I therapy (mean dose, 506 MBq) for hyperthyroidism between 1950 and 1975. Follow-up on these patients was continued for an average of 15 years. Record linkage with the Swedish Cancer Register for the period 1958-1985 identified 1543 cancers occurring 1 year or more after(More)
UNLABELLED The existence of thyroid stunning (i.e., inhibited thyroidal iodide uptake after administration of diagnostic amounts of (131)I) is controversial and is currently a subject of debate. To our knowledge, the stunning phenomenon has not been investigated previously in vitro. METHODS Growth-arrested porcine thyroid cells that formed a tight and(More)
The long-term effect on aspects of quality of life (QoL) of treatment with transdermal oestrogen for 2 weeks followed by transdermal oestrogen/progestogen norethisterone acetate/oestradiol TTS 0.25/0.05 mg/day for the next 2 weeks was investigated in postmenopausal women within the framework of a 1-year seven-centre trial. Of the 136 women who were included(More)
We investigated whether recombinant human TSH (rhTSH) safely and effectively induces uptake of high-dose 131-iodine (131I) to ablate thyroid remnant or treat disease, in patients with well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma. Eleven consecutive patients unable to tolerate thyroid hormone withdrawal received one im injection of 0.9 mg rhTSH on 2 consecutive(More)
CONTEXT Previous randomized trials have suggested an association between radioiodine treatment for Graves' hyperthyroidism and thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO). OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to compare the occurrence of worsening or development of TAO in patients who were treated with radioiodine or antithyroid drugs. DESIGN We conducted a(More)
We sent out a questionnaire to 112 women treated for diffuse toxic goitre 2-5 years earlier to evaluate the prevalence of problems with overweight after the disease. Of 87 responders, about 50% (irrespective of surgical or radioiodine treatment) reported weight problems, and we randomly selected 40 of these women (20 with and 20 without reported weight(More)
Micropatterns induced by sheep grazing, were studied in three consecutive years in a Festuca rubra-dominated salt marsh in a grazing trial with five different stocking rates (0, 1.5, 3, 4.5 and 10 sheep ha-1). The micropatterns were formed by a mosaic of short and tall F. rubra stands on a scale of square decimeters. Permanent transects of 2 m × 10 m were(More)
The frequency of moderate and severe hot flushes was investigated in a group of women (n = 142) who took part in organized physical exercise on a regular basis, and a control group of all women 52 and 54 years old in the city of Linköping, Sweden (n = 1,246). Only women with natural menopause and without a history of hormonal replacement treatment were(More)
To evaluate the effect of transdermal sequential treatment with estradiol and estradiol/norethisterone acetate on lipoprotein metabolism, 25 postmenopausal women received treatment for 12 cycles of 4 weeks each (2 weeks estradiol 50 micrograms/day and 2 weeks a combined patch delivering norethisterone acetate 0.25 mg/day and estradiol 50 micrograms/day).(More)
The efficacy of transdermal norethisterone acetate in sequence with transdermal estradiol has been investigated in a multicenter study of 136 post-menopausal women to determine the incidence of endometrial hyperplasia, the effects on the vaginal cytology and the control of bleeding. Treatment consisted of 12 cycles of 4 weeks each (2 weeks estradiol 50(More)
