Thionamides, inhibitors of the thyroid peroxidase-mediated iodination, are clinically used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. However, the use of antithyroid drugs is associated with immunomodulatory effects, and recent studies with thionamide-related heterocyclic thioderivates demonstrated direct anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties.

Treatment of hyperthyroidism by thionamides is associated with immunomodulatory effects, but the mechanism of thionamide-induced immunosuppression is unclear. Here we show that thionamides directly inhibit interleukin-2 cytokine expression, proliferation, and the activation (CD69 expression) of primary human T lymphocytes. Inhibition of immune function was(More)
