Serum concentration of soluble Fas in patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases.
TLDR
Serum levels of sFas in Hashimoto's thyroiditis suggests decreased Fas mRNA variant and increased full-length Fas mRNA and membrane Fas, and may induce destruction of thyroid cells by promoting apoptosis of thyroid Cells.
Postpartum autoimmune thyroid syndrome: a model of aggravation of autoimmune disease.
TLDR
It was found that postpartum onset of rheumatoid arthritis was found in 0.08% of women in the general population and could be partially predicted by measuring r heumatoid factors in early pregnancy.
Prediction of post‐partum Graves' thyrotoxicosis by measurement of thyroid stimulating antibody in early pregnancy
TLDR
This work followed up the pregnant women with antithyroid microsomal antibody from early pregnancy to the post‐partum period and analysed the relation between the activities of thyroid stimulating antibodies (TSAb) in early pregnancy and post-partum occurrence of Graves' disease.
Practical treatment with minimum maintenance dose of anti-thyroid drugs for prediction of remission in Graves' disease.
TLDR
Data indicate that minimum maintenance therapy to keep euthyroid (normal FT4 and TSH) for 6 months is a practical measure for 81% prediction of remission in Graves' disease.
Subtypes of anti-TSH receptor antibodies classified by various assays using CHO cells expressing wild-type or chimeric human TSH receptor.
TLDR
The heterogeneity of TBIIs as well as TSAbs provides a basis to explain the lack of correlation between TBII and TSAb activities in some past studies of Graves' sera.
Changes in Cytokine Production During and After Normal Pregnancy
TLDR
Increase in production of both Th1‐ and Th2‐type cytokines in the postpartum period may be related to the pregnancy‐induced amelioration of autoimmune diseases.
Screening for Postpartum Thyroid Dysfunction in the General Population Is Beneficial
TLDR
It was revealed that pregnant women with positive TSAb in early pregnancy had a much higher risk of developing postpartum Graves’ disease, and antiTSH receptor (TSHR) antibodies (TRAb) with conventional radio-receptor assay (thyrotropin binding inhibitory immunoglobulin; TBII) were not useful in predicting post partum Graves' disease.
Prevalence of postpartum onset of disease within patients with Graves' disease of child-bearing age.
TLDR
A retrospective examination of 289 consecutive female patients with Graves' disease who attended the thyroid clinic revealed that at least 40% of Graves' patients of 20-39 y.o. developed their disease during the postpartum period.
Differentiation of postpartum thyrotoxicosis by serum thyroglobulin: usefulness of a new multisite immunoradiometric assay.
TLDR
Serial measurement of serum Tg is useful for the differentiation of destruction-induced thyrotoxicosis from Graves' thy rotoxicosis after delivery, and when data were expressed as the percent increase from the level one month before, and the cut-off value were taken at 150%, all 7 patients above the cut off developed destruction- induced thyrotoxicityosis, and 6 of 7 below had recurrent Graves' thyroid disease.
