Presented is a cohort study to assess the nature and frequency of thyroid peroxidase (TPO) mutations in 45 patients (35 families) with congenital hypothyroidism due to a total iodide organification defect; incidence is 1:66,000 in The Netherlands. The presentation is consistently similar with a severe form of congenital hypothyroidism and also characterized(More)
We studied the effects of the presence or absence of the thyroid gland on the iodine metabolism and excretion in term Dutch newborns by performing a retrospective study of the urinary iodine excretion in 193 term newborns with abnormal congenital hypothyroidism screening results. Thirty-six euthyroid newborns with decreased thyroxine-binding globulin levels(More)
Autosomal Dominant Hypercholesterolemia (ADH) is caused by LDLR and APOB mutations. However, genetically diagnosed ADH patients do not always exhibit the expected hypercholesterolemic phenotype. Of 4,669 genetically diagnosed ADH patients, identified through the national identification screening program for ADH, 75 patients (1.6%) had LDL-cholesterol(More)
CONTEXT The recent cloning of the human iodotyrosine deiodinase (IYD) gene enables the investigation of iodotyrosine dehalogenase deficiency, a form a primary hypothyroidism resulting from iodine wasting, at the molecular level. OBJECTIVE In the current study, we identify the genetic basis of dehalogenase deficiency in a consanguineous family. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid hormone is crucial for brain development during foetal and neonatal life. In very preterm infants, transient low levels of plasma T4 and T3 are commonly found, a phenomenon referred to as transient hypothyroxinaemia of prematurity. We investigated whether breast milk is a substantial resource of thyroid hormone for very preterm neonates(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid hormone is prerequisite for proper fetal and postnatal neurodevelopment, growth, and metabolism. Although much progress has been made in the characterization of genes implicated in thyroid development and function, the majority of genes involved in this process are still unknown. We have previously applied serial analysis of gene(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS We recently identified lysosomal acid lipase (LAL) deficiency, a recessive disease caused by mutations in LIPA, in 3 patients with a clinical diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). We aimed to determine the prevalence of LIPA mutations among individuals with a clinical FH diagnosis. METHODS In 276 patients with phenotypic FH,(More)
