Several lines of evidence support an etiological role of iodine for the initiation and perpetuation of autoimmune thyroid disease. However, varying relapse rates after increased iodine supplementation have been reported for Graves' disease. Furthermore the effects of iodine on the intensity of human autoimmune thyroiditis have previously only been(More)
AIMS To study the distribution of tenascin by immunocytochemistry in autoimmune diseases of the thyroid. METHODS Thyroids from patients with inflammatory lesions of the thyroid (lymphocytic thyroiditis Hashimoto, Grave's disease, thyroiditis DeQuervain) were studied by immunocytochemistry using antibodies against tenascin, collagen III, and collagen IV.(More)
Glioma stem cells (GSCs) are glioblastoma (GBM) cells that are resistant to therapy and can give rise to recurrent tumors. The identification of patient-related factors that support GSCs is thus necessary to design effective therapies for GBM patients. Glucocorticoids (GCs) are used to treat GBM-associated edema. However, glucocorticoids participate in the(More)
Paraffin-embedded surgical specimen from 47 Hürthle cell tumours of the thyroid gland were examined for DNA content by image cytometry to assess the diagnostic and prognostic utility of ploidy determination in oxyphilic tumors. Both adenomas (31 cases) and carcinomas (16 cases) were studied. As a control for the algorithm of DNA-interpretation, 10 randomly(More)
We studied the occurrence of DR-antigen (DR-Ag) positive thyroid epithelial cells (TEC), lymphocyte (Ly)-subsets, and antigen-presenting cells (APC) in thyroid carcinoma and the influence of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) on immunologic behavior. Tissue slices from various thyroid carcinomas (n = 14) and endemic goiters (n = 12) were investigated by(More)
