Important target tissues are the thyroid, the islets of Langerhans, gastric parietal cells and steroid-producing cells in the adrenal and ovary. The etiology of these diseases remains to be(More)
In the early development of type 1 diabetes macrophages and dendritic cells accumulate around the islets of Langerhans at sites of fibronectin expression. It is thought that these macrophages and dendritic cells are derived from blood monocytes. Previously, we showed an increased serum level of MRP8/14 in type 1 diabetes patients that induced healthy(More)
There is room for immune markers other than TPO-Abs to identify an increased risk to develop autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD). Our aim was to test the hypothesis that activation of CD4+ T cells is such marker in relatives of AITD patients, who have an increased risk to develop AITD. We established a controlled study on 20 TPO-Ab positive and 20 TPO-Ab(More)
