  1. 1. Aspects of chronic autoimmune thyroiditis in children and adolescents

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper, Malmö

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to 1) compare different methods for detection of antibodies against thyroglobulin (TgAb) and thyroid peroxidase (TPOAb), particulary in children with chronic autoimmune thyroditis (AIT), 2) investigate if maternal enterovirus infection is a risk factor for development of AIT in offspring, 3) ascertain the prevalence of thyroid autoantibodies in cord blood sera from children who later developed AIT, 4) develop a new reference standard for interpretation of normative thyroid volumes in Swedish children, and 5) evaluate the effect of Levothyroxine (L-thyroxine) treatment on thyroid size in children and adolescents with AIT. We found that 1) Methods based on radioimmunoassay (RIA) were more efficient in detecting both TgAb and TPOAb in children with AIT than methods based on agglutination. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder affecting women of reproductive age. On a global level, iodine deficiency is still the most common cause of hypothyroidism. Also genetic variations, in particular SNP rs4704397 in the PDE8B gene, are responsible for a significant proportion of TSH variations. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hyperthyroidism and its impact on cardiovascular disease : with special emphasis on atrial fibrillation

    Sammanfattning : Background Hyperthyroidism is a common disease throughout the world, affecting 0.5%-2% of women and one-tenth as many men at some time. Graves’ disease and toxic nodular goitre are the two most common etiologies. Cardiovascular symptoms are often prominent, and atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well-known complication. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Quality of life in patients with thyroid cancer
