Impact of Covid-19 disease on thyroid function: longitudinal study

Muller Ilaria , Varallo Matteo , Daturi Anita , E Re Tiziana , Dazzi Davide , Longari Virgilio , Gori Andrea , Mantovani Giovanna , Arosio Maura , Salvi Mario

Background: The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic disease (Covid-19) affects thyroid function with different mechanisms: non-thyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS), direct infection of thyroid gland and cytokine storm. We provided the first description of painless atypical thyroiditis coexisting with NTIS in patients hospitalised for moderate-to-severe Covid-19 disease. We aimed to: 1) correlate thyroid dysfunction with Covid-19 disease severity;...

Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) during the COVID-19 pandemic: preliminary data from the “ESE Covid Grant 2021” project

Loiacono Simona , Zanni Eleonora , Sueri Roberta , De Vincentis Sara , Laura Monzani Maria , Di Marco Francesco , Muller Ilaria , Simoni Manuela , Santi Daniele , Brigante Giulia

Introduction: A possible association between the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV)-2 pandemic, in terms of infection and/or vaccination, and subacute thyroiditis (SAT) has been recently reported. Although a higher SAT incidence in pandemic has been described, data are still conflicting.Aim: To determine SAT incidence in Italy during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and to characterize clinical peculiarities and response to medical treatment...

Is the pre-conceptional TSH optimization useful in women submitted to assisted reproduction technology?

Maria Vannucchi Guia , Campi Irene , Cagnina Serena , Covelli Danila , Persani Luca , Mignini Renzini Mario , Fugazzola Laura

Background: thyroid function (TSH levels) and thyroid autoimmunity are involved in the immunomodulation of early pregnancy stages and can affect assisted reproductive technology (ART).Aims: 1) to evaluate if pre-conceptional TSH is associated with an increased risk of miscarriage, 2) to identify a TSH cut-off significantly associated with risk of miscarriage, 3) to assess the impact of TSH levels on primary and surrogate outcomes.M...

The “real-life” thyroid function tests results during pregnancy in the longitudinal observation

Trofimiuk-Muldner Malgorzata , Nowak Andrzej , Sokolowski Grzegorz , Buziak-Bereza Monika , Lewiński Andrzej , Karbownik-Lewińska Małgorzata , Hubalewska-Dydejczyk Alicja

The reference ranges of thyroid function tests during pregnancy are still being debated, even in ethnically homogenous populations. The defining of the normal range is of importance, as it influences therapeutic decisions, particularly the use (or over-use) of levothyroxine in this vulnerable population. The study was aimed at the longitudinal assessment of thyroid function tests results in marginally iodine sufficient Polish population of pregnant women. The study was perform...

Which factors can influence the occurrence of two nondiagnostic results in fine-needle aspiration cytology of the same thyroid nodule?

Cosme Ines , Silvestre Catarina , Joao Bugalho Maria

Introduction: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of thyroid nodules can be associated with non-diagnostic (ND) results, despite the usage of ultrasound (US) guidance. It is recommended to repeat the FNAC because of the possible risk of malignancy in these nodules.Aim: To evaluate the influence of demographic, clinical and echographic characteristics in the recurrence of ND FNAC in a thyroid nodule.Methods: Retrospective review ...

Association of thyroid hormones with clinical status and cardiovascular outcomes of HFpEF patients

Leite Ana Rita , Neves Joao Sergio , Vasques-Novoa Francisco , Saraiva Francisca A , Cristina Oliveira Ana , Borges-Canha Marta , von Hafe Madalena , Vale Catarina , Angelico-Goncalves Antonio , Leite-Moreira Adelino F

Introduction: Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a clinical syndrome with high mortality, for which there are few disease modifying therapeutics. Thyroid axis dysfunction is common in heart failure (HF) and may contribute to the pathogenesis of HFpEF. However, the association of thyroid hormones (TH) with the clinical status of HFpEF patients and their prognostic impact in this syndrome are not clear. Methods: We evaluated 93 parti...

Altered expression profiles of miR-22-5p and miR-142-3p display Hashimoto´s disease and are associated with thyroid antibodies

Background: HashimotoÂ’s thyroiditis (HT), the most prevalent autoimmune disorder of the thyroid (AITD) is characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies, induced by a not fully understood dysregulation of the immune system. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs, which can play a pivotal role in immune functions and the development of autoimmunity. The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate whether a panel of nine selected miRNAs differs in ser...
