Metabolic syndrome is common among patients with adrenal incidentalomas, but not associated with functional adrenal status

Tsentidis Charalampos , Bampilis Andreas , Ntova Vasiliki , Betsi Grigoria , Kassi Georgia

Background: Adrenal incidentalomas (AI) have an increasing prevalence during last decades, probably due to the extended use of new imaging techniques and longer life expectancy. Adrenal hormonal hypersecretion, even subclinical, is probably related to cardiovascular disease (CVD).Methods: We evaluated 100 patients with adrenal masses, incidentally discovered in imaging techniques performed for non adrenal disorders (67 Female, 33 Male, mean 58.1±12....

Patient compliance, mainly due to lower socioeconomic status, is the principal predictor of effective acromegaly treatment: data from a single tertiary center

Tsentidis Charalampos , Bampilis Andreas , Fragkos Dimitrios , Panos Christos , Mitakidou Eleni , Limniati Christina , Kassi Georgia

Introduction: Effective acromegaly treatment in the era of somatostatin analog therapy may initially seem easy to apply. Several factors, modifiable or not, may be involved in every patient’s treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate possible factors affecting effective acromegaly treatment.Methods: From the original pool of 25 patients, that were diagnosed with acromegaly in our department during the last 15 years, 18 are currently being fol...

Vasileiou Emmanouil , Tsentidis Charalampos , Bampilis Andreas , Ntova Vasiliki , Betsi Grigoria , Kassi Georgia

Introduction: Pembrolizumab is a programmed death receptor-1(PD-1)-blocking antibody, used in a variety of advanced malignant tumors with promising results, although adverse events are not rare.Case report: We present the case of an adult female, with negative personal and family history of autoimmune diseases, who developed malignant superficial melanoma of right wrist 6 years ago. She was initially treated with surgical resection (lesion and ipsilatera...

Detection of hypoglycemia in type 2 diabetic patients

Tsirona Sofia , Pappas Christos , Kandaraki Eleni , Kassi Georgia , Chronopoulou Genovefa , Diamanti-Kandarakis Evanthia

Introduction: Hypoglycemia consists a significant problem in insulin treated type 2 diabetic patients. The present study compared the incidence of hypoglycemic episodes in type 2 diabetics between continuous glucose monitoring/CGM vs self monitoring of blood glucose/SMBG.Methods: Seventeen patients with type 2 diabetes underwent a 24 h CGM for a period of 3–5 consecutive days. At the same period they recorded their glucose values using SMBG from fou...

Autoimmune diabetes mellitus adult patients having latent autoimmune diabetes of adulthood (LADA) form exhibit different prevalence of accompanying autoimmune diseases than patients with conventional (juvenile) autoimmune type 1 diabetes: Furthermore, anti-GAD autoantibodies are strongly associated with accompanying autoimmune diseases in patients with autoimmune diabetes mellitus

Gougourelas Dimitrios , Tsentidis Charalampos , Koutsovasilis Anastasios , koufadaki Athina-Maria , Gougourela Efpraxia , Kassi Georgia , Sotiropoulos Alexios , Bousboulas Stavros , Karavanaki Kyriaki

Introduction: Autoimmune diabetes mellitus patients, either with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults (LADA) form or with conventional (juvenile) autoimmune type 1 diabetes (T1D) form, exhibit a higher prevalence of Accompanying Autoimmune Diseases (AADs). The aim of this study was to investigate possible differences in AADs, Familial Autoimmune Diseases (FADs) and metabolic profile between patients with LADA and T1D and between patients with or without anti-GAD (Anti-Glutamic...

Association of basal and post-synacthen stimulated 17-hydroxyprogesterone levels with insulin resistance in polycystic ovary syndrome

Kandaraki Eleni , Papadakis Georgios , Tsirona Sofia , Asimakopoulou Athina , Chiotinis Nikolaos , Chronopoulou Genovefa , Kassi Georgia , Diamanti-Kandarakis Evanthia

Objective: 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate therapy during pregnancy has been associated with insulin resistance. The aim of this study was to highlight any possible association of 17OHP with insulin resistance in women with PCOS.Design: Forty-five women with PCOS underwent 75 g OGTT test and short Synachten test with sampling of stimulated 17OHP. Women were divided into two subgroups according to basal 17OHP cut-off level of 0.8 ng/ml.<p class=...

Background: This is the first study, that aimed: a) to compare immune response, namely the kinetics of neutralizing antibodies (Nabs), after vaccination with BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine between patients with autoimmune thyroiditis and controls, and b) to investigate changes in thyroid function in healthy subjects with no history of thyroid dysfunction before and after vaccination.Methods: The entire study consisted of two sub-studies. In the first sub-study, N...
