Background: Phosphoprotein enriched in diabetes (PED) is a scaffold protein widely produced in different tissues; it is involved in multiple cellular functions, including insulin-regulated glucose transport. Previous findings showed that in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) the PED gene is overexpressed in skeletal muscle (SM) and adipose tissue (AT), both target tissues for insulin activity. Our group has recently evidenced that PED protein is also expressed in periphera...

Background: Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is a new method employed in the management of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). The integrated FDG-PET plus computed tomography (PET/CT) fusion imaging system seems able to provide some additional advantages over PET alone, mainly related to a better anatomical localisation of the hypermetabolic metastatic lesions. The influence of serum TSH levels on 18F-FDG uptake by recurrences o...
