Cigarette smoking but not the TSHR germline polymorphism D727E is associated with toxic multinodular goitre (TMNG) and the thyroid volume

Jorn Jakob , Miehle Konstanze , Schmidt Claudia , Wicht Juliane , Paschke Ralf

Objective: There are contradictory results regarding the possible association of the TSHR polymorphism D727E with TMNG. Furthermore the influence of smoking on the thyroid volume has been reported by several authors. A possible association of smoking with thyroid nodules and particularly TMNG has not been investigated up to date.Methods: In this study, 88 patients with TMNG were included. Diagnosis was verified by ultrasonography, scinthiscan, and measur...

Objective: Treatment with metreleptin ameliorates hepatic steatosis in patients with lipodystrophy. The anti-steatotic effect of metreleptin is partially independent of its anorexic action, which suggests a direct effect of metreleptin on hepatic lipid metabolism. However, this mechanism is unknown. Based on previous findings in rodents, we hypothesized that metreleptin reduces hepatic lipid content by stimulating very-low density lipoprotein triglyceride (VLDL1-TG) secretion,...
