Introduction-objective: Fas-mediated thyroid cell apoptosis is differentially regulated in autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) being up-regulated in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) and down-regulated in Graves’ disease (GD). The soluble form of Fas (sFas), lacking the transmembrane domain due to alternative splicing may inhibit apoptosis by binding to Fas ligand. In this preliminary study we examined whether sFas is also differentially expressed in patients with AITD....

Introduction: In the literature there are only three papers so far, addressing the impact of thyroid antibodies (Anti-TPO) on pregnancy in Type1 Diabetic Women (DM1) and these present conflicting results. The aim of the study is to evaluate the presence of Anti-TPO in DM1 pregnant women and whether these are related with differences in thyroid function, metabolic control and pregnancy outcome.Methods: In 78 DM1 women with singleton pregnancies Anti-TPO, ...
