Introduction: Polymorphisms of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (AGEs), RAGE, have been associated with autoimmune disorders and their complications. There are no studies concerning Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT); the aim of our study was to investigate the possible role of two RAGE polymorphisms (−429T>C, −374T>A) in combination with indices of oxidative status in women with HT.Design: We examined 300 euth...
