Background: Graves’ disease (GD) and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) are common disorders with an autoimmune etiology, which are known as autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD). A specific seasonal pattern of the month of birth has been suggested in several autoimmune disorders, supporting the hypothesis of a link between viral infections and the development of aberrant immune-regulatory mechanisms. However, there are few studies which specifically address this issue in AIT...

Ramos-Levi Ana M , Serrano Ana , Sampedro-Nunez Miguel A , Vicuna Alicia , Rodriguez-Munoz Ana , Martinez Rebeca , De la Fuente Hortensia , Marazuela Monica

Introduction: Patients with autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) exhibit aberrant immune-regulatory mechanisms. Galectins (Gal) are a family of glycan-binding proteins, which have been involved in immune regulation. However, the association of Gal with AITD remains unknown. In this study, we evaluated serum Gal-1 and Gal-9 in patients with AITD.Methods: Peripheral blood samples from 31 patients with Graves’ disease (GD) (14 with untreated hyperthyroidi...
