Conclusions: Our results demonstrate that patients successfully treated for CS could develop autoimmune diseases. Therefore, after treatment, CS patients need to be strictly monitored in order to evaluate the possible onset of autoimmune diseases. PMID: 30662460 [PubMed]

Abstract Autoimmune diseases, characterized by an alteration of the immune system which results in a loss of tolerance to self antigens often coexist in the same patient. Autoimmune atrophic gastritis, characterized by the development of antibodies agains parietal cells and against intrinsic factor, leads to mucosal destruction that affects primarily the corpus and fundus of the stomach. Autoimmune atrophic gastritis is frequently found in association with thyroid disease, including Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and with type 1 diabetes mellitus, Other autoimmune conditions that have been described in association with ...

GJ Abstract Context: The Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) strongly contributes to the development of polyglandular autoimmunity (PGA). Objective: To evaluate the impact of gender on human leukocyte antigen (HLA) association with PGA for the first time. Design: Cross-sectional immunogenetic study. Setting: Academic, tertiary referral, orphan disease center for PGA (ORPHA 282196) and immunogenetics laboratory. Subjects: 158 patients with coexistent type 1 diabetes and autoimmune thyroid disease (adult type three PGA, ORPHA 227982) and 479 unrelated healthy controls. Methods: All 637 C...

Abstract About two third of the human microbial commensal community, namely the gut microbiota, is hosted by the gastrointestinal tract which represents the largest interface of the organism to the external environment. This microbial community co-evolved in a symbiotic relationship with the human beings. Growing evidence support the notion that the microbiota plays a significant role in maintaining nutritional, metabolic and immunologic homeostasis in the host. Microbiota, beside the expected role in maintaining gastrointestinal homeostasis also exerts metabolic functions in nutrients digestion and absorption, de...

In this study, we evaluated 145 women with HT and 60 age-matched healthy controls. We compared the PLR and the NLR of HT patients with controls and the correlation between the NLR, PLR, and C-reactive protein (CRP), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroid antibody titers in the patient group. Also we compared the PLR and the NLR of HT patients that received levothyroxine with those who did not receive levothyroxine Results There were no significant differences between patient and control groups in terms of overall leukocyte counts, neutrophil counts, and other laboratory tests. In the patient group lymphocyte counts ...

Effect of emodin on T cell subsets in NOD mice with NaI‑induced experimental autoimmune thyroiditis. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Sep 03;: Authors: Sun H, Ye Z, Li N, Jin F, Yan J, Wu K Abstract Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (CLT), also known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed. To date, only a limited number of agents can effectively suppress thyroiditis development in CLT patients. The aim of the current study was to investigate the protective effect of emodin on experimental autoimmune thyroiditis (EAT) in mice, which is considered an excel...

Conclusion: Increased NLR may be useful as an indicator of the presence of HT, especially in complicated cases. NLR is inexpensive and easy to determine. Larger, prospective studies are required to determine its usefulness in assessing diagnostic potential and treatment outcomes in HT patients.
