143. Selenium supplementation for Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Selenium supplementation for Hashimoto's thyroiditis. BACKGROUND: Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a common auto-immune disorder. The most common presenting symptoms may include anxiety, negative mood, depression, dry skin, cold intolerance, puffy eyes, muscle cramps and fatigue, deep voice, constipation, slow thinking and poor memory. Clinical manifestations of the disease are defined primarily by low levels of thyroid hormones; therefore it is treated by hormone replacement therapy, which usually (...) consists of levothyroxine (LT4). Selenium might reduce antibody levels and result in a decreased dosage of LT4 and may provide other beneficial effects (e.g. on mood and health-related quality of life). OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of selenium supplementation on Hashimoto's thyroiditis. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the following databases up to 2 October 2012: CENTRAL in The Cochrane Library (2012, Issue 10), MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Web of Science; we also screened reference lists of included studies

149. Progress in molecular-based management of differentiated thyroid cancer.

Progress in molecular-based management of differentiated thyroid cancer. Substantial developments have occurred in the past 5-10 years in clinical translational research of thyroid cancer. Diagnostic molecular markers, such as RET-PTC, RAS, and BRAF(V600E) mutations; galectin 3; and a new gene expression classifier, are outstanding examples that have improved diagnosis of thyroid nodules. BRAF mutation is a prognostic genetic marker that has improved risk stratification and hence tailored (...) management of patients with thyroid cancer, including those with conventionally low risks. Novel molecular-targeted treatments hold great promise for radioiodine-refractory and surgically inoperable thyroid cancers as shown in clinical trials; such treatments are likely to become a component of the standard treatment regimen for patients with thyroid cancer in the near future. These novel molecular-based management strategies for thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer are the most exciting developments

Relevant studies may have been missed and there were limitations in the meta-analysis. The conclusions appear optimistic; summary estimates seemed to indicate that ultrasonography may be useful to confirm cervical lymph node metastases but not adequate for rule-out.

153. Selumetinib-enhanced radioiodine uptake in advanced thyroid cancer.

Selumetinib-enhanced radioiodine uptake in advanced thyroid cancer. BACKGROUND: Metastatic thyroid cancers that are refractory to radioiodine (iodine-131) are associated with a poor prognosis. In mouse models of thyroid cancer, selective mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway antagonists increase the expression of the sodium-iodide symporter and uptake of iodine. Their effects in humans are not known. METHODS: We conducted a study to determine whether the MAPK kinase (MEK) 1 and MEK2 (...) inhibitor selumetinib (AZD6244, ARRY-142886) could reverse refractoriness to radioiodine in patients with metastatic thyroid cancer. After stimulation with thyrotropin alfa, dosimetry with iodine-124 positron-emission tomography (PET) was performed before and 4 weeks after treatment with selumetinib (75 mg twice daily). If the second iodine-124 PET study indicated that a dose of iodine-131 of 2000 cGy or more could be delivered to the metastatic lesion or lesions, therapeutic radioiodine

155. Thyroid hormones for acute kidney injury.

Thyroid hormones for acute kidney injury. BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI), which is common in hospitalised patients, is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite recent advances in treatment, AKI outcomes have not changed substantially during the past four decades, and incidence is increasing. There is an urgent need to explore novel therapeutic agents and revisit some older drugs to review their roles in the management of AKI. Although thyroid hormone therapy has shown (...) promise in experimental animal studies, clinical efficacy and safety have not been systematically assessed for the management of people with AKI. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the benefits and harms of thyroid hormones for the treatment of hospitalised adults with AKI of any aetiology. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Renal Group's Specialised Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE, and EMBASE. We also checked the reference lists of retrieved studies and articles.Date of search: November 2012 SELECTION CRITERIA
