an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles, published in 2019–2020, focused on thyroid disease! Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

Groeneweg and colleagues discuss in Endocrine Reviews recent important gains in understanding of thyroid hormone transporters, where Cabanillas and colleagues describe new-generation targeted therapies for thyroid cancer. In the same journal, Virili and coauthors discuss the common problem of gastrointestinal malabsorption of therapeutic oral T4.

In Endocrinology, Houbrechts and coauthors established that in zebrafish, knockouts for the major thyroid hormone-activating enzyme have only transient hyperglycemia, which is of interest in light of the known association of inactivating mutations in the enzyme with type 2 diabetes in humans and mice. Ruis and coauthors established that in rats, polybrominated diphenyl ethers affected thyroid hormone levels in the dam and in the placenta in a sex-specific manner; they also cited some human evidence of a disrupting effect.

In JCEM, Grani and coauthors discuss the circumstances in which repeated neck ultrasound might be needed for thyroid cancer patients with no evidence of disease. Yan and colleagues document a worrisome increase in the incidence of all types of thyroid cancer in California, using state registry data. Barres et al. establish in a retrospective study that stimulated thyroglobulin and thyroglobulin reduction index can predict long-term remission in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer.

In JES, Gammons and colleagues analyze referrals to pediatric endocrinologists for elevated thyroid stimulating hormone, concluding that elevations slightly above the reference range should not in themselves justify referral. Silva de Morais and coauthors conclude that Hashimoto thyroiditis increases the risk of malignancy in patients presenting for nodule evaluation. And Calsolaro and colleagues discuss the challenges of treating hypothyroidism in the elderly.
