To read the full abstract: Thyroid. 2019;29:790–801.Patients with mutations in the dual oxidase 2 (DUOX2 ) gene – encoding a NADPH oxidase that generates hydrogen peroxidase for iodide organification – have been repeatedly reported as not being detected by neonatal screening because it causes only mild hyperthyrotropinemia at birth. Here, Peters et al. determined the incidence of DUOX2 and dual oxidase 2...

To read the full abstract: Radiology 2018:171170Current American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines recommend the application of adult ultrasound criteria to classify thyroid nodules in children and adolescents1. However, few studies have evaluated the sonographic and demographic features that could predict malignancy in a large cohort of young patients with thyroid nodules.</p...

To read the full abstract: Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2020; 117(4): 2187–2193. PMID: 31932420.Since their discovery ~70 years ago, glucocorticoids (GC) have been widely used to elicit a systemic anti-inflammatory response, and currently play a major role in the treatment of asthma and other inflammatory diseases (1). However, unresponsiveness to GC in some individuals i...

Brief summary: This genome-wide association study (GWAS) reports the first genetic loci for risk of primary aldosteronism. New candidate genes and their potential mechanisms for the development of aldosterone excess are described.Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most frequent form of secondary hypertension (5% of patients with hypertension in primary care and 10–20% of patients with hypertension referred to specialist care). PA is associated with c...
