Improvement of chronic idiopathic urticaria with L-thyroxine: a new TSH role in immune response?

, : Improvement of chronic idiopathic urticaria with L-thyroxine: a new TSH role in immune response?. Allergy 60(4): 489-493

Background: The association between chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) and autoimmune thyroiditis (AT) is known, as well as major prevalence of antithyroid antibodies in the allergical subjects and other autoimmune diseases. We have evaluated the effects of L-thyroxine on clinical symptoms of CIU in AT patients suggesting the hypothesis of a new thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) role in immune system.

The utility of flow mediated dilation (FMD) a measure of endothelial function is limited by operator dependence. Pulse amplitude tonometry (PAT) is a novel, less operator-dependent technique to assess endothelial function. This study compares PAT...

We studied interactions between propranolol and nitrates, used in subjects with stable angina pectoris on effort. Basal pharmacokinetic indexes were estimated on measured levels of propranolol concentration. It was found, that nitrates used with p...

Nummular headache is a coin-shaped, chronic cephalalgia usually considered to stem from epicranial tissues. We describe a patient complaining of circumscribed pain in the head as the only symptom of a subtentorial meningioma. This observation und...
