Background: This study was conducted to compare the staging systems for the prediction of long-term disease status in patients with well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma (WDTC), and to find out the earliest postoperative period predictor of long-term persistence/recurrence of disease. Methods: Patients with WDTC (n = 356; Mage = 41.5 ± 12.7 years) followed for at least five years (12.3 ± 5.0 years) after thyroidectomy and 131I remnant ablation at a tertiary regional hospital in Taiwan were retro...

The role of high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) has been demonstrated in stroke and coronary artery disease but not in peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). The pathogenesis of HMGB1 in acute and chronic vascular injury is also not well understood. We hypothesized that HMGB1 induces inflammatory markers in diabetic PAOD patients. We studied 36 diabetic patients, including 29 patients with PAOD, who had undergone amputation for diabetic foot and 7 nondiabetic patients who had undergone ampu...

Abstract Aims Anemia is prevalent but under-recognized in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Genetic variants in angiotensin-converting enzyme ( ACE ), tumor necrosis factor-alpha ( TNF-α ) and erythropoietin ( EPO ) have been associated with diabetic nephropathy. In the present study, we investigated the associations between anemia and polymorphisms in EPO promoter (rs1617640), TNF-α G-308A and ACE Insertion/Deletion in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods Polymorphisms in ACE , TN...

From January 1987 to December 2011, over a total of 25 years, 84 patients with Cushing’s syndrome (CS) were identified at a medical center in southern Taiwan. We observed a higher incidence of ACTH-independent CS (75%) than ACTH-dependent CS (25%). A higher incidence of adrenocortical adenoma (58.3%) than Cushing’s disease (CD, 21.4%) was also found. The sensitivity of the definitive diagnostic tests for CS, including loss of plasma cortisol circadian rhythm, a baseline 24 h urinary free cortiso...

Abstract Introduction Glutathione appears to have apparent antioxidant activity to counter regulate hyperglycemia induced oxidative stress. Adiponectin also plays a role in the suppression of the metabolic derangements in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of this study was to determine whether blood glucose fluctuations can alter blood levels of glutathione and adiponectin. Methods We enrolled 34 patients with type 2 DM. As a measure of short-term glycemic variability, the mean amplitude of...

Background: For patients with Graves’ disease (GD), the primary goal of antithyroid drug therapy is to temporarily restore the patient to the euthyroid state and wait for a subsequent remission of the disease. This study sought to identify the predictive markers for the relapse of disease. Methods: To do this, we studied 262 GD patients with long enough follow-up after drug withdrawal to determine treatment outcome. The patients were divided into three groups by time of relapse: early relapse gr...

Summary Background The aim of this study was to identify the prognostic factors of long-term survival and optimal therapeutic protocol for patients with distant metastasis secondary to differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Methods A retrospective review of 1665 patients with DTC treated at a regional tertiary hospital in Taiwan between 1986 and 2010 was performed. Among them, 207 patients were found to have distant metastasis. For a long-term outcome survey, 126 patients that had received at l...
