Objectives null Subcellular alteration of thyroid hormones (THs) signaling is proposed in many types of cancers. Some studies show deiodinase type 3, as an oncofetal protein, re-expresses in some cancer types. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the product of this enzyme, reverse triiodothyronine (rT3) in serum of newly diagnosed colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. null Methods null In this cross-sectional study, blood from 38 laboratory-confirmed cases was taken, and serum levels of rT3, total T3...
Introduction null Hand grip strength (HGS) has been determined as a simple and cost effective method for evaluating overall skeletal muscle strength and quality. It has been used in numerous clinical studies to examine the association between skeletal muscle and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Previous studies have shown that HGS is significantly associated with mortality and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with T2D. As the prevalence of T2D has seen a steady increase globally, HGS measurement c...
