BACKGROUND
Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma has grave prognosis with most patient dying within 6 months of diagnosis. 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors have been reported to have an anticancer effect in experimental and clinical studies. In this study, we investigated the effect of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors on cell growth, invasiveness, adherence and signal transduction to evaluate the possibility of simvastatin as an agent for treatment of thyroid cancer. METHODS: The viability of simvastatin treated 3 thyroid cancer cell lines (FRO, WRO, and ARO) were determined. We evaluated the cell migration, anchorage-independent growth and invasion ability in anaplastic thyroid cell line. The expression and phosphorylation of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) and extracellular signal-regurated kinase (ERK) were determined by immunoblot analysis. RESULTS: Three thyroid cancer cell lines showed concentration dependent decrease of viability after treatment with 100~200 mM of simvastatin. Anaplastic ARO cell line showed the most predominant decrease in viability. In ARO cell lines, cell migration was decreased by concentration dependent manner after treatment with simvastatin (concentration > or = 5 mM). Anchorage independent colony formation also decreased after simvastatin (> or = 10 mM). Finally, immunoblot analysis revealed that the phosphorylation status of FAK and ERK decreased in time dependent manner following treatment with 10 mM of simvastatin. CONCLUSION: The results of this study suggest that simvstatin exerts a favorable effect on the progression and metastasis of thyroid cancer. However, further studies are needed to elucidate the related mechanisms and signal transductions prior to its therapeutic application.

AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
Painless thyroiditis is characterized by painless, destructive inflammation of the thyroid gland. Although thyroid autoantibodies are frequently detected in patients suffering from this condition, the clinical significance of these antibodies is not well understood. Therefore, this study was conducted to investigate the relationship between thyroid function and thyroid autoantibodies in painless thyroiditis according to clinical course. METHODS: Patients proven to have painless thyroiditis were retrospectively included in this study. We analyzed their clinical features, thyroid function and titers of thyroid autoantibodies according to clinical course, which was divided into three phases; thyrotoxic, hypothyroid and recovery. RESULTS: Of the 21 patients included in this study, 2 were male and 19 were female. During the thyrotoxic phase, the mean free T4 concentration was 4.03 (2~6.8) ng/mL and the mean concentration of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) was 0.02 (0.01~0.07) U/mL. In addition, the titer of antithyroglobulin antibody and antithyroid peroxidase antibody was 298 (4.8~995) U/mL and 3318 (0.1~25280) U/mL, respectively during this phase. During the hypothyroid phase, the mean TSH was 16.3 (4.3-49.5) U/mL and was found to be positively correlated with the level of free T4 observed during the thyrotoxic phase (r = 0.523, P = 0.031). During the recovery phase, the titer of antithyroglobulin antibody was significantly reduced to 180 (38~487) U/mL when compared with the titer taken during the thyrotoxic phase (P = 0.016). Additionally, during the hypothyroid phase, patients found to have antithyroid peroxidase antibody had a higher titer of TSH than those that did not (23.9 (6.5~49.5) vs. 11.2 (5.3~18.2) U/mL, P = 0.004). CONCLUSION: The titer of free T4 and the presence of antithyroid peroxidase observed during the thyrotoxic phase were related to the titer of TSH during hypothyroid phase. Additionally, the titer of antithyroglobulin antibody was significantly reduced during the recovery phase.

AbstractAbstract PDF
BACKGROUND
Pulse wave velocity (PWV) correlates with arterial distensibility and stiffness and is a useful method for evaluating the severity of systemic atherosclerosis in adults. Brachial-ankle PWV (baPWV) is affected by many different factors such as age, systolic blood pressure (SBP), sex, body mass index, waist to hip ratio, and HbA1c. We evaluated the determinants of baPWV in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS: The study included 803 type 2 diabetic patients over age 30 who had their ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) and baPWV measured at Busan St. Mary's Medical Center, Busan, Korea. Anthropometric parameters, blood pressure, pulse pressure, fasting plasma glucose, fasting insulin, HbA1c, lipid profile, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), and microalbuminuria were checked concurrently. We also investigated tobacco and alcohol use by means of questionnaire. We then retrospectively analyzed the relationships between baPWV and various risk factors. RESULTS: Differences between men and women were measured using the independence sample probate. Pearson correlation analysis confirmed the factors affecting the baPWV as follows: SBP, diastolic blood pressure, pulse pressure, age, waist circumference, gender, and duration of diabetes mellitus were positively correlated, and height and weight were negatively correlated. On aged-adjusted partial correlation, HbA1c, SBP, diastolic blood pressure, and pulse pressure were correlated. By multiple linear regression analysis, SBP, age, HbA1c, and weight were independent predictors of baPWV. CONCLUSION: The baPWV is principally affected by SBP and age in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma is an uncommon neoplasm. However, the incidence of primary CNS lymphoma has increased more than 10-fold over the past three decades, and continues to accelerate. Currently, primary CNS lymphoma represents 4 to 7 percent of all newly diagnosed primary CNS tumors. Primary CNS lymphoma may arise from different parts of the brain, with deep hemispheric periventricular white matter being the most common site of origin. The presenting symptoms in primary CNS lymphoma vary depending on the location of the mass. Involvement of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis may cause hypopituitarism, diabetes insipidus, headache, diplopia, and blurred vision.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is characterized by the combined occurrence of primary hyperparathyroidism, enteropancreatic tumors and anterior pituitary adenoma. Yet carcinoid tumors, adrenal adenoma and lipoma might exist simultaneously. Thymic carcinoid tumors, which are recognized as one of the causes of death for patients with MEN 1, are uncommon and their natural history has barely been investigated.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Carcinoma Showing Thymus-Like Differentiation (CASTLE) is a very rare malignant neoplasm of the thyroid, and this resembles lymphoepithelioma or squamous cell carcinoma of the thymus. It originates from ectopic thymic tissue or remnants of the branchial pouches. We recently experienced a case of CASTLE in the thyroid gland of a 61-year-old woman. She presented with an asymptomatic mass in the right thyroid gland and she was diagnosed with 'poorly differentiated carcinoma' of the thyroid by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Total thyroidectomy was performed for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Histologic examination of the resected tumor showed that the tumor was lobulated with expanding fibrous bands, and it was infiltrated by lymphocytes and plasma cells. The tumor cells had oval, large vesicular nuclei and prominent nucleoli, and the immunohistochemical staining was positive for CD5 and bcl-2, so the patient was diagnosed with thyroid CASTLE. We report here on a case of CASTLE in the thyroid gland treated by surgery and external neck radiation therapy.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is a hereditary disorder that's characterized by the female phenotype in spite of the 46, XY karyotype, and this is caused by mutation of the androgen receptor gene. We experienced a case of the complete type of AIS. A 20-yr-old woman was evaluated for primary amenorrhea. The patient had external genitalia of the female phenotype, but she had no ovaries or uterus. The abdominal computed tomography scan revealed suspected testes in the pelvic cavity. The chromosome analysis was reported as 46, XY. We identified an androgen receptor gene novel mutation, including CAT deletion at the position 1925~1927 and AG deletion at the position 2129~2130 of exon 5, in both the proband and her sister. The patient underwent laparoscopic gonadectomy due to the possibility of malignant tumor developing in the testes. The subject is now on estrogen supplementation and she is under regular follow-up; she is in a good condition.
