1. Quantitative assessment of thyroid-to-background ratio improves the interobserver reliability of technetium-99m sestamibi thyroid scintigraphy for investigation of amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis.

    Nuclear Medicine Communications 36(4):356 (2015) PMID 25569865

    Amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) is caused by excessive hormone synthesis and release (AIT I), a destructive thyroiditis (AIT II), or a combination of both (AIT Ind). Although no gold-standard diagnostic test is available, technetium-99m sestamibi thyroid scintigraphy (Tc-STS) has been pr...

  7. Effects of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin d3 and vitamin d 3 on the expression of the vitamin d receptor in human skeletal muscle cells.

    Calcified Tissue International 96(3):256 (2015) PMID 25479835

    Vitamin D receptor (VDR) expression and action in non-human skeletal muscle have recently been reported in several studies, yet data on the activity and expression of VDR in human muscle cells are scarce. We conducted a series of studies to examine the (1) effect of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,2...
  8. Does population density and neighborhood deprivation predict schizophrenia? A nationwide Swedish family-based study of 2.4 million individuals.

    Schizophrenia Bulletin 41(2):494 (2015) PMID 25053652 PMCID PMC4332947

    People living in densely populated and socially disorganized areas have higher rates of psychiatric morbidity, but the potential causal status of such factors is uncertain. We used nationwide Swedish longitudinal registry data to identify all children born 1967-1989 (n = 2361585), including sepa...
  9. Randomized trial of nicotine lozenges and phone counseling for smokeless tobacco cessation.

    Nicotine & Tobacco Research 17(3):309 (2015) PMID 25168034

    Relatively few treatment programs have been developed specifically for smokeless tobacco (ST) users who want to quit. Their results suggest that self-help materials, telephone counseling, and nicotine lozenges are efficacious. This study provides the first direct examination of the separate and ...

  11. Levels of drug and antidrug antibodies are associated with outcome of interventions after loss of response to infliximab or adalimumab.

    Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology 13(3):522 (2015) PMID 25066837

    There is controversy about whether levels of anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and antidrug antibodies (ADAs) are accurate determinants of loss of response to therapy. We analyzed the association between trough levels of anti-TNF agents or ADAs and outcomes of interventions for patients with loss...
