In contrast, Liu et al (24) found that thyroid stiffness was weakly related to TSH and TGAb and was not correlated with T3, T4 or TPOAb.
TSH, TPOAb and TgAb levels were significantly decreased in patients treated with the combined myo-inositol/selenium after six months.
The positive rates of TPOAb and TgAb of pregnant women in the observation group were higher than in the control group (P<0.05).
There was a positive correlation between thyroid volume and serum fT4, fT3, TRAb, TPOAb, and TgAb levels (p=0.001, r=0.426; p=0.001, r=0.50; p=0.04, r=0.26; p=0.001, r=0.42; p=0.001 r=0.42; respectively; Table 3).
Currently, most of the studies concerning the thyroid tissue and CVR focused on thyroid hormones (i.e., TSH, [FT.sub.3], and [FT.sub.4]) instead of the direct role of thyroid autoimmunity (i.e., TPOAb positivity and TgAb positivity).

TgAb and TPOAb were determined by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) using Roche ECLusys Anti-Tg and Anti-TPO (Roche Diagnostics GmbH, Mannheim, Germany).

TgAb assessment should be concomitantly performed with Tg (1-3) and, if detected, a TG method resistant to TgAb should be used (3).
The performance indicators to study the effects of such interventions used the following ratios of the requests for related tests: AST to alanine transaminase (AST/ALT); AGA to antitissue transglutaminase antibodies (AGA/anti-tTG), TgAb to antithyroid peroxidase antibodies (TgAb/TPOAb),TBIL/ALT, GGT/ALT, iron to ferritin, FT4 to thyroid-stimulating hormone (FT4/TSH), ESR to C-reactive protein (ESR/CRP), and urea to creatinine.
Antibodies against TPO (TPOAb) and Tg (TgAb) are able to cause destruction of thyroid cells due to antibody dependent cell cytotoxicity.
