The Thyroid and Metabolism: The Action Continues
Receptors, Thyroid Hormone
On March 27, 2008, the American Thyroid Association sponsored a research summit on the Thyroid and Metabolism. The goals of the summit were to explore emerging new concepts and potential therapies arising from recent insights into the action of thyroid hormone signaling. New advances have identified functions previously thought to be distinct from thyroid hormone signaling pathways and suggest new avenues of therapy for metabolic disease.
