Approved Research

Relationship between autoimmune thyroid disease and risk factors.

Principal Investigator: Dr Bing Han
Approved Research ID: 91930
Approval date: October 21st 2022

Lay summary

Aims: To study the risk factors of autoimmune thyroid disease(AITD) as well as the interaction between these risk factors in the pathogenesis of AITD.

Scientific rationale: As we known, genetic factors and environment factors contributed to etiology of AITD. However, which is more important and the interaction between genetic and environment factors are still largely unknown.

Project duration: three years.

Public health impact: We could better understand the etiology of AITD. Furthermore, subjects with genetic susceptibility should be carefully evaluated to avoid possible environment factors.
