Aims and objectives

  • Endocrinological diseases in ischemic heart disease and heart failure
  • Autonomous nervous system dysfunction in stress, studies in chronic disease (ischemic heart disease, diabetes), work place situations.
  • Autonomous nervous system: measurement
  • Thyroid disease, autoimmune modulation
  • Thyroid disease: studies on combination therapy with T4+T3
  • Immune therapy in cancer: effect on thyroid function
