Nerve growth factor (NGF), which is a neurotrophic factor, is involved in autoimmune and inflammatory processes. Serum NGF levels were investigated in 131 patients with autoimmune (95 with Graves' disease, of whom 57 had ophthalmopathy, 19 with Hashimoto's thyroiditis) and nonimmune thyroid diseases (17 with toxic nodular goitre), and 20 controls.
