Résumé : The clinical activities of the department of endocrinology encompass the care and treatment of diabetes, thyroid diseases, hypothalamo-pituitary, adrenal, gonadic and parathyroid diseases, obesity, hypercholesterolemia and paraneoplastic endocrine syndromes. These domains are briefly described. The research activities of the department have investigated the regulation of thyroid metabolism in vitro, the intrathyroid H2O2 generating system, the physiopathology of toxic thyroid nodules and the effects of ageing on the thyreotropic function of the normal ageing male. Studies of "jet lag" conditions have shed a new light on hormonal chronophysiology. Other investigations have considered the regulation of ketone body metabolism, the relationship between nutritional status and glucose metabolism, and some aspects of immunodiabetology.
