Régimen Block-Replace / Régimen de bloqueo y reemplazo
Explanation:
Hola cymbeline

"Block-Replace" es el nombre de un tratamiento para el hipertiroidismo que consiste en bloquear completamente la actividad de la glándula tiroides (gral.mente con carbimazol) y administrar terapia de reemplazo hormonal (con tiroxina), dado que la glándula está bloqueada y el pte. tendría, si no, hipotiroidismo.

"Block-Replace" se podría dejar sin traducir (no hay traducción "oficial", que yo sepa), o bien traducir como "bloqueo y reemplazo".

Nineteen randomised trials involving 2233 participants were included. Overall the quality of trials as reported was poor; specifically in terms of allocation concealment, assessor blinding and loss to follow-up. Four trials examined the effect of duration of therapy on relapse rates of Graves' hyperthyroidism. In one trial using the Titration regimen, longer duration therapy (18 months) had significantly fewer relapses (37% vs 58%) than six month therapy (Odds ratio (OR) = 0.42, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.18 to 0.96). In one quasi-randomised trial using the **Block-Replace regimen**, there was no significant difference between the six and 12 month (relapses rates 41% versus 35%) arms of the study. Extending the duration of therapy to over 18 months was not associated with improved relapse rates (Peto OR = 0.75, 95% CI 0.39 to 1.43). Ten trials examined the effect of **Block-Replace** versus Titration regime.....

Antithyroid drugs are commonly used as first-line treatment for Graves' disease, but the optimum regimen for inducing remission remains unclear. We gave the **block-replace regimen** of carbimazole plus thyroxine to 100 patients for 6 or 12 months, to determine whether prolonged treatment is associated with fewer relapses....
