• serum
  • The purpose of this study is to determine [for patients with previously treated well-differentiated thyroid cancer and evidence of residual disease based on serum thyroglobulin (Tg) level] whether positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) fusion scanning performed after recombinant TSH (rTSH, thyrotropin alfa for injection) will be more sensitive for the detection of disease sites than PET-CT scanning without rTSH.

  • patients
  • Background Hypothyroidism has a higher prevalence in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients 1 and thyrotropin (TSH) receptor is widely expressed in human tissues 2 , included the skin 3 and the aorta 4 . (bmj.com)
  • neonatal
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the blood concentration of thyrotropin (TSH) observed at neonatal screening of infants with DS and its possible association with development of hypothyroidism during childhood. (diva-portal.org)
  • levels
  • Upon binding circulating thyrotropin, a G-protein signal cascade activates adenylyl cyclase and intracellular levels of cAMP rise. (wikipedia.org)
  • role
  • Further confirmatory analyses are needed to establish the role of thyrotropin in systemic sclerosis pathogenesis. (bmj.com)
