Introduction: thyroglobulin in thyroid hormone homeostasis The two thyroid hormones (TH) 3,5,3',5'-tetraiodo- l -thyronine (T4) and 3,3′,5-triiodo- l -thyronine (T3) are crucial for human metabolism and development ( 1 , 2 ). T4 is produced

Introduction In the follow-up of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC), thyroglobulin (Tg) is a well-recognized tumor marker, and therefore, highly accurate Tg measurements are crucial ( 1 ). However, current immunoassays can

cellularity or unsatisfying sampling precludes diagnosis in up to 20% of specimens, depending on the cytopathologist’s experience and skill [ 9 , 10 ]. Measurement of thyroglobulin in the washout of fine needle aspiration (FNA-Tg) has been used as an

Introduction Thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb), frequently found in healthy individuals, are serological markers of both Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) and Graves’ disease (GD) [ 1 ]. In papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), the rate of TgAb

thyroglobulin antibodies (Tg-Ab) are the hallmarks of autoimmune hypothyroidism ( 3 ). Hypothyroidism is a concern in women who become pregnant, because of the association with adverse outcomes of pregnancy and child development ( 4 , 5 ). The adverse effects

Introduction Thyroglobulin (Tg) is a thyroid-specific protein, and its serum levels are useful for monitoring patients with differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTCs) who underwent total thyroidectomy. However, anti-Tg antibodies (TgAb) are

UIC is highly influenced by recent iodine intake, it can only be used to determine iodine status for populations and not for individuals [ 9 ]. Serum thyroglobulin (Tg) may also be a suitable marker of the current iodine status in a population
