Introduction In clinical trials, questionnaires about health-related quality of life (HRQL) are increasingly used as outcomes for evaluating impact of health on patients' lives and effect of treatment [ 1 , 2 ]. Traditionally, HRQL data has

different methods of Tg-Ab measurements showed only a 65% concordance between assays [ 11 ] and handling of problems with Tg-Ab interference in clinical practice remains controversial. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the s-Tg and s
