measurement in the follow-up of patients treated for differentiated thyroid cancer.
Thyroidectomy, postoperative iodine ablation, thyroxine replacement and careful follow up with serum thyroglobulin
levels are associated with fewer cancer recurrences and tumour related deaths (9).
The utility of serum thyroglobulin
measurement at the time of remnant ablation for predicting disease-free status in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer: A meta-analysis involving 3947 patients.
Generally, total body scan negative with low stimulated thyroglobulin
is an excellent prognostic sign.
Predictive value for disease progression of serum thyroglobulin
levels measured in the postoperative period and after (131)I ablation therapy in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer.
36) Another study compared 124I PET-CT with FDG PET-CT in patients with elevated thyroglobulin
but negative ultrasonography and found the sensitivities for WDTC detection to be 80% and 70%, respectively.
Negative staining for keratin, thyroglobulin
and positive staining for endothelial cell markers (CD31, CD34, Faktor VIII, Ulex europaeus) in immunohistochemical examinations differentiates it from anaplastic (undifferentiated) carcinoma of the thyroid (2).
Induction of autoimmunity in good and poor responder mice with mouse thyroglobulin
The needle wash specimen revealed an intact PTH level of 29,994 pg/ml (Control <30 pg/ml) and a thyroglobulin
level of less than 0.
In the patients who underwent bilateral total thyroidectomy, serum thyroglobulin
was less than one nanogram per milliliter in 42 patients (93.
It is known as a multiligand molecule and such proteins as lipoprotein lipase (LPL), Neurotensin 3 (NT3), Receptor associated protein (RAP), proNGF, and thyroglobulin
are among its potential ligands (2, 3-5).
4]) >70 pmol/L (normal, 10-20 pmol/L); negative antithyroid peroxidase and antithyroglobulin antibodies; normal complete blood count, calcium, and alkaline phosphatase; and low levels of thyroglobulin
