Two weeks after treatment initiation, we found strong anti-TSH receptor antibody (TRAb) and anti-thyroid-stimulating antibody positivity (Table 2).
Additionally, measurement of TRAbs, determination of high radioactive iodine uptake and/or diffuse uptake at thyroid scintigraphy were performed in some patients.6 All ATD treatment data was recorded from medical documents.
Before operation, the patient's thyroid was normal without abnormal findings of thyroid ultrasonography, thyroid function tests (triiodothyronine, thyroxine, free triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, and hypersensitive thyrotropin), thyroid globulin, and relative thyroid antibodies (thyroglobulin antibody, thyroperoxidase antibody, TRAb).

Antithyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb) were negative (<40 IU/mL), and TSH-receptor autoantibodies (TRAb) were markedly increased at 40 IU/L (<1.8 IU/L).
This time the popular Trimm Trab Adidas shoe is the footwear that features a Liverpool design.
A retrospective analysis of a stored blood sample taken before the first plasma exchange showed elevated TRAbs. Sonography revealed thyroidal hyperperfusion, and pertechnetate uptake was increased upon scintigraphy.
Graves' disease is an autoimmune thyroid disease caused by the binding of stimulating antibodies against TSH receptors (TRAbs) to TSH receptors on thyroid cells.
Laces Out took place at Camp and Furnace in the Baltic Triangle yesterday and saw row upon row of rare trabs up for grabs.
In the cases of Graves thyrotoxicosis, measurement of anti-TSH receptor antibodies (TRAbs) is important for diagnosis, as the authors discussed.
Thyroid anti-microsomal antibodies (also known as thyroid peroxidase antibodies or TPO antibodies) are increased in most (80-90%) patients with Graves disease, and thyroid hormone receptor antibodies (TRAbs) are increased in ~80% or more of patients (25, 28).
Hyperthyroidism in Graves disease is attributable to autoantibodies to the thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor (TSHR), and measurement of these TSHR autoantibodies (TRAbs) can be useful in disease diagnosis and management (1-4).
