Analysis of thyroid peroxidase antibody in early pregnancy
“Analysis of thyroid peroxidase antibody in early pregnancy”, vol. 13, pp. 5107-5114, 2014.,
This study aimed to investigate the thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb) positive rate and how TPOAb affects thyroid function between 7 and 12 weeks of gestation. Six hundred and eleven cases of healthy primipara were enrolled in this study between September 2010 and June 2011, and all of them were given a regular prenatal check in Beijing Friendship Hospital. By detecting the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxine (FT4), and TPOAb between 7 to 12 weeks gestation, we developed an early thyroid function normal reference interval during pregnancy.
