Striking results of leukocyte agglutination test has been observed in the reported case. They suggest that the granulocytic factor involved in this reaction could be in some cases, differentiation membranous antigens. These ones, located(More)
Total serum thyroxine (T4), total serum triidothyronine (T3), thyrotropin (TSH) and TRH induced TSH release have been measured in 50 clinically euthyroid men with alcoolic cirrhosis and compared to 20 age matched control men in order to determine the thyroid status in cirrhosis. Free serum thyroxin (FT4), free triiodothyronine (FT3) and reverse T3 (rT3),(More)
