Prognostic value of an increase in the serum thyroglobulin level at the time of the first ablative radioiodine treatment in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic factors for treatment efficacy, and in particular the increase in serum thyroglobulin (Tg) level at the time of the first ablative radioiodine treatment, in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC).
