The relative influences of the putative thyroid stimulator, pregnancy state and non-thyroidal illnesses, were assessed in 52 patients with gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN). In this study biochemical thyroid status was assessed with the aid of thyrotrophin (TSH) measurements by a sensitive immunoradiometric assay and measurement of total and free thyroid hormone concentrations.
