ABSTRACT
Is has been shown by numerous animal tests that there is a quantitative and useful separation between the biologic effects of D-thyroxine and L-thyroxine. These animal tests provide a basis for the selection of a dose of D-thyroxine in man which will decrease serum and liver cholesterol concentrations markedly without noticeable calorigenic, cardiac, or toxic effects.

    Triparanol in a daily dose of 250 mg lowered the serum cholesterol level in 102 of 121 patients by an average of 68 mg per cent. The average percentage drop was 19.1 per cent. Nineteen patients showed a rise which averaged 45 mg per cent, while the average percentage increase was 14 per cent....

    During a 25-day period when 8 mg dextro-thyroxine was given daily to patients, the serum was cleared of C14-labeled cholesterol 2 to 3 times as fast, and radioactive CO2 was detected in the expired air in greatly increased quantities, while the total serum cholesterol was reduced from a maximum...

    To investigate the usefulness of thyroglobulin mRNA (Tg-mRNA) detection in peripheral blood in the follow-up of papillary and follicular (differentiated) thyroid cancer, a literature study was performed. Both evidence for and evidence against the usefulness of Tg-mRNA detection were found. Also,...
