The Thyroid

  • Kenneth A. Woeber

Part of the Contemporary Endocrinology book series (COE, volume 2)

Abstract

In the years that have elapsed since the publication of the first volume, some strides have been made in defining certain aspects of the localization, metabolic clearance, and disposition of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). This is due in large part to the increasing availability of improved methods for the radioimmunoassay (RIA) of TRH. A detailed review on all aspects of TRH physiology has recently been published.1
