Listed below are 18 research papers written in 2010 that deal with a variety of thyroid gland topics of issues of clinical importance in cats.
These range from the investigations of thyroid ultrasonography (1) to thyroid scintigraphy for hyper- or hypothyroidism (2,6,12); from studies of iodine metabolism in the normal and hyperthyroid cat (4,15) to investigation of G protein activation in the pathogenesis of feline hyperthyroidism (13); from thyroid carcinoma (5) to studies of the use of serum T4 and TSH measurements in the diagnosis and monitoring of thyroid disease (10,14,11,16-18); and from reports of spontaneous feline hypothyroidism (2,7) to investigations of the effect of hypothyroidism on renal function in cats (8,16-18).
