Spencer CA, Petrovic I, Fatemi S and LoPresti JS. Serum Thyroglobulin (Tg) Monitoring of Patients with Differentiated Thyroid Cancer using Sensitive (Second-Generation) Immunometric assays (Tg2GIMA) can be disrupted by False-Negative and False-Positive Serum Thyroglobulin Autoantibody (TgAb). JCEM 99(12):4589, 2014. PMID: 25226290 PMCID: PMC4297889

Spencer C, Petrovic I, Fatemi S. Current thyroglobulin autoantibody (TgAb) assays often fail to detect interfering TgAb that can result in the reporting of falsely low/undetectable serum Tg IMA values for patients with differentiated thyroid cancer.
