oa South African Medical Journal - Serum protein-bound iodine (PBI) in thyroid disease
(Concluded from page 773.) The significance of the blood iodine, the proteinbound fraction (PBI) of which appears to be identical with the thyroid hormone, is discussed, and the results recorded in 60 patients and 10 normal subjects. An attempt has also been made to correlate these findings with the basal metabolic rate and the radioactive iodine uptake where these studies were also carried out.
