Thyroid, porcine is a naturally-occurring peptide hormone, dried and powdered thyroid glands from pigs containing tiiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) used to supplement low or absent thyroid activity.
<0.001 EU per 1 μg of the peptide by the LAL method
Replacement or supplemental therapy in hypothyroidism; TSH suppression (in thyroid cancer, nodules, goiters, and enlargement in chronic thyroiditis); diagnostic agent to differentiate suspected hyperthyroidism from euthyroidism.
Examples of Clinical Use:
Hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer, nodules, goiters, and enlargement
Levothyroxine replacement therapy has three main goals. These are (i) to provide resolution of the patients' symptoms and hypothyroid signs, including biological and physiologic markers of hypothyroidism, (ii) to achieve normalization of serum thyrotropin with improvement in thyroid hormone concentrations, and (iii) to avoid overtreatment (iatrogenic thyrotoxicosis), especially in the elderly.
Mechanism of action:
It replaces the depleted thyroid hormones in patients with hypothyroidism.
