Thyrogen How to Take

Thyrogen (Thyrotropin) alfa belongs to the class of medications called human Thyroid stimulating hormones. It is used with radioactive iodine to treat people with thyroid cancer who have had most or all of their thyroid gland removed without spreading of the cancer to other parts of the body.

It is also used as an additional diagnostic tool, with or without radioactive iodine, for testing for thyroglobulin (Tg) in the blood in people with thyroid cancer.

Thyrogen (Thyrotropin) alfa is a man-made hormone that acts the same way as the naturally-occurring thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in the body. It works by making the thyroid cells in the body produce Tg, absorb radioactive iodine, and remove thyroid tissue left over after surgery.

People who have had surgery to remove their thyroid glands because of thyroid cancer need regular checkups to ensure the cancer is still gone. Testing the blood for Tg is one way to do this. The detection of Tg indicates the presence of thyroid cells or thyroid cancer cells.
