Abstract

In the 1970s Mick Statham and I undertook some studies in a group of
goitrous horses resident on a well known equine stud in Northern Tasmania. Our
major work was associated with measuring circulating plasma thyroid hormone
levels of triiodothyronine, thyroxine and thyroid stimulating hormone along with
radioactive 131-Iodine thyroid uptakes in several of the horses who presented
with a palpable or visible goitre. The study was duly completed, however an opportunity arose to measure the
plasma circulating, thyroid hormones in a newly born foal over time following
a cord blood sample directly after birth. This was to be of major interest in the
preliminary studies which I progressed in the development of neonatal screening
in 1977.
