Efficacy and mechanism of thyroxine treatment on pregnancy and neonatal outcomes in women with thyroid antibodies: a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multi-centre trial - The TABLET (Thyroid AntiBodies and LEvoThyroxine) trial

About 10 per cent of women of child-bearing age have thyroid antibodies, which can more than double the risks of miscarriage and preterm birth. Preliminary evidence has suggested that giving such women thyroxine tablets may halve the risk of miscarriages and preterm births. This project will conduct a large-scale, high-quality study to measure markers of the immune response in the mother as well as in the placenta obtained after delivery, with live birth beyond 34 weeks of gestation as the primary outcome. The aim is to offer clinicians the evidence they need to use thyroxine treatment routinely.
