Abstract

Morning and evening simultaneous fetal and maternal plasma samples were analyzed for thyroid-stimulating hormone. An a.m.-to-p.m. variation in fetal concentrations was identified, whereas the majority of the maternal values (28 of 32) were below the sensitivity of the assay. The importance of this cyclic fetal activity is discussed.
