Why is UniCAP TG not included in NEQAS?

TG antibodies are not included any more because NEQAS has the opinion that measuring TPO alone is sufficient and TG doesn't add any further information. Therefore TG is almost not measured any more in the UK.

This is the general international opinion of most of the opinion leaders. However, there are still some hints in the literature, that TG Abs is a valid marker.
