TCS exposure has been associated with decreased thyroid hormone levels in animals, but human studies are scarce and controversial. Objective: We evaluated the association between maternal TCS exposure and thyroid hormone levels of mothers and newborns. Methods: TCS was measured by high-performance liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) in urine samples collected during gestational weeks 38.8±1.1 from 398 pregnant women in a prospective birth cohort enrolled in 2012–2013 in Shanghai, China. Maternal serum levels of free thyroxine (FT4), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), and thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb) were obtained from medical records. Cord blood levels of free triiodothyronine (FT3), FT4, TSH, and TPOAb were measured. Multiple linear and logistic regression models were used to examine the relationship between matern...
