The ThyPRO quality of life measure had good responsiveness and was able to detect treatment for benign thyroid diseases, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Torquil Watt, MD, PhD, of the department of endocrinology at Copenhagen University Hospital Rigshospitalet in Denmark, and colleagues evaluated 435 people undergoing treatment using the ThyPRO, a patient-reported outcomes measure, and SF-36 Health Survey at baseline and 6 months following treatment initiation to determine responsiveness of thyroid-related quality of life (QoL).
