CitationIs placental iodine content related to dietary iodine intake? 2011, 75 (2):261-4 Clin. Endocrinol. (Oxf)
AbstractDelivery of iodine to the foetus depends not only on maternal dietary iodine intake but also on the presence of a functioning placental transport system. A role for the placenta as an iodine storage organ has been suggested, and this study compares the iodine content of placentas from women giving birth at term in Ireland and Iran, areas with median urinary iodine of 79 and 206 μg/l respectively.
