This paper is an extension of investigations started by the League of Nations regarding the standardization and assay of the potency of thyrotropic hormone. Most of the methods which have been published were subjected to statistical analysis, but, unfortunately, histometric technics were not included. The author concludes that assay by means of the weight of the thyroid is the most suitable of those compared. The paper is written in Danish but includes an adequate English summary.
