PECULIARITIES OF HYPOTHALAMIC-PITUITARY THYROID FUNCTION IN CHILDREN BORN FROM THE CHORNOBYL NPP ACCIDENT SURVIVIORS
Summary. The 168 children born to parents exposed after the Chernobyl accident were examined to study the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid system function in descendants of the Chernobyl survivors. Clinical, hormonal, ultrasound examinations and challenge test with tyroliberynom were conducted. Some abnormalities that might explain the functional strain of the hypothalamic-pituitary system were identified being of a great role in origination and progress of thyroid disease. The prolonged strain leads to decreased production of thyroid hormone, which causes an increased secretion of thyroid stimulating hormone. Under the influence of TSH the thyroid gland in the first stage becomes increased in its mass, which leads to the formation of endemic goiter. Stable and permanent thyroid gland enlargement often leads to formation of the nodular goiter and other proliferative processes, namely to carcinogenesis.
Keywords: children, the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid system, thyroid stimulating hormone, the Chornobyl NPP accident.

RADIOIMMUNOLOGIC ANALYSIS (RIA) IN PROGNOSIS OF HEMABLOSTOSIS COURSE
Summary. The article is devoted to improving the prognosis of the AML, ALL and CHLL, assess the effectiveness and further monitoring of treatment for leukemia data based on the determination of TC and P2-MCG in blood serum by RIA. The results of studies of TC and P2-MCG in 220 adult patients with leukemia aged 17 to 78 years: 97 with AML, 36 with ALL, 87 CHLL. Provide a rationale for determining the appropriateness of including the TC and-P2-MCG complex surveys in patients with AML, ALL and CHLL as a reliable and independent method for prognosis of the leukemias and their complications. The values of initial TC and P2-MCG patients may be divided into prognostic groups to establish the probable duration of survival, monitoring of treatment. For patients with AL TC values at more than 20.0 U/l in patients with CHLL — 30.0 U/l and at a level of P2-MCG exceeding 10.0 mg/l in all cases. Proved that patients with AML, ALL and CHLL had the highest survival in achieving a complete remission with a minimum initial concentrations of TC to 10.0 U/l and P2-MCG to 5.0 mg/l. On the dynamics of the content of TC and P2-MCG in remission may anticipate the threat of recurrence and timely use of appropriate medical tactics: with increasing levels of TC AML more than 6.0 U/l for ALL - 9.0 U/l for CHLL - 20.0 U/l.

CLINICAL AND ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF METHODS OF DIAGNOSIS OF DIFFERENTIATED THYROID CANCER RELAPSES
Summary. A pharmacoeconomic analysis of methods for detecting recurrences and / or metastases of differentiated thyroid cancer was performed and a comparative evaluation of the economic feasibility of the two strategies of relapse diagnosis of 45 patients was carried out.
Patients with elevated thyroglobulin more than 2.1 ng / ml are consistently performed neck ultrasound, scintigraphy with 99 mTc(V)-DMSA, computed tomography of the chest and scintigraphy with medical activities 131I. Reduction in the cost of diagnosis of recurrence and / or metastasis of DTC with using the proposed scheme is due to the fact that for the detection of recurrence and / or metastases the method of scintigraphy 99 mTc(V)-DMSA of much less value is used, and the need to use one the most expensive of all the diagnostic tests — scintigraphy with 131I occurs for a small number of (few) patients.
Thus, the administration of study with 99 mTc(V)-DMSA into a diagnostic algorithm of relapse detection of patients with DTC reduces the value of the diagnostic complex by 18 %.
