Trifluralin treatment increased the conjugation and excretion of thyroid hormones (TH), thereby increasing pituitary production of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and causing thyroid tumor development. The mode of action for tumor promotion by trifluralin has relevance to human health, as increased bile excretion coupled with decreased functioning of a shared class of thyroid hormone binding agents would be expected to cause similar effects in humans.
