This study assessed tumor suppressor roles of CREBBP in SCLC and other neuroendocrine tumors. Genetically engineered mouse models were used to determine the tumor suppressor role of Crebbp in SCLC and other neuroendocrine tumors.
Papillary thyroid cancer has an excellent prognosis, but the appropriate level of treatment is controversial. We compared survival between total thyroidectomy and less-than-total thyroidectomy, and examined the proportion of patients with papillary thyroid cancer in Korea undergoing total thyroidectomy.
A new study inCancer Management and Research found a correlation between the age of patients with papillary thyroid cancer and lymph node positivity.
Combinations of BRAF inhibitor and anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody improve survival and tumour immunity in an immunocompetent model of orthotopic murine anaplastic thyroid cancer, Published online: 17 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41416-018-0296-2Combinations of BRAF inhibitor and anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody improve survival and tumour immunity in an immunocompetent model of orthotopic murine anaplastic thyroid cancer
Though previous research showed the MEK1/2 inhibitor could improve RAI effect, the phase 3 trial failed to reach its primary endpoint.Medscape Medical News
CONCLUSIONS: This case emphasizes that special consideration should be given to patients with VKA treatment planned to receive immunotherapy. PMID: 30318433 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The presented data and comparison with other commercially available tests suggest that the mir-THYpe test can be considered for use in clinical practice to support a more informed clinical decision for patients with indeterminate thyroid nodules and potentially reduce the rates of unnecessary thyroid surgeries.

Conclusion Upon to this study, red marrow dose varies with type of preparation as that of medication withdrawal cases was slightly higher than exogenous thyroid-stimulating hormone. Involvement of lesion and red marrow dose assessment through dosimetry protocol seems indeed valuable to optimize safe and effective activity compared with the conventional regime with 250 mCi as maximum empirical activity.
