Overexpression of SET and MYND Domain-Containing Protein 2 (SMYD2) Is Associated with Tumor Progression and Poor Prognosis in Patients with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma.
CONCLUSIONS SMYD2 expression was upregulated in PTC tissues and significantly related to the poorer prognosis of PTC patients. Our studies suggested the potential role of SMYD2 as a new therapeutic target and prognostic biomarker in human PTC. PMID: 30319138 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: TSGs promoter hypermethylation is a hallmark of cancer and a test that uses methylation quantification method is suitable for diagnosis and prognosis of thyroid cancer. PMID: 31006665 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study explores the relationship of Vitamin D to papillary thyroid carcinoma stage while accounting for socioeconomic covariates.Materials and methodsThe medical records of all patients who underwent thyroidectomy at one institution between 2000 and 2015 were reviewed. Subjects with non-papillary thyroid cancer pathology, prior malignancy, and without Vitamin D levels were excluded. The remaining 334 patient records were examined for cancer stage, Vitamin D levels, Vitamin D deficiency listed in history, and demographic and comorbid factors.ResultsVitamin D laboratory values showed no significant relationship to cancer...
CONCLUSIONS: In this study, we found that miR-506 could inhibit the proliferation and metastasis of PTC cells. Meanwhile, IL17RD might be a downstream target of the biological process. Our findings provided a new therapeutic direction for the treatment of PTC. PMID: 31002136 [PubMed - in process]
In this study, we investigated if intestinal perforation occurred more frequently in patients with ectopic ACTH syndrome and in those with a greater than 10-fold elevation of 24-hour urinary free cortisol level. Of 110 patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome followed in two clinics in Canada, six cases with intestinal perforation were identified over 15 years. Age of patients ranged from 52 to 72, five females and one male, four with Cushing's disease and two with ectopic ACTH production, one from a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor and one from medullary carcinoma of the thyroid. Five had diverticular perforation an...
LRG‑1 enhances the migration of thyroid carcinoma cells through promotion of the epithelial‑mesenchymal transition by activating MAPK/p38 signaling. Oncol Rep. 2019 Apr 17;: Authors: Ban Z, He J, Tang Z, Zhang L, Xu Z Abstract Leucine‑rich‑alpha‑2‑glycoprotein 1 (LRG‑1) has been reported to be associated with multiple malignancies. However, its participation in thyroid carcinoma progression remains unclear. In the present study, the biological function and underlying molecular mechanisms of LRG‑1 in thyroid carcinoma were investigated. It was found that LRG‑1 was overexpressed in thyr...
ConclusionsThe results of the present study demonstrated, a statistically positive correlation of EGFR and CXCR1 expression in PTC compared to normal thyroid tissues and nodular hyperplasia in Qassim Region- Saudi Arabia. Concomitant high expression of both receptors were strongly correlated with LNM, DM, TNM stage and tumor relapse than did each alone. These findings suggest that EGFR and CXCR1 play crucial roles in PTC and serve as predictors of poor prognosis, biomarkers of tumor diagnosis, and potential targets of cancer therapeutics.
ConclusionOur patient was surprisingly still alive after metastatic disease was diagnosed 10 years ago and she had no major complaint other than a draining mass on her neck. Our primary aim by sharing this case is to underline potential renal metastasis from papillary thyroid carcinoma. In other words, when approaching primary renal tumors, possible distant metastases of other organs nee d to be kept in mind for differential diagnosis. In addition, it should be noted that if managed appropriately, the long-term survival in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma with multiple organ metastases could be encouraging.
CONCLUSIONS: Our study opens a considerable field of application in the domain of constitutional genetics, to establish genetic links between cancers and other very different severe diseases. PMID: 31004003 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The objective of the present study was to provide clinicians with the necessary diagnostic tools, based on the current state of clinical, imaging and pathologic knowledge, and to detail treatment options.
CONCLUSIONS The findings from this study have shown that gene regulation can be studied from exosomes obtained from serum samples in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma, and supports the need for further studies on the role of exosome circRNAs in thyroid cancer.
