Circular RNA circ_0103552 promotes the invasion and migration of thyroid carcinoma cells by sponging miR-127.
CONCLUSIONS: The present study demonstrated that circ-0103552 acts as a regulator in the invasion and migration of TC by sponging miR-127. PMID: 32196608 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Fusion genes were the most common genetic cause of pediatric PTCs. Fusion gene positive PTCs showed more aggressive behavior than fusion gene negative PTCs. Several novel rearrangements were identified. Fusion genes seem to be a molecular marker number one in pediatric PTC patients. PMID: 32495721 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The expression of LINC00163 in NSCLC tissues and cells is upregulated, and highly expressed LINC00163 can promote PTC cell proliferation and metastasis by regulating the EMT. PMID: 32495885 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: LT4-induced SCH, which is a part of traditional DTC treatment, can exacerbate the anxiety symptoms in patients and disrupt their quality of life, depending on the level of fT4. PMID: 32490648 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: This preliminary proof-of-concept study suggests a role for nCounter technology, a digital gene expression analysis technique, as an adjunct assay for the molecular diagnosis of thyroid neoplasms. PMID: 32489258 [PubMed - in process]
This study aimed to compare ultrasonography (US) features and the Korean-Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (K-TIRADS) categories for diagnosing isthmic and lobar papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC).Methods: From January 2009 to December 2012, 163 patients who underwent thyroid surgery and were confirmed with a post-operative histopathological diagnosis of isthmic PTC were retrospectively included. Fifty-nine patients were excluded because their tumor size was
CONCLUSIONS: Extra-thoracic metastases of thymoma are exceptional but their existence should not be overlooked. Their management is not standardised because of lack of data in the literature. Though surgical excision in oligo-metastatic subjects is a frequently reported therapeutic option, a radiotherapeutic approach, particularly in cerebral situations, could be a credible alternative.

We report a rare case of 74-year-old female of primary hyperparathyroidism caused by parathyroid carcinoma (PC) and coexisting multiple parathyroid adenomas. She was referred to our hospital for primary hyperparathyroidism and a suspected thyroid tumor. She had no family history of malignant tumor. Computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography of the neck revealed some masses posterior to both thyroid lobes. Those masses were believed to be parathyroid lesions. However, another mass located posterior to the right upper thyroid lobe seemed to be heterogeneous, which indicated a malignant thyroid tumor as well as parathyroid ...
We describe a unique, complex case of a man resulted affected by both APS-2 and MEN-2a. The patient developed Hashimoto's thyroiditis, diabetes mellitus type 1 and AAD, despite testing negative for adrenal cortex autoantibodies (ACA) and steroid 21-hydroxylase autoantibodies (21-OHAb). Moreover, he had also a family history for MEN-2a and he first developed medullay thyroid cancer, then bilateral pheochromocytoma on the adrenal substrate of an AAD. On adrenal histology we found complete bilateral cortical atrophy in the presence of a lymphocytic infiltration and fibrosis, confirming an ACA and 21-OHAb-negative AAD. This da...
Abstract BACKGROUND: Few studies have categorized ultrasound (US) findings of various sized medullary thyroid carcinomas (MTCs) according to updated guidelines. PURPOSE: To evaluate and compare the differences in US findings of MTC according to nodule size, using the Korean Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (K-TIRADS) and American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 119 patients with 129 MTC nodules, which were surgically confirmed at our institution between March 1999 and September 2017. Nodules were divided into large (≥1.0 cm) and small (
Abstract Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) comprise a heterogeneous group of tumors, mainly localized in the gastrointestinal system. What characterizes NENs is the expression of hormone receptors on the tumor cell surface, making them accessible for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches (theranostics) using radiolabelled peptides. Somatostatin receptors subtype-two (SST2) play an important role in NENs since they are overexpressed and homogeneously distributed at the surface of the majority of NENs. Accordingly, targeting SST2 for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes has been established. Current research aims at up...
