Incidence of thyroid cancer has doubled globally, analysis finds
The number of people diagnosed with thyroid cancer has more than doubled worldwide since 1990, fueled by a rise in cases in Asia. The United States accounts for 10 percent of cases worldwide.

Authors: Markova ND Abstract The current review provides data and focuses on blood as a niche for the presence of cell wall-deficient microbes (L-forms). The hypothesis for the existence of L-form microbiota in humans was tested by us using an innovative methodology for the isolation of L-form cultures from human blood. Criteria were conceived for the individual assessment of blood microbiota and recognition of two types of states -- "eubiotic" and "dysbiotic" blood microbiota. Cell wall-deficient microbes (CWD) that inhabit blood in healthy people are in natural balance with the host homeostasi...

ConclusionDepending on nuclear or cytoplasmic expression, our study shows that THR α and its isoforms 1 and 2 provide different prognostic information for ovarian cancer patients. Further investigations should analyze if THRs may represent new endocrine targets for the treatment of ovarian cancer.
Enhancers are cis-regulatory DNA elements that positively regulate the transcription of target genes in a tissue-specific manner, and dysregulation of target genes could lead to various diseases, such as cancer. Recent studies have shown that enhancers can regulate microRNAs (miRNAs) and participate in their biological synthesis. However, the network of enhancer-regulated miRNAs across multiple cancers is still unclear. Here, a total of 2,418 proximal enhancer–miRNA interactions and 1,280 distal enhancer–miRNA interactions were identified through the integration of genomic distance, co-expression, and 3D genome...
Thyroid lobectomy is performed for symptomatic benign nodules, indeterminate nodules, or low-risk well-differentiated thyroid cancer. We aimed to determine factors associated with need for thyroid hormone supplementation following thyroid lobectomy.
Conclusion68 Ga-DOTATATE is an essential part of the work-up for patients with MTC. This modality outperformed CI in 14/38 (37%) patients and changed the clinical management in 13/38 (34%) patients. Prospective randomized studies with image-guided therapy decisions are needed to further reveal the impact of PE T imaging in patients with MTC.

In conclusion, IGHBP3 might be involved in the development of LNM in PTC patients. IGHBP3 over-expression might be a novel indicator and a potential target for PTC therapy.
