Latest research on Thyroid

Desiccated thyroid or thyroid extract, refers to porcine or bovine thyroid glands, dried and powdered for therapeutic use. In the last few decades, pork alone is the usual source.

Latest findings

Complete hemogram and biochemical panels including Thyroid, hepatic, and renal functions were normal. [source, 2016]
Similar approaches using RNA sequencing-based transcriptome analysis have been used to identify biomarkers in breast [20], colorectal [21], Thyroid [22], and metastatic prostate cancer [23]. [source, 2016]
Papillary Thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) is defined as a papillary Thyroid carcinoma measuring 1.0 cm or less in maximal diameter [1]. [source, 2016]
In the past, most patients with PTMC were diagnosed from specimens of Thyroid removed for benign diseases, such as Graves’ disease, follicular adenoma, and multinodular goiter. [source, 2016]
The central lymph nodes are considered as the first echelon of lymphatic metastasis and are the level most frequently involved in papillary Thyroid carcinoma (PTC) [3]. [source, 2016]
Zetoune et al. [9] showed that pCLND did not greatly reduce local recurrence in Thyroid cancer. [source, 2016]
Hence, how to evaluate accurately the status of CLNM and choose the CLND as an optimum operation plan for PTMC are very important in Thyroid operation. [source, 2016]
All patients had no history of Thyroid or neck surgery for nonThyroidial cancer, as well as of neck irradiation. [source, 2016]
ETE was defined as the tumor perimeter in contact with >25 % of the Thyroid capsule in a malignant lesion or the loss of the capsule line according to the ultrasound [12]. [source, 2016]
All the ultrasound features of the Thyroid nodules were retrospectively reviewed by two experienced radiologists. [source, 2016]
