Study of Clinical Outcomes of Thyroid Cancer

2019-07-29 13:47:40 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The Italian Thyroid Cancer Observatory (ITCO) repository was established to collect data on thyroid cancer management in a prospective and consecutive series of newly-diagnosed patients, enrolled in centers uniformly distributed across the nation.

Description

Little information is available on current practices in the treatment of thyroid cancer: a web-based thyroid cancer database was created to collect real-life data. The participants' network include tertiary referral centers operating at the national level, as well as smaller hospital-based units with local or regional recruitment areas.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the THYROID GLAND.

A paired box transcription factor that functions in the development of THYROCYTES and the control of thyroid-specific gene expression. Mutations in the PAX8 gene are associated with THYROID DYSGENESIS and THYROID NEOPLASMS.

A hypermetabolic syndrome caused by excess THYROID HORMONES which may come from endogenous or exogenous sources. The endogenous source of hormone may be thyroid HYPERPLASIA; THYROID NEOPLASMS; or hormone-producing extrathyroidal tissue. Thyrotoxicosis is characterized by NERVOUSNESS; TACHYCARDIA; FATIGUE; WEIGHT LOSS; heat intolerance; and excessive SWEATING.

An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.

Works about trials that aim to show a new treatment is no better and no worse than the standard treatment.
