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.
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.

RATIONALE: Gathering information about patients with thyroid cancer or thyroid nodules may help the study of thyroid cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This study is gathering information and...
Resected well-differentiated thyroid neoplasms with at least one high risk feature will receive adjuvant radiation using IMRT with SIB. The acute toxicity and locoregional control rate at...
The standard surgical treatment for highly differentiated papillary thyroid cancer > 10 mm according to recent national and international guidelines, is total thyroidectomy and central lym...
Participants in this study will be patients diagnosed with or suspected to have a thyroid nodule or thyroid cancer. The main purpose of this study is to further understand the methods for...
Human thyroglobulin (Tg) is the most sensitive biochemical marker for recurrence of differentiated cancer (DTC), especially after the complete removal of thyroid tissue through surgery and...
We conducted this meta-analysis to assess the effectiveness of parathyroid gland autotransplantation in preserving parathyroid function during thyroid surgery for thyroid neoplasms.
The majority of patients with thyroid cancer have a remarkably good chance of cure in the context of surgical treatment, due to their mostly local tumor spread. However, a small proportion of patien...
Authors' response to the letter "Temozolomide-Capecitabine (TemCap) chemotherapy for Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NENs): the dilemma of treatment duration" by Lamarca et al. regarding the original manuscript "Activity and Safety of Standard and Prolonged Capecitabine/Temozolomide Administration in Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Neoplasms."
n/a, this is a response to a letter to the editor.
Immunotherapy is a standard not only in second line but also in first line treatment in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and other tumors. Thyroid dysfunctions are the most common endo...
Amiodarone (AMD) treatment is associated with a number of significant adverse effects including thyroid dysfunction. However, the relationship between the development of thyroid dysfunction and the do...
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.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
