Case control on thyroid cancer occuring in a cohort of 7300 subjects treated during their childhood, mostly by radiotherapy, for a skin Angioma at Gustave Roussy, Villejuif France between 1947 and 1973.
This case control study, which is included in a larger european project, aims to investigate the DNA variant interacting with the risk of radiation induced thyroid cancer after irradiation.
The sutdy is planed to include about 30 cases and 30 controls. Matching criteria are date of birth, gender, and age at irradiation.

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...
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...
The primary purpose is to determine how effective AG-013736 is in shrinking thyroid cancer that is resistant to radioactive iodine
We conducted this meta-analysis to assess the effectiveness of parathyroid gland autotransplantation in preserving parathyroid function during thyroid surgery for thyroid neoplasms.
Thyroid hormone is essential for normal fetal brain development in utero and for the first 2 years of life. The developing fetus is initially reliant upon maternal thyroid hormones that cross the plac...
Impact of non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasms with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) on risk of malignancy in patients undergoing lobectomy/thyroidectomy for suspicious for malignancy or malignant fine-needle aspiration cytology findings: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
The second version of the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology endorsed the introduction of non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasms with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) as a d...
From the very beginning of pregnancy, the maternal thyroid has to adapt to increased thyroid hormone secretion of up to 50 %. This is paralleled by changes in thyroid-stimulating-hormone (TSH) secreti...
Air pollutants interact with estrogen nuclear receptors, but their effect on thyroid signaling is less clear. Thyroid function is of particular importance for pregnant women because of the thyroid's r...
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.
Autoantibodies that bind to the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor (RECEPTORS, THYROTROPIN) on thyroid epithelial cells. The autoantibodies mimic TSH causing an unregulated production of thyroid hormones characteristic of GRAVES DISEASE.
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...
