Summary

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.

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.

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.
