Single-Cell Transcriptome Analysis Reveals Inter-Tumor Heterogeneity in Bilateral Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma.

Front Immunol 2022 20;13:840811. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Thyroid Surgery, General Surgery, Qilu Hospital of Shandong University, Jinan, China.

Background: The tumor microenvironment (TME) plays a pivotal role in cancer progression in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), yet the composition and the phenotype of cells within the TME in bilateral PTC are poorly understood.

Audit of Demographics, Treatment Patterns and Outcomes of Differentiated Thyroid Cancers Treated with Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2022 Mar 29;13(1):81-86. Epub 2021 Oct 29.

Department of Medical Oncology, Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India.

The real-world patterns of TKI use in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) are largely governed by the accessibility and financial feasibility of the patient with more sorafenib use compared to lenvatinib. There are limited data available on the toxicity profile, safety and tolerance of sorafenib and lenvatinib in DTC. Hence, we audited our practice on DTC. Read More

Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma with Spindle Cell Metaplasia: A Rare Encounter.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Mar 30;12(4). Epub 2022 Mar 30.

Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur 56000, Malaysia.

A myriad of histological variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) have been described, some of which can be diagnostically challenging due to their rarity and overlapping histomorphology with other entities. One of the scarce and poorly characterised variants is PTC with spindle cell metaplasia, of which fewer than 20 cases have been reported in the literature hitherto. Our patient was a 51-year-old woman with a four-month history of painless, gradually enlarging neck swelling. Read More

Wnt3a but not CDX-2 expression is associated with differentiated thyroid cancer.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2022 Mar;68(3):400-404

Faculdade de Medicina da Escola Evangélica Mackenzie, Medical Research Institute - Curitiba (PR), Brazil.

Objective: Thyroid neoplasm incidence has increased worldwide, mostly due to the advancements in medical imaging and screening rates. The aberrant Wnt/β-catenin pathway has been identified as a key mechanism, and it has also been related to the metastatic activity of differentiated thyroid cancer. We aimed to verify the difference in the expression of Wnt3a, a canonical activator of the β-catenin signaling, and CDX-2, a transcription factor upregulated by Wnt/β-catenin pathway, in multinodular goiter and differentiated thyroid cancer and to determine their prognostic value.

Comparative Proteomic Profiling of Ectosomes Derived from Thyroid Carcinoma and Normal Thyroid Cells Uncovers Multiple Proteins with Functional Implications in Cancer.

Cells 2022 Mar 31;11(7). Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Department of Glycoconjugate Biochemistry, Faculty of Biology, Institute of Zoology and Biomedical Research, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, 30-387 Krakow, Poland.

Proteins carried by tumor-derived ectosomes play an important role in cancer progression, and are considered promising diagnostic markers. In the present study, a shotgun nanoLC-MS/MS proteomic approach was applied to profile and compare the protein content of ectosomes released in vitro by normal human thyroid follicular epithelial Nthy-ori 3-1 cells and human anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (TC) 8305C cells. Additionally, the pro-migratory and pro-proliferative effects of Nthy-ori 3-1- and 8305C-derived ectosomes exerted on the recipient cells were assessed in wound closure and Alamar Blue assays.
