Thyroglobulin Measurement in Needle Aspiration for Detection of Recurrences and Neck Metastases in Patients with Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma: Significance of Anti-Tg Antibodies.

Acta Clin Croat 2020 Jun;59(Suppl 1):9-17

1Department of Oncology and Nuclear medicine, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center, Zagreb, Croatia; 2School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia; 3Faculty of Medicine, University of Osijek, Osijek, Croatia; 4Department for Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Protection, Osijek University Hospital Center, Croatia.

The worldwide incidence of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) has increased in recent decades, likely due to frequent use of cervical ultrasonography (US) and US-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA)., US is performed during follow-up after thyroidectomy, and US-guided FNA with cytology is used if suspicious cervical lymph nodes (LN) or thyroid bed masses are detected. Knowing that serum anti-Tg antibodies (sTgAb) affect the use of serum Tg (sTg) as a tumor marker, the aim of our study was to assess the usefulness of Tg determination in needle aspirates (FNA-Tg) in presence of sTgAb.

Pediatr Blood Cancer 2021 04 18;68(4):e28912. Epub 2021 Jan 18.

Hereditary Digestive Tract Tumors Unit, Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale Tumori, Milan, Italy.

Introduction: Mutations of the APC (adenomatous polyposis coli) gene correlate mainly with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), but can occasionally be pathogenic for medulloblastoma (MBL) wingless-related integration site (WNT) subtype, the course of which has only recently been described.

Update on the systemic management of radioactive iodine refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (Review).

Mol Clin Oncol 2021 Feb 24;14(2):35. Epub 2020 Dec 24.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Regional Cancer Center, Medical College Campus, Trivandrum, 695011 Kerala, India.

The incidence of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) has increased over the last few decades, though it remains to be a rare disease. The prognosis of DTC is excellent; its treatment includes surgery (near-/total thyroidectomy), which is usually followed by remnant thyroid bed ablation using radio-iodine, as well as a risk-stratified follow-ups, including hormone replacement. Treatment of patients who are non-responsive to radioactive iodine (RAI) remains a challenge. Read More
