    Abstract : Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is a puzzling disease. Although approximately 70% of patients with PTC have regional lymph node metastases at initial surgery, the long term survival is over 95%. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular aspects of post-Chornobyl and sporadic papillary thyroid carcinoma

    Author : Andrii Dinets; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; papillary thyroid carcinoma;

    Abstract : Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) exhibits various molecular abnormalities, both when sporadic and radiation-related. PTC is still diagnosed in adult individuals who were younger than 18 years at the time of the Chornobyl accident in 1986 and lived within the contaminated area. READ MORE

    Abstract : Thyroid cancer accounts for approximately 1% of all cancers reported. In Sweden 45/100, 000 inhabitants annually present with thyroid carcinoma. There are four different variants of thyroid carcinoma: papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), follicular thyroid carcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma and anaplastic thyroid carcinoma. READ MORE

    Abstract : Anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is a rare and highly aggressive thyroid malignancy, usually resistant to conventional therapeutic strategies. The prognosis of ATC is extremely poor with a median survival rate of 6 months. Current treatment therapy includes surgical resection in combination with external radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

    Abstract : Tumors of the thyroid gland are common among the general population, but only a small proportion is malignant. The vast majority of thyroid tumors are benign, so called follicular adenomas. Sometimes subtypes such as atypical adenomas and adenomas with oxyphil, i.e. READ MORE
