Blood Levels of microRNAs May Serve as Diagnostic Tool for Thyroid Cancer, But More Research Needed, University of Sydney Study
Published: Oct 30, 2013
A new analysis has found that the presence of short segments of genetic material (known as microRNA) within papillary thyroid cancer tumors suggests a likelihood of recurrence after patients undergo surgery. The study, which is published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, also found that elevated blood levels of the genetic material after surgery may indicate a higher possibility of recurrence after thyroidectomy.
