Presence of thyroglobulin after radioiodine treatment may indicate recurrence of thyroid cancer
Detecting thyroglobulin (Tg) after initial surgery and radioactive iodine (131I) therapy for thyroid cancer may be predictive of an early cancer recurrence, according to a study reported at the 14th International Thyroid Congress, Doctor's Guide reports.
New drug may increase survival rates of anaplastic thyroid cancer patients
At the International Thyroid Congress in Paris, researchers from the University of Pisa in Italy explained their research on a study of Zybrestat in the treatment of anaplastic thyroid cancer.
New type of radiation therapy delivers faster treatment
Recent studies have shown that TomoTherapy - a system used to treat common and rare tumors throughout the body - may be more effective than other types of radiation.
Thyroid cancer patients are increasingly using alternative therapies
In a report presented during the recent International Thyroid Congress, researchers from Boston University (BU) Medical Center found that more than 80 percent of patients with thyroid cancer report using some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapy. However, for 18 percent of those individuals, their CAM use was neither known nor prescribed by their physician, and their physician did not ask them about it, Endocrine Today reports.
Researchers discover new model for predicting the effects of osteoporosis on the general public
An article recently published in the journal Osteoporosis International demonstrates a new model that describes the current and future issues related to postmenopausal osteoporosis.
New type of surgery may benefit thyroid cancer patients
Doctors at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit are performing a new type of surgery that can remove thyroid cancer tumors without visible scarring, and without affecting speech or the ability to eat. An incisionless robotic surgical procedure called TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS) allows patients to return to their normal lives in only a few days without significant pain or disfigurement.
China sees increase in hypothyroidism cases
A recent study conducted by the Chinese Medical Association's endocrinology branch shows that approximately one in 15 citizens is suffering from hypothyroidism. According to China Daily, this could be related to the nation's 1995 mandate to add iodine to salt.

Actress Jennifer Grey may be best known for her role in the movie Dirty Dancing, and she has recently joined the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars (DWTS). However, the actress recently battled thyroid cancer, which was found during her pre-DWTS health screening, USA Today reports.
Molecular imaging could improve thyroid cancer detection and treatment
A series of studies published in the latest issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine show that molecular imaging plays a critical role in the evaluation and treatment of a spectrum of cancers, including thyroid cancer, neuroendocrine tumors, Hodgkin lymphoma and non-small cell lung cancer, Health Imaging reports.
Mayo Clinic creates four new anaplastic thyroid cancer cell lines for research
Several years ago, scientists from the Mayo Clinic discovered that the laboratory samples of anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) that they were using for research were from some other type of cancer. The researchers then set out to create a new set of laboratory ATC cells, derived from tumors donated by patients.
Radiation exposure may increase risk of thyroid disorders
One potential cause of thyroid disorders is exposure to radiation. People who have been exposed to production of nuclear weapons or above-ground detonation of an atomic bomb may have a higher risk for developing thyroid cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Moreover, children who have been exposed to nuclear substances may be more vulnerable to these conditions than adults.
Mutated gene may induce development of thyroid cancer
Scientists at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center have identified a gene called PTEN that may induce the development of thyroid cancer when mutated.
Mayo Clinic: Rarely used anaplastic thyroid cancer treatment highly effective
Doctors at the Mayo Clinic have said that a new approach to anaplastic thyroid cancer, which is a rare malignancy, has produced significant results, although it has only been used on a small group of patients.
