Thyroid stimulating hormone receptor messenger RNA (TSHR-mRNA) is over-expressed in thyroid cancer patients, which indicates that TSHR-mRNA is a potential biomarker of thyroid cancer. However, system evaluation for TSHR-mRNA as a diagnostic biomarker of thyroid cancer is deficient. The performance of TSHR-mRNA for thyroid cancer diagnosis was evaluated in this study. Three common international databases as well as a Chinese database were applied for literature researching. Quality assessment of the included literatures was conducted by the QUADAS-2 tool...

BACKGROUND: It is widely accepted that maximal extrathyroidal extension (ETE) plays a vital role in the prognosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). However, there is no consensus among researchers about the meaning of minimal ETE (mETE) in PTC. Herein, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to examine the role of mETE in the prognosis of PTC. METHODS: We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane search trials databases in English to identify studies comparing data on disease recurrence in PTC patients with mETE and those with no ETE...

The prevalence of thyroid disease is likely increased among individuals with celiac disease (CD). In addition, exposure to gluten-free treatment may be associated with a risk of thyroid disease, but this association remains controversial. A systematic review was performed to evaluate the association between thyroid disease and CD. The articles were obtained from the PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and Chinese WanFang bibliographical databases for the period up to May 2016. The results were analysed in a meta-analysis with odds ratios (ORs) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs)...

Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) accounts for 80-90% of all thyroid malignancies. The tall cell variant (TCV) is a rare aggressive histotype of PTC. We performed a meta-analysis to compare the clinicopathological characteristics and prognostic factors of TCV with those of classical papillary thyroid carcinoma (cPTC). A literature search was performed using the PubMed and EMBASE databases using Medical Subject Headings and keywords. Twenty studies that included 1871 patients with TCV and 75323 patients with cPTC were included in our meta-analysis...

The association between neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is undecided. To rectify this question, we conducted a systematic meta-analysis based on 7 prospective cohort studies published between 2013 and 2015, comprising 7349 patients. Six of these cohorts included pretreatment (baseline) NLR data for patients with thyroid nodules. The meta-analysis of these 6 cohorts showed that the NLR of patients with DTC (4617 cases) was statistically similar to patients with benign nodules only (1666 cases), with a mean difference (MD) of 0...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid nodules are usually diagnosed using fine-needle aspiration (FNA). The sensitivity limitations of FNA result in 10-30% of nodules being classified as "indeterminate". The BRAF(V600E) mutation is associated with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). We conducted a systemic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic utility of the BRAF(V600E) mutation in indeterminate nodules. METHOD: PUBMED and EMBASE were searched for studies testing for the BRAF(V600E) involving indeterminate nodules (Thy3a, Thy3f, Thy4) and containing information on final surgical histopathology...

The ubiquitin pathway is an enzymatic cascade including activating E1, conjugating E2, and ligating E3 enzymes, which governs protein degradation and sorting. It is crucial for many physiological processes. Compromised function of members of the ubiquitin pathway leads to a wide range of human diseases, such as cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and neurodevelopmental disorders. Mutations in the thyroid hormone receptor interactor 12 (TRIP12) gene (OMIM 604506), which encodes an E3 ligase in the ubiquitin pathway, have been associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)...
