ATA 2018 Coverage
Molecular testing may identify benign disease in some patients with thyroid nodules classified as suspicious for malignancy, helping them avoid unnecessary treatment.
Adherence to the 2015 recommendation from ATA — to use lobectomy rather than complete thyroidectomy for low-risk differentiated thyroid cancer — is increasing.
Immune-related gene sets, including those for PD-L1/L2, are upregulated in ATC and PTC, but not in poorly differentiated disease or normal tissue.
The addition of selumetinib to radioactive iodine did not improve the complete remission rate among patients with high-risk nonmetastatic differentiated thyroid cancer.
Childhood radiation-induced thyroid cancer does not affect all-cause mortality compared with healthy individuals.
RET inhibitor LOXO-292 was well tolerated and demonstrated high antitumor activity against RET-altered thyroid cancers.
Malignancy was more common in children with thyroid nodules classified as indeterminate by BSRTC criteria compared with adults.
High serum soluble PD-L1 levels are associated with shorter disease-free survival among patients with papillary thyroid cancer.
Ethanol sensitization before radiofrequency ablation of benign thyroid nodules reduced time, ablation energy, and complications compared with conventional ablation.
Outcomes after radioiodine therapy are similar after preparation with either recombinant human thyrotropin or thyroid hormone withdrawal.
Postoperative radioiodine remnant ablation did not improve long-term outcomes among patients with low-risk papillary thyroid carcinoma.
Most imaging centers in the United States fail to analyze lateral neck lymph nodes during preoperative ultrasounds in patients with thyroid cancer.
The BABA robotic thyroidectomy technique appears to be safe, with excellent outcomes in benign and malignant thyroid disease.
First-Line Pembrolizumab Plus Chemoradiotherapy Found to Be Ineffective in Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer
Pembrolizumab plus chemoradiotherapy failed to improve survival and lead to unexpected deaths in a small study of patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer.
Thyroid-based immune-related adverse events are common among patients treated with PD-L1 inhibitors.
The TRK inhibitor larotrectinib was effective and well tolerated among patients with relapsed/refractory advanced TRK-fusion thyroid cancer.
Tumor suppressor and driver genes are frequently mutated in Korean patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer.
