BACKGROUND Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have achieved remarkable clinical results in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) patients. However, the considerable variability in patient response to treatment with TKIs remains largely unexplained. There is evidence that it could be due, at least in part, to alterations in genes associated with the disease via(More)
The “Big Data” era has arisen, driven by the increasing availability of data from multiple sources such as social media, online transactions, network sensors or mobile devices.
