In papillary thyroid carcinoma, expression by immunohistochemistry of BRAF V600E, PD-L1, and PD-1 is closely related
Immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies targeting PD-L1/PD-1 have been shown to be effective in treating several types of human cancer. In papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), little is known about theExpand

Carcinoid Arising From the Teratomatous Bronchial Mucosa in a Mature Cystic Teratoma of the Ovary: A Case Report
Primary ovarian carcinoids are relatively uncommon, either pure (monodermal teratomas) or in association with mature cystic teratomas. Here we reported a unique case of carcinoid arising from theExpand

Epigenetic silencing of TTF-1/NKX2-1 through DNA hypermethylation and histone H3 modulation in thyroid carcinomas
Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1), also known as NKX2-1, is a homeodomain containing transcriptional factor identified in thyroid, lung and central nervous system. In the thyroid, TTF-1 isExpand
