A Fas-associated via death domain promoter polymorphism (rs10898853, -16C/T) as a risk factor for papillary thyroid cancer.

PURPOSE To determine whether a Fas-associated via death domain (FADD) promoter single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is associated with susceptibility to papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) and clinicopathological features of PTC. METHODS To identify a possible association with PTC, 94 patients with PTC and 346 healthy controls were recruited. One promoter SNP… CONTINUE READING
