Thyroid carcinoma incidence is increased significantly after ionizing irradiation; however, the possible mechanisms have not yet been identified. To provide clues for an understanding of the radiation-induced transformation of thyroid epithelium, we analyzed the karyotypes of 56 childhood thyroid tumors that appeared in Belarus after the Chernobyl nuclear… (More)
