Development of a microRNA-based molecular assay for the detection of papillary thyroid carcinoma in aspiration biopsy samples.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Although thyroid nodules are common and diagnosed in over 5% of the adult population, only 5% harbor malignancy. Patients with clinically suspicious thyroid nodules need to undergo fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). The main limitation of FNAB remains indeterminate cytopathology. Only 20%-30% of the indeterminate nodules harbor malignancy, and… (More)
