BACKGROUND Differentiation between parathyroid hyperplasia and adenoma is difficult and based on the surgeon's skill. Microarrays and other sophisticated research tools generate information about differential gene expression in various tissues. Exploration of genes that express differentially in 1 tissue will enable identification and perhaps development of new methods of preoperative or intraoperative diagnosis. METHODS RNA was extracted from parathyroid hyperplasia and adenoma tissue and… CONTINUE READING
