A total of 96 tumour samples (88 primary tumours and 8 nodal metastases) from 88 patients with thyroid adenomas and carcinomas were investigated for ras gene mutations using polymerase chain reaction, oligonucleotide probing and sequencing. Neither the 19 adenomas nor the 31 papillary carcinomas analysed harboured point mutations. In our cases, mutations in all three ras oncogenes were found in follicular carcinomas (five out of 21) and in the less differentiated thyroid tumour: poorly… CONTINUE READING
